I have a slight paranoia that any pregnancy I have might be delivered like something out of an Alien movie, so yeah… that’s a little freaky.

I love stuff like this! It’s creepy but so cool. I actually find that picture pretty cute 🙂

Pregnancy in general is weird to me. I can’t wrap my mind around the fact that there’s another whole human being inside of you… to me, it’s this mysterious kicking ball until it comes out and then ta-da! – it’s a baby!

I pretty much think that pic is fake.   I am 34+ weeks pregnant now and, while I do get a little knee or foot or something that does kind of poke out,  I really don’t think you could see an actual foot print showing like that.  Much less be able to take a pic of it.

“It’s definitely Photoshop.
1. To see that impression, the amniotic fluid would have to be gone.
2. The angle the foot and leg would have to be at and the force required to make the impression would be impossible for a child that size and strength.
3. The shadowing given the location of the light source is off-the heel and ball of foot and toes are all shadowed at slightly different angles.”

I love babies, but that does freak me out a little bit. Videos where you can see extreme movement kind of freak me out too. 

Like this one:

ETA: Oh and I know that the photo is likely photoshopped, but I don’t care. It’s still creepy.

@LMD84: Sorry! Lol that’s how I was when I saw a link to that video on another page a long time ago. I kept saying “I’m not going to click it! I’m not going to click it!” About five minutes later I just said “Ah what the heck!” The only thing that made me feel better was showing that to my Fiance. Not much grosses him out, but that did!

Yeah, sorry…that’s super gross. I love pregnancy and I think it’s so beautiful but THAT photo itself, yuck.

I found it when I was pregnant, freaked out and sent it to my sister. She actually named the photographer who photo shopped that so I felt more at ease. The only “real” thing that scared me while I was pregnant was when my son would get his foot stuck near my rib. Oy. That was painful.

So obviously photoshopped.

Okay, I knew that the first photo had to be photoshopped; thank you @MrsRugbee: for confirming that.

I also wanted to add something about the video link for those of you that may be planning to get pregnant and/or are pregnant. The movement that they are experiencing in the video is not typical. I am thinking that there has to be more than one baby in there for that much movement.

I have had three full term babies and speaking from experience, they were pretty active; depending on what I ate, etc., but they were never that active. I could; however, see movement on several occasions and at first was pretty freaked out, but after I got over the initial shock, I was quite happy with their activity because I knew they were very healthy and anxious to come out and be in the real world. It isn’t so bad when it is your own body that this is happening to. It is actually pretty amazing 🙂
