Most mothers-to-be expect hospital staff to give them a few words of reassurance when they go for a routine scan.

But Marie Boswell got all the encouragement she needed from her unborn baby boy himself.

As these amazing pictures show, he gave Miss Boswell the thumbs-up when she went for her 20-week check.

That’s the finger gesture equivalent to ‘the bird’ for the Middle East. He’s going to kick jihadi butt when he gets older.

My husband, a radiologist, did an ultrasound on me when I was pregnant with our oldest daughter. I watched her put her thumb in her mouth. Coincidentally, she was not much of a thumb sucker after birth. Her younger sister did enough of that for both of them!

Interesting this is in the UK Daily Mail. You would probably never see it in any US newspaper.

The Daily Mail and the UK Telegraph are owned by the Barclay brothers who are in their 70s. They came from a large Scottish family that grew up poor in England and they are Catholics. They built their businesses up through hard work and smarts.

There two papers and Investors Business Daily owend by Wm O’Neil are the only decent English speaking papers probably in the world. All of them are free enterprise and they are not Davos, on-worlder, Bilderberger, CFR, UN-loving elites.

In ‘83, my daughter was playing with her umbilical cord in one sonogram. In 91, my son was sucking his thumb.

Daughter is now freaking out that HER son has a big head and big feet... and seems to be ahead of the gestational calendar by 2 weeks - she’s not ready for this! I give her three more weeks! Can’t wait!

So, would our Somalis also take offense if I gave them the "thumbs up"?

I only had ultrasounds with my first and third babies. First, I remember, had his hand under his head and looked like he was kicking back. The third baby was moving his lips as if he were saying something or making kissy faces. Even those I didn’t see via ultrasound had personality quirks in the womb that I still see to this day.

I don’t know about Squatomalia specifically but I’m pretty sure it applies there, too.

Aw. My baby girl held her hand up as if to wave “hello.” The ultra sound tech typed in the word, “hi” next to her. lol

The big head would concern me for "comfort" reasons. lol But tell her not to worry too much. I was measuring a full month ahead and the doctor was worried that little Anna was going to be over 9lbs.

Well, she was just under 8lbs when she was born (on her due date, no less). I carried her really high and straight out. ;)

A carrier pilot ready for takeoff? Someone tell that kid to wait a few months.

Close.

A pilot on the catapult signals “ready to launch” by saluting the cat officer.

Then one goes on the fastest ride of one’s life.

She was complaining that all her clothes are so tight cause of her butt! I reminded her that her TUMMY was what was growing...and pulling the clothes across her butt!

When they figured out the baby was too big for term, they asked about how big daddy was at birth. over 9 lbs! She’s freaking out...

I’ll be down there in two weeks - I pray she waits till I get there! With my luck, she’ll have him the ONE weekend in between visits! Exciting times coming!

Remarkable, the miracle of human life and what it tells us. I hope I will be forgiven for going completely out of context here.

It is little two year old Maddox Flynn of Edmonton, Canada. He was born with an awful deformity due to a medical condition, this of his face. It was thought that he might lose an eye if surgery corrected it. I understand and with all respect to Canadian surgeons, that it could not be performed in Canada.

Monies were raised by Canadians and the little chap operated on in New York. The eye was saved and the results are said to be satisfactory. Parents are ecstatic. He will be up and playing Sunday.

Got a little emotional here. God bless the American surgeons.
