i dont think its fake but why they are labelling it as alien etc is just the stupid part
i dont think it is that rare, it just looks like a very active baby, everyone gets that moving lumpy shape changing stomach thing to some extent she just has it more?

I think she maybe doesn't have much amniotic fluid cushioning the baby. She's also very slim so the movements are more obvious.

I don't think it is fake. DD used to move around like that but I have a cosy layer of fat so I couldn't see the movements quite so clearly.

I don't know what to think.confused

Looks like very big baby arms or legs up against mum's skin.

Nah, I saw that a couple of days ago on Jezebel. TBH I was expecting it to be fake but I don't think it is. DS was the same. Don't think they called it alien though...

I don't think it's fake either. DS1 was a bit like that (although obv not to the same extent) - I was 7.5 stone when I got pregnant with him, and he was a big baby. I think it just shows more on skinny mothers.

Yep just an active little dude in there. I think its a bit patronising to sun readers/viewers tbh grin

MerryMarigold Wed 24-Nov-10 22:16:42

I was pregnant with twins and looked like this all the time. Especially lying in the bath grin!

BuntyPenfold Wed 24-Nov-10 22:16:55

I don't think it is fake, mine moved around very vigourously and it showed nearly as much as that.

FerminaUrbinoDaza Wed 24-Nov-10 22:18:03

It's all in the context. here.

Vallhala Wed 24-Nov-10 22:18:03

Not in the least. I had a similar experience when DD1 turned the right way round very late into my pregnancy. It was quite a thing to see!
I was very slim too, which by all accounts explains some of it.

natandchris10 Wed 24-Nov-10 22:18:44

i remember my LO being active but this is soo weird looking! maybe its the angle she is sitting / laying?

booyhoo Wed 24-Nov-10 22:20:00

why would it be fake? ds2 moved alot and it was really painful. not as much as that but i think that is totally possible.

mylittlemonkey Wed 24-Nov-10 22:20:21

There are loads of very similar videos on you tube. Dont think its that wierd really. Was expecting a lot more bizare than that really considering the headline.

TragicallyHip Wed 24-Nov-10 22:21:40

Nah I don't think it's fake. Strange to see as I never had that much movement but seems pretty real to me.

LynetteScavo Wed 24-Nov-10 22:22:10

That's actually made me broody!

Mine used to wriggle like that...made sleeping really difficult.

I do think it depends on how much fat you have as to how much you can see the baby move.

tigerchilli Wed 24-Nov-10 22:23:08

I was slim (still am) during my pregnancies and carrying big active babies. I didn't see anything I've not seen before.

Maybe I should have rang the Sun? <Ack not really> grin

booyhoo Wed 24-Nov-10 22:25:21

"That's actually made me broody!"

not just me then lynette? grin

CaptainKirksNipples Wed 24-Nov-10 22:26:09

I could make out limbs and elbows when mine moved. I think she is very slim, and baby is very active. Also the angle and light make it look very obvious. not fake though.

redflag Wed 24-Nov-10 22:26:59

Bloody hell, my son made that baby look relatively peaceful!How is this news?

natandchris10 Wed 24-Nov-10 22:28:35

redflag.. its not news.. hence its in AIBU..

3littlefrogs Wed 24-Nov-10 22:32:07

It is an occipito-posterior position and a slim mum. You can clearly see all the limbs at the front. Perfectly normal.

redflag Wed 24-Nov-10 22:33:27

No i was referring to the sun, having it as a story, not you!

natandchris10 Wed 24-Nov-10 23:03:27
