    Ok…I must ask, is this pic real? I thought women had a nice thick lining around the baby or something (like I know what I am talking about). If this pic is real, then that baby is really pushing…

  • i think the big toe is on the wrong side for that side of the tummy, but if the baby lies diagonal it might could push on the stomach like that. So how can the picture and the photographer’s credit get separated so easily? Or even photoshop artist’s?

  • That’s CLEARLY a photoshop. Besides the placenta, there’s the layers of skin and other tissue to go through so there’s no way a baby’s foot would make as defined an impression as that.
    Or, to put it another way, the total thickness of all tissue between foot and outer skin in that pic is no more than an eighth of an inch, so it’s bogus.
    Simple biology

  • I hate to tell you people it is possible to see limbs of an older baby when pregnant. when I was like 7 or 8 months pregnant and laying on my side I could clearly see my daughter streatching with her hands. I personally feel its possible.

  • Foot or PhotoShop?

    What’s you’re vote on this?
     
     
     It comes via CNet’s Newsblog, with the following quote.
     
     Amid all the recent chatter about "intelligent design" and speculation over Roe vs. Wade’s fate…

  • Photoshop.
    First of all, the foot is too large; when have you ever seen a newborn with a foot that large and defined? The feet of infants are (usually) shorter and wider. That photo doesn’t look like a baby’s foot at all; nevermind the foot of a neonate.
    Plus, the bones of an infant’s feet are too fragile to be able to push hard enough to show an outline that clear through the wall of the mother’s uterus, and the abdominal fascia, and whatever else which makes up the mother’s abdominal wall. Aren’t there any doctors out there to comment on this further?
    Heck, the mother would have to have an abdomen like an inflated party balloon, with nothing else between the baby and the outside world. It even *looks* like a small foot that someone carved out of wood or something, that is pushing from the inside of a flesh-colored balloon!

  • I totally believe this picture, I myself have pictures of my child pressing out, i was between 6-8 1/2 months when my baby was doing it. It is possible and very true

  • IM IN SHOCKED..!! BUT IS IT POSSIBLE? IM ALREADY 8 MONTHS PREGNANT AND I CAN FEEL A LOT OF MOVEMENTS THAT I CAN TELL WHEN IS A HAND OR FOOT.. BUT THE THING OF THIS PICTURE IS THAT THE FOOT IS TOO BIG..DONT U THINK? HOPE TO KNOW FOR SURE THE TRUTH OF THIS PICTURE…THNKS!

  • this is me – andrew – who found and posted the image – i really think someone fiddled with this picture in photoshop to make a point. – perhaps that it is a real person in there.
    if it was real . . it would be quite painful.
    someone please tell me if i am wrong
