One expectant mother got the shock of her life when a DUCK appeared in her scan picture alongside her unborn daughter. Courtney Fenwick, 28, from Newcastle-upon-Tyne, had conceived baby Laura on her third round of IVF after three years of fertility problems.
It was a difficult pregnancy, with Courtney developing diabetes and Laura in a breech position – meaning a C-section was necessary.
But the scan photo brought laughter to the couple. Courtney told Mirror Online: “It was my husband who spotted the duck. He said it looks like a mallard because it has a ring around its neck.
Courtney said: “We showed it to another ultrasound tech who said she had never seen anything like it and had no idea what it was. They’re all stumped as to what the ‘duck’ could be.”
But it was a spiritualist who suggested that Laura might not have truly been alone in the womb.
