Mum-to-be Donna Sayer was delighted with her latest pregnancy ultrasound scan – which showed her unborn baby giving her the thumbs up.

Worried Donna had been called in for another ultrasound scan two weeks after her 20-week scan. Luckily all was well and the baby gave Donna and her partner, Simon Biscoe, a special sign of reassurance.

“It was as if the baby was trying to tell us that everything was fine,” said Donna to The Mirror.

Scans of babies sometimes appear to reveal them smiling, waving their arms around and even sucking their thumbs – see for yourself on our Fetal development: week 26 article.
