Certain things or events leave you either shocked or confused. Some raise far more questions of what really goes on around us that we are unaware of. Some are so real that even scientist are lost of words to describe them. This one is definitely one of them. Enjoy it.

A spiritualist suggested that the baby could have had an animal spirit guide alongside her in the womb
Quackers: The last thing you’d expect to see in your scan
What will my baby look like? Will it be a boy or a girl? Is she or he healthy? All of these questions run through your head on the day of your ultrasound. But 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.

“All our family and friends thought it was really funny and they bought her lots of duck toys.”The ‘duck’ didn’t just surprise Courtney and her husband – medics were stumped, too.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.

“We also mentioned it to a spiritualist who said some people have animal spirit guides and maybe Laura’s is a duck. Not sure if I believe in all that but its a lovely idea.”
When Laura was born, she was rushed straight to the NICU with breathing difficulties but, after five days, she pulled through. She’s now a healthy, happy two-year-old.
