Most expectant mothers hope medics will reassure them about their baby's health when they go for their routine scan.
But Marie Boswell's baby boy wanted to tell his mummy himself that he was doing fine in her tummy.
As this amazing picture shows, the little fellow gave Miss Boswell the thumbs up when she went for her 20-week check.
The 35-year-old said she couldn't stop laughing when the picture of her son came up on the screen at Wythenshawe Hospital, Manchester.
'It was really funny, I went to the scan with my friend and my mum and we were all just laughing,' she said.' He was giving us the thumbs up, it was just so clear. We couldn't believe it.
'I have big hands, but nothing on the scale of his - he looks like he's wearing boxing gloves. We're thinking he might make a good goalkeeper.
Gerry Jackson, lead sonographer at Wythenshawe Hospital, said it was rare for scans to produce such clear images for expectant mothers.
'It is very unusual to see a baby's thumbs so clearly, but it is lovely we have been able to get such a clear image for this lady,'' Mr Jackson said.
'The new scanners we use do give a really clear picture and we have to look at the hands as part of the national screening guidelines - as this scan shows we do see the fingers from time to time.'Source
