If you think that video with the two young lasses and one beverage container is the most disturbing thing on the internet, you have clearly not seen the video below.* During a chat last evening outside of my husband’s newspaper, his colleague Mike–who recently welcomed his second adorable offspring into the world–mentioned that you can see a baby moving in the mother’s stomach near the end of pregnancy. Now, I assumed that he meant there’s an occasionally faintly visible tappa tappa tappa or something. But no, he meant a full-on, undulating belly sea sent roiling by the eight pound, six ounce Loch Ness Monster inside. If I thought I was freaked out standing there on the sidewalk I had another thing coming when I got home. Specifically, I had YouTube coming.
This is just one of many horrifying results when you search “baby moving in stomach.” The miracle of life never looked so utterly creepy.
