You Won't Know Whether to Laugh or Cry Over What This 'Terrifying' Ultrasound Captured

Baby's sonogram
Getting a first glimpse of your unborn baby is an exciting pregnancy milestone for many parents. Sometimes these ultrasounds give memorable first-looks to save for the baby book or send to loved ones. But some parents think they see more than they originally bargained for. From angels and demons to ghosts, the things folks see in ultrasounds can appear pretty creepy. However, what Sharni Turner saw staring back at her is hilarious and borderline terrifying all at the same time.

  • The mom from Australia shared the unexpected ultrasound view on Twitter, and luckily she has a sense of humor.

    Sharni commented that she was nervous at first before her 18-week scan, but with the way things ended up turning out, it was just too funny not to share. "My ultrasound technician decided to do a front face image of my baby and it was the most terrifying thing I've ever seen in my f*ckiNG LIFE," she tweeted.

  • Every little one is precious, but you have to admit, that photo is ... something.

    Although not everyone shared Sharni's sense of humor and instead posted mean comments about her baby's developing skull, many posted their own sonograms as reassurance not to stress over the angle. 

  • Although it's still early in the pregnancy, one user joked with Mom about already noticing a striking resemblance.

    "😂 I promise my baby won't destroy the world," Sharni commented on Twitter.
