Twins Fight In Womb!

Woah!

We've heard of sibling rivalries, but this one takes the cake!

An MRI video has captured a pair of fetuses literally fighting each other!

The "cinematic MRI" allows doctors and, if it is uploaded, any internet user to witness twins vie for space in utero.

And these two are seriously going at it!

We hope these eventual babes get along better in their baby room than they do in their mother's womb.

Women Can Treat Cancer During Pregnancy

Filed under: CancerPregnant

Preg cancer

Here is some good news for women facing bad news. Studies are finding that pregnant women fighting cancer can undergo treatment without any harm to their unborn child.

After assessing 70 children exposed to chemotherapy in the womb, a Belgian study has found that they developed just like any other child.

It's a good thing this research was carried out too because some doctors recommend terminating the pregnancy if the mother had to undergo cancer treatment, as study author Dr. Frederic Amant explained:

"Many (doctors) aren’t keen to give chemotherapy to pregnant women and may even recommend termination. But treating a pregnant woman with cancer doesn’t have to be so different from treating a cancer patient who isn’t pregnant.”

In the case a mother-to-be is diagnosed with cancer, the study found chemotherapy is possible during the first trimester while using ultrasounds to monitor the baby's development.

The study suggests radiation therapy is best done in the first two trimesters, as the baby is small enough to be covered with a lead blanket.

"These data don’t say that chemotherapy is completely safe, but the baby is better off being in (the mother) as long as possible,” added obstetric physician Dr. Catherine Nelson-Piercy.

Woman To Have Her Own Womb Transplanted Into Her Daughter!

Filed under: Baby BlabberInspiration

Just imagine if this works!

Check out the video (above) in which brave mother Eva Ottosson speaks about her plans to have her womb transplanted into her daughter.

If successful, Eva will become the first woman in the world to ever have a working womb transplanted into someone else's body.

We've heard that this procedure has happened once before, but unfortunately the womb didn't take.

We wish Eva and her daughter the best of luck! We'll be crossing our fingers, legs, toes, etc that the transplant is a success!

What do u think about this? Would U give up your womb so a loved one could have a baby?
