The Doctors share a freaky image of an MRI scan of an in-utero baby that resembles an alien from the 1996 film “Mars Attacks!” While the resemblance is uncanny, there’s nothing to worry about. Baby Lucas was born healthy and non-alien-like!
OB/GYN Dr. Nita Landry addresses the importance of getting an ultrasound early in a woman’s pregnancy. Ideally, in a normal pregnancy, a woman should have one during the first trimester and then the second around 18-22 weeks. This gives the woman her dating as well as allows doctors to look for any congenital issues while in utero.
Discovering these potential problems early on is so important because if it cannot be addressed prior to birth, this will allow parents to find the proper specialist or doctors to be there when the baby is delivered.

In the case of this alien ultrasound, an MRI is not typical but was done because they had thought there was fluid around the baby’s brain. Luckily, it was just an interesting way it came up on the imaging but Lucas is now cute as can be!
