Scans show foetuses yawn in the womb

6 posts in this topic

Spending six months in the womb is evidently a tedious business - so it perhaps comes as no surprise that scientists have discovered that foetuses yawn.

Images of foetuses appearing to yawn have in the past have sparked a fierce debate between scientists, with some claiming that the developing babies were simply opening and closing their mouths.

A new study, which uses high resolution ultrasound images, claims to prove that theory wrong.

A fetus will do all kinds of things in the womb, kick, suck its thumb so this really isn't surprising.

Well, i suppose they would do. It must be rather boring. There's not very much you can do, is there. :santa:

It would be nice to have stem cells merge into a Wii in the womb or something, so the baby can be occupied.

But nope! Just a boring old place in there. :passifier:

In one of his earlier comedy routines Bill Cosby said he tried to get his wife to swallow a basketball so the kid could have something to do in there...

Not much to do except suck your thumb, kick, write your name on the wall and make up dirty limericks...
