Everyone wants to have mementos of their pregnancy.
So we document our journey by making belly casts, taking plenty of pictures, framing our ultrasounds, videotaping, writing diaries and books.
I will even confess that with my first baby, I saved something with the best of intentions -- a memento gone bad! I saved my son's umbilical cord. Trust me, if you don't already know this, it stinks badly after a few days!
The market has just revealed a new eccentric keepsake. It's called "Shape of an Angel", which produces a 3D ultrasound -- but it's not just any 3D ultrasound.
An MRI scans your fetus and a tiny replica gets printed out in a 3D printer, hovering in mid-air and then encased in a see-through jewelry box!
Yep! Now your friends and family can walk in and see your fetus on display! Here's the "kicker," it only costs $1,230. We'll get two!
I can't imagine buying a miniature 3D replica of my fetus. Would you buy it? How did you document your pregnancy? Do you think this is cool, creepy or just a bit odd?
