This is a rather disturbing story: Boy had fetus in stomach

Doctors in Bangladesh say they have removed a long-dead foetus (that is ‘fetus’ for us American English speakers) from the abdomen of a teenage boy who was complaining of stomach pains.

Eek eek! I guess the locals were told that a boy gave birth and they all rushed to the hospital to see.

That reminds me of a story I heard a long time ago about an old woman who went to the doctor complaining of abdominal pain and supposedly they found she had been carrying around the skeleton of a near term fetus for a decade.

Jeez – I hope I don’t come down with any abdominal pains anytime soon – sheesh!

    I saw this awesome photo of this calcified fetus that had been pulled out of some women who had been carrying it around for at least five or ten years. The doctors thought it was some kind of kidney stone.
