Wait until you see this: The case of the dancing pregnant belly

She is only the fifth pregnant woman on record to experience the movement disorder, characterised by involuntary oscillations of the abdominal wall.

As if going through labour was not enough, a young woman had to endure hours of belly dancer’s dyskinesia while heavily pregnant, in a case reported by doctors in Ethiopia.

The rarely encountered movement disorder is characterised by waving or oscillating movement of the abdomen caused by rhythmic, or semi-rhythmic, involuntary contractions of the diaphragm, they say.
