The mother said she had to fight back tears as she saw what was happening.
Meghan Merriott had gone for her 12 week ultrasound with her husband Robert Cooper, when the doctor noticed something strange on the screen.
Robert is a former marine, and in the image the baby can clearly be seen saluting its parents!

The baby had been sleeping when they had started the ultrasound, and several attempts to wake the baby to take the desired photo were unsuccessful. However, the baby suddenly lifted its little arm up towards its head before dropping it promptly back down again.
Meghan had had to fight to hold back her tears of joy at the beautiful moment. Everyone in the room - including Meghan's 3 year old son - were touched by the sweet moment.
Meghan and Robert have not yet announced the baby's gender, which they plan to do at a reveal party.
Watch the video below.
What a wonderful moment for the little family!
