Peanut in the Placenta

We had our 12 week scan today and everything is a-okay! Yipeee!

This is Peanut in the standard ultrasound i had on Tuesday at my doctors office. Looks like a full baby now, not just a little Peanut! It is 6.6cm long!

This is Peanut from todays high-res 3D 12 week scan at the ultrasound clinic. Just hanging around in my placenta! Amazing! Peanut is very active, squirming around. I have been told i have an anterior placenta - so Peanut has the placenta sack a different way then most (thats me - a little bit different) but thats perfectly fine, it just may mean i don't feel kicking till a little bit later, but i can already feel some little flutters!

Everything is 100 % normal, fingers crossed it stays that way for the next 6 months..

Hey Katy, congratulations on reaching the 12 week milestone!!!

I had an anterior placenta too when I was pregnant with my biggest and it didn't make any difference to feeling movement for me, it was just in different spots rather than all at the front.

Yay for you, enjoy!!!

I am beyond excited for you, Katy! Peanut is already adorable :)

Are you going to find out the sex of the baby? Will you get another ultrasound at 20 weeks? That is usually when I got mine, and I couldn't stand not knowing. Some of my friends wanted to be surprised, but not me, I wanted to plan :)

Hope you're feeling well; you need to post some pictures of you soon! I wanna see a baby bump!

YAY!!!!! I am so happy for you!!! Your little peanut is looking good! Good luck with your pregnancy journey. Mine is coming to an end and for that I am very thankful. But it was definitely a fun ride... most of the time!

Glad everything's going well for you. I'm looking forward to my 19 week ultrasounds and extensive exam in less than two weeks -- and we'll get to find out the sex, hopefully!

Are you starting to feel pretty good? I am feeling MUCH better! Helllooo second trimester. I am so glad to see you!
