what week does the placenta attach?


I am 9.5 weeks pregnant and am having an almost symptomless pregnancy so far. but on friday i had two sudden v painful jolts of pain. they were like "electrical" cramps, really wierd. i also broke out in spots which are only clearing up today, like teenage acne i look god awful!!!
Was wondering with the cramps if that could have been the placenta attaching itself to the uterine wall. any ideas on this i cant find any decent info??
thanks and happy pregnancies to you all xxxxx

the placenta takes over the hormone stuff during the 9th week and the 12th week, as for developing i know it doesn't develop with the embryo but not long after but couldnt say for sure when.

Thats why some women notice morning sickness lessens around 12 weeks

9th week you still have the yolk sac to feed baby I think

Week 12 is when your hormones dont need to do all the work as the placenta takes over;o

I had a scan at 8 weeks 4 days and the yolk sac was still there to feed the baby. The sonographer said that she noticed a thickening of my uterus which was likely to be the placenta growing. I too wondered when it took over as even though i've now see a heartbeat i'm worrying that the placenta will take over properly. Is it fully functional by the 12 week scan?

I was told by week 13 the baby is getting all nourishment from the placenta, so I guess the placenta is developing over the couple of weeks before?

No you're right I since looked it up and it says it develops with the baby but starts to take over the nourishment at week 13

When I had my 12 week scan the report I got after it said my placenta was properly formed so I guess they must see somethin on the screen!
