I had a 3d at 12w6d and I saw my placenta right next to my baby! But what confuses me is, am I looking at a reversed picture of the baby? Or is what I am seeing the actual view? If it's the actual view, placenta is on right, if it's reversed however, it's on the left. I am so curious now!!! Anyone know the answer?

As it was done abdominally it will be reversed, so if pic shows placenta on the right, it actually means left so a girl.

I think it can be hard at 12 weeks to gather if it is right or left of womb though as they may zoom in so although it may look right, it may just be zoomed in to look like its to the right when in fact its just over the right of the left hand side of the womb if that makes sense........

Girls its not just R or L of pic, but you need to know where the cervix is in respect to the placenta to determine R or L. Then if it was trans abdominal it will be flipped Example: my 6 week u/s transvaginal

Hey ladies i am just popping over from 3rd tri because i saw this post. When i was in first tri. i was so obsessed about this theory. Well just a couple tips for you,

1. Don't try and figure it out from your ultrasound picture because things can be flipped sooo easily. I figured that one out after talking to my ultrasound tech.( you would need to ask the tech where it is located)

2. The placenta will move, My first ultrasound was at 6 weeks (on the right side then) 12 week (mid-line) and now at 39 weeks it's on the left.

3. I did find thou that ever time i used my doppler he was always on the right side and even now at 39 weeks he is always hanging out on the right side of my uterus.

4. The theory would be YOUR right or left. Anything medical is always from your left or your right

Yep, it moves! The article states the theory is only accurate for scans done between 6-8 weeks.

I was told at my 6 week scan that the placenta doesnt develope that early and that the yolk sack does the job of the placenta, and told the same at 8 week scan then at 11 week scan she said it was starting to develop but to early to see and that I would see it at my 13 week scan, so I didn't have a placenta at 6 weeks nevermind what side it was on, lol!

If you read it, you arent actually looking for the placenta, you're looking for the DR of the chronic vili, which is where the placenta will first form. It shows up bright white on the u/s

Wow, Well I think when I go for my scan I will ask where it is, and then see, I suppose you never 100% know until they are born!

Im kind of obsessed with this theory too, when I was pregnant first time round it was right for me, and the thread that was around then was right for a lot of ladies, which is why Im pretty obsessed with it now!
