When I had my scan last week it was mentioned at the scan and I was told it's fine and it will be checked again at the 20 week scan, I had my letter to say that I was low risk etc and it did mention that the Amniotic fluid/sac size appears subjectively small compared to fetus size, It's now playing on my mind a little bit.. and just wondering if any one else has had this problem? What was the outcome?
I have been looking at people's scan's on fb and they have massive amounts of fluid around where as ours appears to be very small I was 14 weeks at my 12 week scan!

It's good that you've been classed as low risk and that everything else seems fine.
If you're at all worried you should call your mw and ask her to explain - worry isn't good for you or baby so hopefully she can put your mind at rest xx

CC, your comment about scan pics made me go and look at 2 people on my FB who have had cause to post 12 wk scans in last couple months, they both look very snug actually, one much more than yours. Glad the letter said low risk. Definitely worth speaking to the midwife and getting updated from the horse's mouth - so to speak!!

I actually looked at mine and thought well I am actually 2 weeks more than most at 12 weeks so maybe he/she was just snug and hope that it grows soon will mention it at my next appointment
On one picture it looks like there's a bit of room around then on the other it doesn't strange really but ty for replying counter x
