Please explain this scan pic to me! Its my sister-in-laws 12 week scan & I can see where the baby is, but what's the bit in the middle? Why does it all look a bit odd?

Does she have an odd shaped uterus?

Not that I'm aware of! I'd ask her myself but communication is a bit limited since she can't 'tolerate' children - mine in particular so only really talk to my brother. Pregnancy a bit of a shock to say the least!

Could it be her uterus is the banana shaped bit where the baby is, the white blob in the middle is muscle and the other black round area is her full bladder?
The sonographer could have zoomed in!

No clue :) Could it be a split uterus, or does that look different?

It could be a full bladder, it's just not zoomed in.
And bloody hell, I saw the picture before I read the text and thought you were having another!!!

my guess is its the uterus and the bladder. at my 12 week she showed me the full bladder right next to the uterus!

:) Sorry **Pip** not my turn again just yet . . . but I'm not saying never either ;)

Looks like uterus and full bladder to me. I think people expect scan pics from the front but this looks like a side view

It looks like its been taken from her side rather than her tummy IYSWIM.

As the nurse pushes your tummy about it can cause all sorts of weird and wonderful shapes on the screen. I wouldn't worry about it. If something was abnormal they would have told you.
