my first ultrasound pic looked kind of like that - the tech told me it was the yolk sack.

I agree, it'll be the yolk sac. It starts disappearing soon as the placenta takes over instead. I had a scan about then too, and all I could see was a blob. The 12 week scan will look much more like a baby.

No idea, but honestly I wouldn't worry right now. If it was the anatomy scan done between 4 and 5 months maybe because everything is formed at that point, but right now your baby is smaller than a grape.

It's a bit hard to see. How far along are you? If the technician said everything looked great I wouldn't worry.

No I was so excited about seeing my baby that I didn't even notice it till after we got home. The ultrasound technician said everything looked great at the ultrasound. And I was just gonna ask my Dr at my next appointment on Dec 12 but I just can't wait.
