hi chick, When i went for my first scan at 9 weeks, you could only just see a tiny little bean shaped thing and it only measured about 1/2 inch. Im no doctor but Im sure I am safe to say there is a baby there if they found your placenta, maybe it is just a little too early to see anything. Good luck with your next scan and try not to worry too much xxx
