Is it just me or does the baby have very long legs for 12 weeks 5 days?

No it looks normal to me. It probably looks longer because there is no chubby fat around it and you are only seeing bone.

In comparison to it's body? Maybe?
You do know it's only about 10-12 cm long at the moment!!
I think it perhap just usual to see the legs extended like that.
I'm quite sure it's going to be a fabulous baby!!
Congrats.

Looks pretty normal to me.

How cute

Agree with rude elf. If you think about it the baby's legs are in proportion to its body :-) don't worry, he/she looks perfect booth of mine looked like king prawns at 12 weeks but turned out fine

Looka just fine...Ours had his legs stretched out like that at 12w scan and everything was perfect at 20w scan (now 28w) smile

Are you and dh tall? Are you expecting a long-legged baby? ;)

I'm 5 ft 3 but he is 6 ft 6 so who knows! Lol

We had a long legged baby who looked just like this on his 12 week scan. I'm 5ft3, DH 6ft2. DS was 7lb 12 when he was born at 39 weeks- everyone was surprised by his weight but I think it was down to his length. We're waiting to see how long his sister will be- I'm 34 weeks now.

I thought this too at my first scan! I mentioned it to the sonographer and she said it is down to proportions etc, as pp have said.
