That isn't the placenta. I'm not sure what it is, though. Blood vessels?

I'm pretty sure that's the placenta.
I haven't got to this part of my schooling yet, but from my own experience I'd say that is what it is.

I recognized it from a diagram and had to search out where I saw it...but finally found it. I saw it in a real ultrasound picture too somewhere recently, but could only find this one below. If you are talking about the line under the baby, the black on the outside edge is just the uterine cavity and the part on the top side is the sac. It looks like this picture...
