    With DD, at 20 weeks mine was 0.5cm from the opening. At 32 weeks it was 5cm away and far enough away for a normal delivery (I imagine it moved further by the time 41 weeks rolled around).

    Default Low lying placenta

    Picture a deflated balloon (uterus). If you stick something (placenta) right next to the bit that you put in your mouth, then blow it up, the "thing" you stuck on changes position as the balloon "grows". This is what happens in about 99% of cases of low lying placenta according to my midwife.
    This almost word for word, mine was 2cm from OS

    Apparently it had to be at least 2cms away.

    Default Low lying placenta

    Hi Glittertg

    I have been told by professionals most low lying placentas move in time for a natural delivery. Next time you see your OB ask for more information.

    At my 20 week scan they found my Placenta completely covering the cervix by 4cms, I have a grade 4 Placenta Previa.

    However because mine is a Grade 4, I was told it was highly unlikely to move at 20 weeks and it hasn't at 32 weeks.

    I will be admitted at 34 weeks and my baby will be delivered by C/S at 37 weeks. Try not to stress, you are in good hands.

    Default Low lying placenta

    I was told I had a low lying placenta at 19 weeks and was told that my partner and I could not be intimate... I had another scan at 29 weeks and found that it had moved and all is now good!

    You can't do anything other than just keep bub happy until you have your next scan. Good luck! Don't stress it's too early to do that.

    After my 12 week scan, my placenta is anterior, and even though it's super early, I've been told no exertion at all......It's only a precaution but fingers crossed it all works out like it has for many of you

    My 18 week scan showed PP Cat 4 and I still have Cat 4. Im now 35 weeks and just had my first beed so in hospital for the weekend on steriods to help babys lungs mature just in case. But this is rare... most placentas move out the way in time for vaginal birth but if it doesnt then a c section is not the worst thing in the world. Good luck.

    I had a low lying placenta at the 20 week ultrasound but when it came time for the 32 (or was it 34) week ultrasound I was given the all clear for a natural birth. Problems during labour meant that I had to have a c-section but that's okay. Healthy baby and healthy mum! You'll probably be okay but it's good to be prepared for all scenarios.

    At my 20wk ultrasound i was told i had a low lying placenta that would need a follow up at 32wks to see the position..
    I am really nervous the doctor didn't go into too much detail about it. So i am a little confused.
    Sent from my GT-I9100 using BubHub
    Your in the same boat as me.
    Found out on Friday that I have this but they told me not to worry about it, but that I will need another scan around 30-32 weeks. This is when they will let you know if it's corrected itself or not.
    Mainly the only difference I have found is having to have a c section rather than a natural birth. And generally you shouldn't have sex and only do light exercise.

    Default Low lying placenta

    I just found out I've got grade 2 PP today after a scary bleed. Not really been given any instructions on abstinence or bed rest just not to over do it and if I get more bleeding go to hospital. I'm not feeling too worried at this point just hoping I'm not going to get any more bleeding.
