    Default Placenta on cervix

    Just had my 20 week scan today and was told my placenta was on my cervix and will need a scan at 34weeks to see if it has moved.

    Has anyone had their placenta on/over their cervix at 20 weeks and had it move out of the way in time for birth? I really want to avoid a c section.

    No personal experience, but I hope it does move for you.

    Mine was a threatened one, so not covering my cervix. Mine moved out of the way. It is quite common for it to move as the baby and womb grows and stretches. I hope this is the case for you x

    Mine was low last time at 12 weeks but it moved by 20 weeks. Last time was anterior and this time is posterior

    Hey Hun, mine was low lying at 20 weeks scan and have had scans at 24 28 and having 32 scan internal and external next week. It hasn't moved at all and is growing into the cervix so a c-sec under a GA for me at 37wks. Totes didn't want this as I'd prefer labour naturally then this any day. If your carrying very low and really heavy most of the time it may not of moves at all but it depends on what grade they gave you, 1,2,3,4 4 being the worst. Hope it moves for you

    I have a scan in 2 weeks (at 30w6d) to see if it's moved.

    Hi Hun, mine was a grade 3/4 prévia. It didn't move out of the way. Was very temperamental and caused a few bleeds and an early c-section at 36+4. Hope yours behaves better x

    Fingers X it has moved for you. No one wants a c-sec, you can't do anything for 6wks !! It will drive me insane

    Can I ask why under a GA? Surely the placenta position doesn't effect you being able to have a spinal?

    Under a GA as it's also grown into the cervix not just cover it. So a lot more blood then usual (8 units on stand by as an in case), as when I had my son 9 yrs ago I lost a lot naturally with him and I went into shock. I've spoken in depth to my OB and the the OB that will be assisting and also one of the midwives that will be assisting and on my ward that day ( I work with her daughter and she has requested to be part of "the team"). I'm also on verge of a possible prolapse so have signed consent forms for a hysterectomy. My age has also been taken into account, 39. Basically it could get very messy, so GA for my safety and to get baby out faster.
