Low lying placenta... Who has it, who's has gone up to the proper spot, who has had to have a c-sec because of it?
I'm 19.4 weeks along, had my scan yesterday and the technician said that's what I had going on at the mo... Needa re-scan at 30 to see if it has changed... But what if it doesn't?

Mine hadn't moved far enough at 32 weeks and they booked me for a cs. I fought hard and got induced 2 days before the cs date. Complication free birth, no tearing or excess blood loss at all.

With my last I still had a low lying placenta at an extra 30 week scan but paid to have an extra one at 36 weeks and it had moved.

I hope its all ok, and moves, I'd like to not have a c-sec if I can help it!

Mine was 0.5cm away from my opening it moved completely out of the way within 4 weeks. ( I had some bleeding at 24 weeks so got re scanned) And found it was not longer a problem.

I'm about 8 weeks and even though it's quite early I was told mine is and they want to monitor me for the next two weeks as I was experiencing heavy bleeding... They did say its not a huge worry though and, it doesn't "move" it kind of finds it's way up as it grows if that makes sense

I was told the same thing at my 12 wk us except I was told mine was already sitting over the cervix ... I go for my 20 wk us next week so will see how things have evolved. They have already said I will need us at 32 and 34 wks
I feel quite petrified of a cs ...I have already had two smooth natural child births and had anticipated this would how it would go again. I think it is mostly the recovery and not beig able to drive for 6 wks that is freaking me out ... I have 2 kids in kinder next year so not sure how I will get them there and home!
At the end of the day I will do whatever is safest for baby AND me

83% of LL placentas move up and away from the cervix, there is another thread which has lots of replies in it, I'll see if I can find it..
