Lateral placenta, anyone, anyone?

Bit of a random one. I'd been having a lot of pulling and tugging on my left side in early pregnancy and asked my sonographer at the 20 week scan where the placenta is, and it's left lateral, with some bits wrapped around my front and some my back. Anyone else had this? I had an anterior with DS and really didn't want that again as I wondered if it stopped him from turning into a birthable position, but I've never heard of a sideways one. Was hopeing for a nice boring posterior one. I have noticed I don't like sleeping on the hallowed left side because I can feel it pulsing and its unnerving but did anyone else have any issues with a lateral placenta? Thanks

Oh I have just posted something very similar. My baby's placenta is left lateral. I don't feel any different to when I was pg with DD but was wondering if this meant another OP baby for me.
