Anyone else had this ? what are the chances of it moving if at all ? I'm 24 weeks pregnant, had my scan last week and they told me the placenta is low and I have to have another scan at 32 weeks before they'll decide anything, but that was all they'd tell me really, have a midwife appt next week so will ask her more questions but just wondered if anyone else has experience of this and what happened ?
i'm 22 weeks and have low placenta, which, like you, they're going to check at next scan. They said that in 90% of cases it rises anyway so they weren't very worried -which is probably why they didn't say much more to you. I asked on MN whether a low placenta (if it does stay low) automatically means a caesarean delivery, but all the answers came back, No, unless it is covering the exit hole.
Sorry I'm not an expert! But i hope that helps. Your placenta (and mine!) could do anything between now and the next scan, so best not to worry about it now. x
Showed at 20 week scan. Seem to remember going back about five or six weeks later and, as predicted, it had moved up and was no longer low! I think it's quite common and even if it hasn't moved by the nest time you go, it might still move after that. Plenty of time, please don't worry!
