A placenta moves when the uturus grows. It's impossible to say at this stage.

Hey.. I honestly don't know if you can tell at this stage, 20 week scan is when they check this as part of routine checks. Mine has been flagged from my 20week scan as low and they will scan again at 33 weeks.. Even then they told me not to be concerned as 90% move away as your uterus grows as PP said.

Is there something making you think yours is low?

It was only because baby doesn't look like has much space but maybe as not lying flat...on other scans I have seen there is space above babies head xx

I don't want to attach my 12 week scan but even with me having a low placenta confirmed at the 20 week scan I seem to have space around baby in the womb but I really don't know if that's a sign of the low placenta or not!? It could be that you have an anterior placenta? (placenta to the front) Did you check your notes to see if they had written anything?
Sorry I'm not much help! But if they didn't mention anything I would try to not worry xx
