I'm not supposed to worry, but I'm bummed. I don't want for my birth plans to get messed up. Anyone else in the same (or worse?) boat?
I would try not to stress about it. I've never heard of a placenta deciding to move closer or over the cervix when it wasn't already covering part of it from the start.

I know you're both right -- there's little reason to worry. Odds are something like 95% that the placenta will move up, but the mw did say there is a slight chance it could move down.
It's a surprise because there was never anything even remotely high risk about my first pregnancy, and yet I worried all the time. I haven't been worrying much at all with this one, and then this happens.
But, it will be fine. I know it will.
Thanks for the support
I had a similar diagnosis at my 18 week scan. Low lying- possible partial previa.
I had a 28 week scan and it was completely up and out of the way.
Honestly, it seems like such a long time ago and like not a big deal at all now that I'm well past it. But I remember it stressing me out at the time.
But chances are almost for sure that it'll move.

I've read that pregnancy belts can encourage a low placenta to move upwards.

I had a partial previa in my 3rd pregnancy. It was covering about 1/2 my cervix at 12 weeks, and it was discovered because I had some copious spotting after sex. So, I went on pelvic rest. At the 20 week, it was low-lying, but had moved off the cervix, and by I think 28 weeks, it was totally up high and no longer an issue. I was quite concerned, as well. I pray everything straightens right up for you in that regard!

I had to postpone a trip overseas just in case--the midwife said I wouldn't want to be stuck on a 12 hour flight with placenta previa. I also really hope it doesn't mess up a natural birth, but I'm going to try not to worry about it until I have to.
Btw, I had the same situation with my very first pregnancy, but it resolved itself.
