I was wondering if anyone else in our DDC has a low-lying placenta confirmed at this stage of pregnancy (approx 18-22 weeks?).
In my 19 week scan, that was my result - measured 1.8 cm away from the cervical opening - and posterior, which according to my midwife makes it a little less likely to move up.
I've read a lot already - there are other threads here - and online, and it seems that many of them just simply grow upwards and stretch with the uterus and by 30+ weeks they are well out of the way. In fact, I just read somewhere that if the placenta is NOT covering the opening at 20 weeks, then it almost certainly will NOT be a problem later.
BUT - I thought I'd add this thread just in case my own doesn't resolve...and if there are other mama's that have recently found out about their non-perfectly positioned placenta's and wanted to share experiences (or anyone passing by as well of course!)
I have to go back and see what is happening with it, via a 32 week scan (approx 3 months away for me). Am hoping for it to resolve and move up - because partial placenta previa would, it seems, massively get in the way of any chance of a vaginal birth. C-section all the way in that scenario, for everyone's wellbeing.
(Edit to add: If anyone knows where there might be any stats on how many of them resolve by full term, having been spotted around this time...that would be interesting to read!)
Best to all,Grover
