    Any idea when you would have a c-section if a low lying placenta hasn't moved by the 34 week scan?

    I know that 90% or something move by then but just curious :) xx

    Im looking at having a planned c-section (for a different reason) and that will be at 38 weeks, I think generally planned ones are done at 38 or 39 weeks as they dont want you to go into labour naturally xx

    I was told I would have one a week before my due date if my placenta hadnt moved (which it did at about 34 - 36 weeks). Even then they will scan you the day before and if the placenta has moved they will let you go for a natural birth...
