    Hi everyone,

    Please can you put my mind at rest. I had a 17 week scan yesterday. Baby is fine and doing really well but I have been told that I have a low placenta. I have had one previous birth a year ago and that was c-section due to baby not engaging....:dohh:

    The scanner said not to worry as this is quite common at this stage and there is every chance that it will move as my bump grows.

    Has any one else been told this and what was the out come if you had the same?

    Thanks in advance

    Its very common at this stage, and think about how much your uterus is going to expand - now imagine how that will move the placenta up and round and away from the cervix - nothing to worry about at this stage at all honey. They'll keep an eye on it for you and if it stays where it is they'll consider a c-section. Certainly wouldnt worry about it yet though.

    I was told exactly the same at 16 weeks. It will more than likely move up as the baby grows. Obviously I don't know the outcome yet, but I'm not going to worry about it. A friend was told the same thing and her placenta was normal by 28 weeks.

    Ah thanks for that.

    Why do we worry so much???? I just want a natural birth so much for this one as it may be my last baby. I want to feel the pain ha ha.

    I will try not to worry..........
