I am 28 weeks with my first baby and i noticed that my midwife has recorded that I have anterior placenta aka low lyin placenta but she never told me about it. So after looking online i see that ill prob have to have a section. I cant believe they havent told me about this problem. Im super worried now. Ive have no bleeding at all and everything else seems to be normal.
I have an appointment in 2 weeks, do u think I should phone them tomorrow and ask them what is going on or do you think the two weeks wait wont make any difference???

In response to the last post I wanted to say that low lying placenta moves for 9/10 cases which is why they don't want to worry you.
It is generally if they suspect is has gone too deep into the womb (palcenta accreta - really rare) that they worry. Otherwise it is a c section. Anterior can make it slightly more tricky.
They monitor ladies with previous c sections a bit more closely because the old scar is a 'weak point' in the uterus and so is more prone to the placenta invading too deeply which is the accreta.
I had low lying in my last pregnancy and it moved fine. Honestly most do.
