Well the baby is all good! All in normal range. I however, have a low lying placenta and have to be re-scanned at 32 weeks so still a bit worried - any advice re this out there - but told not to worry but............. X

I have a low lying placenta too, going back at 34 weeks for re scan. At the 20 week scan the sonographer said 9times out of 10 it will move out of the way as the uterus stretches upwards. Its only more of a concern if it is already covering the cervix at 20 weeks it has less chance of moving. I was a bit concerned at the time but now i think its quite common. Congratulations on a good scan!

No idea re the placenta but glad all is well

Yay glad all is ok with baby. I know 2 friends who had this at 20 weeks and it had moved by 32 weeks and caused no problems.

Ahhh thank you - I feel less worried now x

I was told that I had a low lying placenta and was rescanned at 36 weeks, by which time it had moved. I think in the vast majority of cases, it will move as the uterus expands and can be quite a common occurrence. Please don't worry about it x

Glad baby is all good.
I had a low lying placenta too. Rescanned at 36 weeks, and it had moved.
See, really common. Nothing to worry about.

Everyone i know who had a low-lying placenta, it had moved by the time the 30odd week rescan came around.

Firstly, glad the scan went ok and all is well with baby :)
I was told I had a low placenta at my 20 week scan, but not covering the cervix. I went for a 3d scan at 28 weeks and the lady checking me said it had already moved a bit and so by the time my next NHS scan (at 36 weeks) she was almost positive that it will have moved, so please don't worry x
