low lying placenta

i am 19weeks 4days now. can feel flickering feeling, gyn says baby is kicking and can alrd start feeling it. everything is normal and baby is healthy but i have a low placenta. had to be bedrest. no long distance and heavy lifting. researched about it. but still feel so scared. for past low placenta mummys, did ur placenta move up and no csect? im just worried abt csect, heard that its painful.

at week 24 my gynae told me that my placenta was on the low side. he told me not to worry as it might moved up. so yes.. it did move up on week 32. I was in labour ward for 19hours.. i was on induce labour but baby head was too big and my cervix is kinda small.. so need to do emergency c-sect. i opt for half body.. epidural. i only felt people pushing the baby out but it waa not painful. :)

Hey mummy! I don't really have any advice on this because I didn't have this issue (or at least not that I recall oops), but I've seen many mummies who have gotten over this in the later part of the pregnancy because it just moves on its own :) Don't worry too much on it, as long as your baby is healthy and everything else is fine - just give it some time because you're only halfway there!

Hi there! I also don’t have any experience with this. But I think as long as you follow doctor’s advice, everything should be fine. I’m so happy to hear about the baby kicking! That’s always a good sign. Pregnancy is the time to take things easy and be a Queen at home! Just enjoy your bed rest and don’t worry too much.
