I had my u/s done at 21 weeks and it showed that my placenta was very low, but that it was not covering my cervix. I have not been back to my MW yet. I figured if it was something she was worried about she would call me. Does this mean anything right now. The U/S tech did not say much.

from what i understand, it's almost certain to be a non-issue by the time of the birth if it's not covering the cervix now. i also think your mw would have called by now if it looked problematic. good luck!

Eh, it's still early. Even if it were covering your cervix you have a while for it to grow and move away from the cervix, but since it's not covering the cervix I'm sure your MW isn't the least bit concerned.

Exactly what the other two said - there's time for movement and if you MW was worried about it she would have let you know

It'll almost definitely move up and since it's a low-lying placenta (near the cervix) and not covering the cervix (placenta previa) there's nothing to worry about anyway.

Ditto the others. Mine stayed low lying throughout my pg and neither my MW or the OB i saw for shadow care had any concerns since it wasn't covering the cervix.

You know whats odd though - there seem to be "trends" in "issues". for a while there - EVERYONE I knew was dx'd with "low fluid". Then it was pre-e or PIH, and now its "low lying placenta".

I've noticed that too. One of the girls in my DDC had a previa so her OB scheduled a section (at like 20some odd weeks). Then when he found that her previa was gone he said, oh well we've already got you scheduled, so they went ahead with the section I swear it's all a conspiracy.

Ditto the others - if it moves, it's most likely move up - not down to cover the cervix. My bet would be that everything is just fine, and I wouldn't worry about it.
