Scared =(

Today at my OB apt I was told that I need another ultrasound in 4 weeks because my placenta is too low. I guess it isnt over my cervix but at my first ultrasound it was on the right hand side of my uterus.

What does this mean?

Does it usually correct its self even if its moving from the right side to the front and down?

Has anyone had this and had a natural birth or does it usually mean C-Section.

Mine was low, but not covering my cervix. I was able to have a natural birth.

Sorry to hear this.  It sounds similar to what happened with my 3rd pregnancy when we were told that I had a low lying placenta.  They monitored it with a couple of extra ultrasounds and everything was ok.  I also FREAKED out when I heard this, however, it didn't affect the birth or pregnancy of my ds (other than a little more monitoring).  No c-section was needed and he was a healthy 8lb 6 oz little boy.  Hope this helps.  :)

Are u able to still have sex? My OB wasnt there (he has doing a section) so I didnt get a change to ask and the nurse couldnt say 100% which i understand.
