Placenta posterior low lying Grade 0

Hi, just want to ask some help/advice of the position of my placenta. When I was 19 weeks and 2 days pregnant, I had my ultrasound and the results says that the posterior of my placenta was low lying Grade 0. What does it mean? Now, I'm 7 months pregnant and planning to have another ultrasound . Is it possible that my placenta will go to it's proper place? Thanks and have a good day!

Hi, and thanks for your query on eHealth forum!

A low-lying placenta grade 0 is common in first trimester pregnancy. However, in only less than 5% cases, this becomes placenta previa, and can create problems with vaginal delivery. So at 7th month ultrasound there is a very good chance that the placenta has gone back to it normal position.
Please consult your healthcare provider for further guidance.
