Unlikely: Previa: Placenta overlies the cervix/birth canal. Gr 1 means placenta is close, Gr 4 means it's directly overlying/blocking the baby's exit -- high chance of preterm labor & bleeding; you'd need a C/S at 36-37wks. More common in woman w/ hx of C/S & smoking. Not much you can do but wait. If dx'ed early, the uterus still grows/stretches and a placenta can migrate away even in 3rd tri.

If a placenta was low lying during one pregnancy does it mean it will be low lying again for the next?
I am 26 weeks pregnant and have low-Lying placenta, what causes this? is a risk for pregnancy loss or life? Thanks

This can continue to stay there and put you at risk for bleeding called placenta praevia. However sometimes the placenta corrects itself. Your doctor will likely check ultrasounds to ensure you will do well during pregnancy. Good luck. ...Read more

Is low lying placenta the same as placenta previa? At 28 weeks what are the risks/how dangerous is it? How will it affect rest of pregnancy and birth?
Not the same...: A low lying placenta is when it is close to the cervix, but not covering it like a previa does. The risk of either is bleeding, esp. Once in labor. But a low lying placenta is much more likely to move up the side of your uterus & out of the way prior to this. Your dr. Will follow this with serial ultrasounds until then. Probably smart to avoid intercourse & to report any bleeding until clear. ...Read more

25th week of first pregnancy and feeling baby kicks only in the pelvic/ pubic hairline region and sometimes in cervix/vagina. Not low lying placenta.
Baby kicks: Pregnant women will sense the fetal movements in a variety of ways. There is not a correct place to feel movement or an incorrect place. You will feel kicks and movements usually whereever the feet, elbows and arms are located inside of your uterus. The placental location does not change that. ...Read more
