  1. Hello,Thanks for writing.At 20 weeks you are having low lying placenta.it is possible that as your pregnancy grows placenta go up so get a repeat ultrasound after 4 -6 weeks for placental location. If it goes up your problem is solved and you can have normal delivery but if it is still low then you have to take precautions and might undergo Caesarean at term.write me if you have any other problem.till then all the best.
