well my docter told me i have a low laying placenta...and she didnt really explain it to me but she said we might have to do a c section. does anyone have any idea what a low laying placenta means?

My doctor told me the same thing. Basically it means that your placenta is about 2 centimeters away from your cervix. Because the placenta is so close to the opening of the cervix it could cause you to go into labor early or could cause bleeding. My doc told me not to worry about it, that most of the time as your stomach gets bigger the placenta starts to move up away from the cervix. How far along are you? The last ultrasound I had showed that the doc was right and that my placenta had moved up. Good Luck!
