Welcome to HCM.

Low lying placenta at 24 weeks, usually goes up and by the time of delivery it should be of no problem. As for LUCS, if the placenta is anterior and extends into the lower segment at term, then the obstetrician will have to cut through the placenta to reach the baby. You do not have to worry about these things, let your doctor do the worrying. You should maintain a Positive attitude that every thing is going to be alright, and in all likely hood you will have no problem and will be a proud mother of a healthy child.

Wish you all the best.
