normally as the gestational age progresses most of the placenta will move upwards which is called as migration of placenta,
so you can wait further it may happen in your case also,
choroid plexus cyst is small as per your details, it may regress soon,
now what you can do it following the growth of the baby and placental position and the cyst with regualr visits and ultrasound examinations and taking folic acid supplements regularly.
take care.
