I understand your anxiety.If the distance between the internal os of the cervix and the placenta is within 2- 5cm distance,it is called low lying placenta.the placenta usually migrates upward as the pregnancy grows in the case of anterior placenta.In your case the placenta which was encroaching the os has gone up to some extend that is more than 2 cm from the os.If the baby's growth is adequate,if you go into spontaneous labour,If the baby's head is down,You can undergo a normal labour under strict supervision with a double set up with arrangements ready for emergency Caesarean.The baby's head will press on the placenta and reduce the bleeding during labour.Labour will not be induced,only if you get into spontaneous labour normal delivery will be possible
