Hi, am pregnant and completed 16 months and my placenta is low lying .
Is this to worry or this can be normal with some precaution?

Thanks for posting your query.

Guess you are 16 weeks pregnant.
At 16 weeks, low lying placenta is nothing to worry about.
As pregnancy advances, the placenta moves upwards.

Do you have any symptoms of bleeding or spotting per vagina?

Waiting for your reply.
