Brief Answer:
Repeat scan at 34 weeks

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand the concerns.
Usually, the placenta migrates upwards in the uterine cavity as the uterus enlarges with advancing gestation.
The low placenta in second trimester migrates upwards in 98% cases by 32-34 weeks.
Till then, intercourse and heavy work should be avoided to prevent any bleeding due to low lying placenta.
So, do not worry, and get a repeat scan at 34 weeks to confirm the diagnosis.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
