Hello there,
Thanks for writing to us.
The placenta which is anterior and 3.7cm from os at 28weeks is less likely to be troublesome.
As you dont have any complaints, only routine antenatal care is all that is needed.
A follow up 3 rd trimester scan will guide you further.
Hope this is helpful to you,
Dr. Mrs. Sumeet Baheti
