Hi, I have gone through your question and understand your concerns. The low lying placenta in early pregnancy usually migrates upwards as the pregnancy advances. The ultrasound at 37 weeks in case of your sister shows the the same, the placenta is shifted upwards. This is completely normal. She can have a vaginal delivery.
Her expected date of delivery is 17 th July 2011.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
Wishing you good health.
