low lying placenta at 5 months gone
i went to my 5 month scan yesterday and i was told that i had low lying placenta but will need another scan and that i could have heavy bleeding later on and after pregnancy plus i might need a c section.

It is possible for the placenta to work itself out.  I'm sure your doctor will monitor that.  But I have known a couple of people that had to have c-sections for this reason.  One of them had their placenta erupt which is not a good thing, thus the c-section.  Sometimes during a scan, it can look like the placenta is low if you have a full bladder-even semi full.  Did they have you empty your bladder during the scan to make sure this wasn't the problem??
