carrying low

My Dr wants to get another ultra sound he says I'm carrying low what could that mean?  Is something wrong with my baby or coming early? I'm 30 weeks

You may have just dropped really soon but if there havent been any complications up until now or any things wrong then I would say your baby is fine. At least you get to see it again :)

Nooooo...baby is fine im sure...dont worry yourself. This is my second baby and i carry very low because i have an incompetant cervix...im guessing he wants to see your cervical length!!  Thats the main concern with low riders :)
