Placenta previa questions???

Ok - at my 20+ week ultrasound, they found that my placenta was "low-lying" - not full placental previa, but pretty close to the opening. I saw the doctor immediately after my ultrasound (it's in the same office) - so he explained the problem with a vaginal delivery when the placenta is so close to where the baby has to squeeze out, but that 9 times out of 10 it moves up and out of the way as the uterus grows.
So, I got scheduled for a follow-up ultrasound at 28 weeks, and I had that today, but according to the US Tech's notes, my placenta is still low-lying and only 1.7 cm from the cervical os (the opening). BUT, I don't see the doctor (and hear what he has to say) until my appointment on the 12th. Less than 2 cm seems SO close - and I feel like the doc is going to give me the option to just go ahead and schedule a c-section.
If the placenta hasn't moved away in the last 8 weeks, what are the chances it'll move enough out of the way between now and when I start labor?
Has anyone had a similar circumstance? Or have any advice? Thanks.
Thanks so much. MTT & the wee bald Walker
