Question: Placenta posterior 2.5 cm above the os.will it be ok at the time of delivery? Is it ok for a normal delivery?
Answer: Hello!! It is a low lying placenta. This is a complication during pregnancy where the placenta moves down blocking the path of the baby to move. It will get better by the time of delivery or not is difficult to say but if the placenta remains in the same position, you will have to go for a C-section. Also currently it is better that you be in complete Bed rest and avoid too much of activity.

Answer: it's very early to say about the normal delivery or the c-section as the chances of placenta to move upwards are there but if at the time of delivery the Placenta is low lying then you might have to go for C section
But you should not worry because low lying placenta at this week will change and move upwards with the growth of uterus. You need to take some precautions
Take bed rest with leg end raised

Avoid excessive bending or lifting heavy objects
continue your progesterone tablets
