I had placenta insufficiency and didnt know it until my son was born full term at only 4.9lbs. Does it mean that I will have it when i get pregnant again?

there was no cause for my insufficiency. The placenta and cord were attached just not correctly so my son was getting nutrients just not 100%. I have no scar tissue, pelvic adhesions or anything like that. I asked my doctor and he said i would just be watched and it would be more common in me than in someone else. I am just scared since now reading up on everything about this I could have lost my son.

That depends on the cause, but typically no. It's generally just how the placenta formed, and whether it attached well to the uterus and stayed attached, and if the Chorion developed correctly. Sometimes other factors can contribute to it though, such as scar tissue from surgeries (especially C-Sections) or Uterine Ablation.
