Answer: hi dear! so the measurement is of the collection of blood that has taken place dear. and yes you will have to be on bed rest dear for sure and the brown discharge can be due to the retroplacental collection dear dont worry . this retroplacental collection has been faced by many pregnant women dear. and it is the most common cause of bleeding in pregnancy dear. as you will have to keep a check on the measurement normally it can go away on its own by reducing in the size and causing no harm to the growing fetus dear. so dont worry you will have to be on bed rest and if your doctor has said about 2 months then you should take a 2 months bed rest. the risks can be you can if the size increases then there can be placental abruption , preterm delivery , or premature rupture of the membranes dear which will eventually cause early delivery . take care dear.

Question: last week I had a ultrasound and doctor said me complete bed rest due to low lying placenta and 1.6 cm from cervix. after one week my sister marriage is there what should I do?
Answer: follow these precautions A short cervix means the length of your cervix (also called cervical length) is shorter than normal. You may find out that you have a short cervix during an ultrasound that you get as part of your regular prenatal care. Mostly during 24th -31st week. Steriods helps prepare your body for pregnancy. It may help prevent premature birth only if you have a short cervix and you’re pregnant with just one baby. Limiting your activity can also help ease the feeling of vaginal pressure you get when the baby is sitting low against your cervix. Any time you have an increase in pressure, be sure to contact your healthcare provider Being dehydrated can cause your uterus to start contracting. Be sure to drink at least eight 8-ounce glasses of water or other caffeine-free beverages each day. Drink even more when the weather is warm, even if you are indoors. You should be drinking enough that it makes your urine clear. A full bladder can also cause contractions, so don’t wait to get to the bathroom when you feel the urge.
