Answer: hi dear! so you have a low lying placenta then you should avoid having intercourse and any high strain work. and normally there are chances of the placenta to move up as the pregnancy continues you will have to keep a watch on it through the scans . and the cervical length should not be less than 3 at this time as then you might need a cervical stitch dear. so you will have to keep a watch on it also dear. and you are borderline dear. just keep a watch and do visit your doctor . as in pregnancy the cervical length decreases later in the pregnancy so its better to get the stitch dear and its removed later on in the pregnancy by around 37 weeks. take care.

Question: Hi everyone,, i m 20 week pregnant. At my 19 week 3 days anamoly scan cervical length is 3. Is this normal or i have short cervical length??
Answer: Hi! Cervical length changes during the whole pregnancy. It doesn't remain constant... yours cervical length is normal..if it is 2.5cm or below that, it is considered as short cervix that wouldn't be suitable for normal delivery. Hope you got the answer. Happy pregnancy!

Question: my doctor told me I have low lying Placenta. now I am 15 weeks pregnant. what care should I take?
Answer: Low-lying placenta, or placenta praevia, is a complication of pregnancy where the placenta that feeds the growing baby is attached to the lower part of the womb near to or covering the cervix. A low lying placenta, by itself, may not require any treatment. If it is early in your pregnancy, before the twentieth week, then there is a good chance that the placenta will shift into an upward position as your uterus expands. If the placenta stays at a low lying position but is not near enough to the cervix to be classified as placenta previa. However there are treatments to prevent the two most common complications of a low lying placenta: bleeding and preterm labor. To prevent these problems some women are placed on bed rest or limited activity. Especially activities that result in bouncing or jarring of the lower abdomen need to be avoided. Similarly some women need to refrain from sexual intercourse, or the use of rectal suppositories or vaginal douches/suppositories. The degree of restriction depends on whether or not the woman is experiencing any vaginal bleeding or pre-term labor.
