Question: I am 15 weeks pregnant. My ultrasound shows low lying placenta. How it can move upward before 20 weeks? I am on bed rest
Answer: Hello dear, low lying placenta can move up during the course of pregnancy. You must avoid intercourse and report any case of bleeding to your doctor. In a rare case that placenta does not move up also, chances of anything bad happening to the baby or mother is very less. Avoid jerky ride, heavy lifting and heavy work. If it moves up then no caesarean but if stays down then chances of caesarean are there. Don't worry so much just now. This time will only tell.
Hope it helped Take care urself...

Question: Hi.. i am 16 weeks pregnant.. doctor said low lying placenta for me and take bed rest.. Is anything complications in delivery time
Dear Low lying placenta is a common issue. It's the position in which the embryo plants itself. Usually it should be on the side or top of uterus. In my case it's lying at the bottom covering the internal OS. It usually gets resolved on its own as and when pregnancy progresses meaning it shifts few inches upwards you can't do anything to correct it. It might lead to occasional or severe bleeding. As long as there is no severe bleeding there is no need for complete bed rest. You can lead normal life doing your usual chorus like going to office doing household activities, traveling. You just need to be llittle cautious like to avoid heavy jerks, heavy weight lifting , heavy exercises. You cannot have intercourse. That's all. In many cases placenta shifts up. If not then you cannot have a normal delivery. I would advise to go through another doctor for second advise as I have never been asked for bed rest.
