Answer: Hello 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. Take care

Question: I am 24 weeks pregnant now. I have low lying placenta. Is bed rest is essential?
Answer: Hello If ur advised bed rest from ur doctor then it's necessary Don't worry much about low lying placenta. Many ppl have it. Just take enough bed rest, so that when your uterus grows the placenta automatically moves up. Only idea here is to not make the placenta move further down by lifting heavy things, walking faster kind of strenuous things involving the pelvic region. You can sit for as much as you want. Just keep your legs elevated so that your pelvic region is stress free. And if you feel like walking, walk very slowly. Avoid long travels or travels on bumpy roads even if it's shorter. Do this for 4-6 weeks and during the next scan you should find out that your placenta has moved up. Relax and enjoy your pregnancy. Though this is a serious medical condition, it's remedy is veryc very simple and easily solved in shorter duration. ,

Question: doctor said that my placenta is low lying have not suggested bed rest I am 12 weeks pregnant.. what does it actually mean?..and how common is this?
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.
