Answer: Hello dear. You can continue your daily activities as per normal unless you have been advised otherwise. Usually restrictions like no sex or lifting etc are prescribed to women who have placenta previa (placenta covering their cervix) and or those who experience blood loss due to a low lying placenta. If you have a low lying placenta at 18-20 weeks, this does not mean you need a caesarean section. The placenta will highly likely be further away from the cervix at the end of your pregnancy. In your first and second trimesters, the uterus still has much growing to do, so an ultrasound late in your third trimester (after the uterus has finished growing) will give you and your doctor or midwife a better picture of what’s really going on – and if it really a matter of concern. Hope it helps.

Question: I had my 3rd month NT scan and it shows my placenta is low lying. What pracautions should be taken ?
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. Low-lying placenta may be picked up during a routine 20-week ultrasound scan appointment. In some cases, a placenta that is seen to be low-lying will move upwards later in pregnancy. Any bleeding from placenta praevia at the entrance to the womb in the second half of the pregnancy can be heavy and a risk to the baby and the mother's health. After a low-lying placenta diagnosis, seek medical advice if there's any bleeding during pregnancy. Having a low-lying placenta means it is more likely a caesarean section delivery will be recommended. There are several types of placenta praevia: A low-lying placenta is near the cervical opening but not covering it. It will often move upward in the uterus as your due date approaches. A partial placenta praevia covers part of the cervical opening. A total placenta praevia covers and blocks the cervical opening.
