Hello deepika...
Sitting positions during pregnancy have an impact on your health, and also on your baby. That is why, sitting properly is one of the pregnancy habits that you need to develop diligently.. When seated in a chair it is important to sit up straight with knees bent at  90deg angle and your pelvis tilted slightly forward.  Do not cross your legs or ankles, it’s bad for circulation and can lead to swelling & varicose veins.  Changing & adjusting positions frequently is imperative for good blood flow so try not to sit for too long.  Try and stand up at least every hour to do a quick stretch & then resume what you were doing.  It only takes a moment.. Placing a pillow behind you will help stabilize you.  Use either an extra firm pillow or body pillow to place between your knees.  This will help keep your hips in alignment and avoid unnecessary aches.. Pain in abdomen is common to have in this period.. if you are confused, better to consult doctor and low lying placenta can be known only by USG scan..
