Low Lying Placenta: Facts You Should Know!

PV

You should take rest as much as possible...no heavy work which will strain body. If you had bleeding or spotting , then full bed rest...restrict travel, bending down, no weight carrying and pelvic movements as much as possible...telling from my experience:) mostly be positive and don't take stress

Aditi Adlakha

Precautions advised above are enough. I have low lying placenta till now. It generally goes up by 8th month. Take special precautions at the end of 6th / start of 7th as hormones change at that time. I had bleeding episode at that time. Inform doctor for any pain in abdomen. Are you working ? If you stay at home, take regular break from work and lie down for sometime. As and when you feel pressure in lower abdomen, leave everything and lie down.

Echo what Aditi mentioned....in my case I had bleeding as early as my 13th week itself...low lying placenta was diagnosed post the bleeding episode...went on complete bed rest fir 4th and 5th months...started mild walking in my 6th and now into 7th...going for my sonography to understand the placenta position...hopefully all is well by now....in any case, taking rest is the main key...keep all other things apart...I had tough time with my elder one's routine things around..still managed

I am working, but it’s mostly a desk job, and am taking a break from meetings, or too much travel, as of now the doctors said, as long as the fluid does not increase, and I don’t bleed, it should be ok, but I am to take it easy. And PV all the best with your sonography, all will be well, Aditi, thank you for elaborating t so well!
