Hi Ae,
Thanks for posting your query.
If at term pregnancy placenta is within 3 cm of os, then it is said to be placenta previa.
You are having 22 weeks pregnancy & as pregnancy advances, placenta goes away from os due to growth of lower uterine segment.
So at this stage it is ok & nothing to worry.
It is good to have aerobic exercise & walking, but it should not be stressful.
You can travel by train but it should not be too long that you start developing stress.
There are many medical factors also to decide that whether you can go for normal delivery or not. But main thing you should do is not to gain excessive weight means more than 12-14 kg in whole pregnancy & take proper balanced diet.
I hope your query has been answered.
