welcome to HCM,
Low-lying placenta is also called as placenta praevia. it is common during early pregnancy. If you have an ultrasound scan at 11 weeks and the placenta seems to be near, or even covering the cervix, don't be too worried. As your baby grows, your expanding uterus naturally pulls the placenta away from your cervix. Even if the placenta is still low-lying at your 20-week scan, it may still move up by the time your baby is born. and if it don't move up you need to deliver baby through Cesarian section.
usually it does not required special care at this time. you can do your routine activity as usual. if you have bleeding then contact to nearest doctor.
have a better heath and healthy baby
