hi there, your discription is suggestive of a condition called placenta previa, and though at this stage it is not trouble some in your 2nd and third trimester as the lower uterine segment gets stretched it may lead to preterm bleeding which may be quite serious. You should consult your gynecologist and be under her constant guidance as to the protocol for its treatment and no there is nothing you can do about it. Let your obstretitian guide you to the management of this condition. Take care.
