It may be too early to comment on the placental position now. However a placenta placed anterior and reaching up to the os is not safe.

It should go posterior and away from the os as the pregnancy progresses. The problem is it may create difficulty in vaginal delivery.

There is nothing much that you can do on this. Do not do rigorous physical activity. Repeat the scan at 5th month.

All the best wishes.
