You have a low-lying placenta at present but in all possibility this will shift upward as the pregnancy progresses. So, please do not worry. This can be reviewed at a later date as you reach the last trimester and assessment done. As of now, nothing much needs to be done as a special precaution for this except that you restrict heavy work and tedious journeys and intercourse. Please follow your doctor's instructions. Wish you good health.
