Hi Priyanka,

I understand your worry.

At 20 weeks, a low lying placenta reaching the internal os is not a good sign. As said by your gynaecologist, you must take extra care of yourself now. Give adequate bed rest. Do not do strenuous activity.

You need frequent ultrasounds to be done to monitor the level of the placenta. Go for regular follow up with your treating doctor.

I am glad that the rest of the parameters are normal.

Be relaxed and less worried as these can worsen the problem.

All the best.
