Brief Answer:
You can move around in the house.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
The stitches in the uterus is to prevent a preterm labor. It is best to take as much rest as you can. You can move around in the house and then lie down in case you feel any pain. It has already been 3 weeks since the stitches were put. Any heavy work or intercourse needs to be avoided. Mild amount of white discharge is normal.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
