Thanks for your query.

Low position of the gestational sac is thought to represent a stage rather than cause of abortion.
A gestational sac situated completely or partially in the lower uterine segment is seen in 20% of abnormal pregnancies and predicts an abnormal outcome in 94% of cases .
The abnormal outcome could be an abortion or an abnormal baby.
As the cardiac activity or heartbeat of the baby is present, the outcome is likely to be more favourable than having a low implanted sac without heartbeat.

However, the radiologist should be an expert to rule out cervical ectopic pregnancy or pregnancy on previous scar if a previous surgery on the uterus has occurred.

Rarely, the sac might assume a normal position after the first trimester.
The possibility of placenta Previa remains where the placenta might continue to be situated in the lower uterine segment even if the baby moves upwards.
This also has it's own complications.

Regarding suggestions ,
Please take lots of rest.
Avoid lifting heavy weights
Avoid climbing stairs
Avoid jerky travelling
Completely avoid sexual intercourse.
Take the medications as prescribed by your doctor, particularly folic acid and progesterone supplements are a must.

A scan within 2 to 3 weeks would reveal if the position is improving.

Please report to your Gynecologist at the earliest symptoms of cramps, pain or any slight vaginal bleeding.

Take care, and feel free to ask further questions.
