13 weeks pregnant, spotting in week 4 and week 12, fresh bleeding, low lying placenta

Hi, I am 35 and first time pregnant . Currently at 13 weeks. Had spotting at week 4 and week 12. Yesterday started bleeding with fresh blood the first time. Dr says this may be due to my low lying placenta . What precautions should I take ? Also I have been having headaches the last two evenings. Is that a concern? Thanks.

hello madam.
welcome to HCM,
congratulations for your pregnancy.
since you are having placenta previa ( low lying placenta) , painless fresh bleeding is the most common symptom of this condition.
you are presently in the first trimester of pregnancy, there are chances of the placenta shifting upwards in the next trimester.
presently you should rest in bed , prevent much walking and working and keep your mind at peace and out of all stress.
any heavy bleeding you should immediately go to the hospital for further care.
headache may be due to the stress you are facing.
take bed rest and take good care of your self.
may god bless you.
