Low lying placenta will usually move up and become normal by 34th week. If it doesn't it could cause obstruction to the lower pole of uterus and need Caesarian section delivery to prevent further complications. You may be at risk of Placental abruption due to the bleed but not in most cases. You need to have proper rest. Avoid lifting weights. Doctor may give Progesterone injection to help strengthen the placenta and prevent miscarriage.
