in your case internal os i.e mouth of uterus is closed - good sign

placenta is reaching the internal os and not covering this is mild variety

as the pregnancy progresses the uterus will enlarge and the placenta will move up i.e away from internal os

at present following precautions are help full

adequate rest

if there is spotting / minimal bleeding try to keep foot end of bed at higher level for some time- at least till bleeding stops

avoid any jerky / hasty movement

avoid any travel even short term- like shopping in local store etc.

only do minimum activity, like using taking bath(by sitting on chair), washroom etc. that to slowly and with caution

whole idea is to keep the uterus is minimum possible stress
