My placenta was also low initially and was still low 1 week before giving birth, the only difference was that i have to be csect :) Gynae also reminded me the same about avoiding sexual intercourse and exercise. However, Bleeding or not i think such observations are to be checked throughout the pregnancy not just cos of low placenta :) just be extra careful for the timebeing and u gonna be fine!

i had low lying placenta too, but moved up by week 35. Don't worry too much. My gynae asked to avoid carrying heavy things and sexual intercourse. But still must exercise (light ones). so i went swimming a lot from after week 20 all the way till week 37 (this kept my mood up too!). Gynae also discussed with me delivery options. Not uncommon.

I had Low lying placenta too since the week 20 detailed scan until week 34! Don’t worry so much about it and listen to what your doc advises you to do :) For mine, she told me not to have sex, no exercises, and don’t walk so much. Also prescribed me with some stool softener so I don’t have to squeeze hard during constipation.
