Hi! Many thanks for your question on eHealth forum!

If you have placenta previa and feel pain and pressure in the lower abdomen and pelvic area, then it is wiser to consult your gynecologist now and get this checked. Refrain from squatting etc until you see the specialist.

A number of women with low lying placenta are asked to go slow in second half of pregnancy and some may be put on bed rest too. Hope this helps. Take care!
