Light activity: Avoid strenuous activity and intercourse. Avoid things that make you contract. A marginal previa will usually resolve by the time you repeat your us and you will likely be able to resume these activities at that time. Braxton hicks contractions should not worry you. Ask your doctor for specific recommendations.
