Brief Answer: NORMAL ULTRASOUND REPORT Detailed Answer: Hello THanks for writing to us with your health concern. Your ultrasound report is absolutely normal. BPD is biparietal diameter, and HC is head circumference, both these measure the head. AC is the abdominal circumference. FL is the femur length. The placenta supports the baby,and it is normally situated in the fundal part ( upper part ) of the uterus, in posterior position ( towards your back ). Amniotic fluid is the liquid present around the baby, which is normal in amount. Foetal movements, that is baby's movements are normal. FH is fetal heart rate, that is the heart beat of the baby, which is normal. Everything in your report is fine, do not worry at all. Placenta grade 2 reflects the maturity of the placenta, which is also normal. For 32 weeks, the report is fine, and there is no abnormality. Ultrasound at 32 weeks cannot predict if you will have a normal delivery. For that , at term, you need to have a pelvic assessment done by your obstetrician. If all findings are normal, only at 38 - 39 weeks, it can be decided whether vaginal normal delivery will be accomplished. SO right now, dont worry and enjoy your pregnancy ! Take care, please feel free to ask for further clarifications.
