Thank you for your query.
The above ultrasound is normal, except that it shows mild oligohydramnios.
This means that the amniotic fluid around the baby has decreased.
you could be given a trial of labour, if at term, your pelvis is adequate as assessed by your obstetrician, and then if everything proceeds fine, normal delivery is not a problem.
However, a word of caution : if fluid decreases further, reduced amniotic fluid during labour will cause dangerous changes in fetal heartbeat ( fetal distress ), for which Cesarean delivery maybe required.
take care
