Hello and thanks for posting your query on HCM
Your scan report suggets that your baby is lying in upside down position that is normally the head lies below but in your case the feet lie near the cervical pole.
Situs solotus means that all organs are correctly placed in the baby.
Placents is maturing well and its position in the uterus is normal.
The gestational sac or the bag of waters ihas adequate fluid in it.
Your expected date of delivery is 11th September 2012.

Thanks and take care
