Hello and welcome to HCM.

Thank you for your query.

A gravid uterus is one with an unborn fetus growing inside of it. Tri-chorionic means you have three placentas; tri-amniotic means you have three amniotics sacs. Which means you have one placenta for each sac. Which obviously mean you are having triplets. Congratulations.

One cephalic: is the position of one of the babies (this is a normal position)
Two breech: is a position of the baby other than the normal one. This is normally in twin or triplet pregnancies, and will be dealt with at the time of delivery. Do not worry.

FH (fetal heart) positive means your babies hearts are all beating(134-144 beats per minute) at a normal rate.

BPD (bi-parital diameter) is calculated to learn about the gestational age, which is found to be 35 weeks and 6 days.

Fetal length indicates that your gestational age is about 36 weeks and 2 days (do not worry about the difference from the above value).

Placenta locations are also fine and do not cause any obstruction to the opening (cervical os).

Adequate amount of liqour (amniotic fluid). No obvious fetal anomalies (no growth or developmental abnormalities seen).

Good news all the way. There is absolutely nothing wrong. God bless you and the 3 new members of your family.

Best wishes.
