Thanks for the query.

According to your ultrasound report fetal parameters are normal.
At present we cannot guess the possibility of normal delivery.
That can be told after reaching term gestation by measuring fetal weight, size of head, pelvic parameters, possibility of descent etc.
Though your height is less, if the pelvis is adequate and baby size is average normal delivery is possible.

Take care.

hello madam mahija.
i think the TIFA scan report is absolutely normal, so you can pretty well assume that your baby is structurally normal, although ultrasound examinations also can also have limitations.but answering the second part of your question , i think you are worried whether you can expect a normal vaginal delivery. am i right?
Whether delivery will be a vaginal or a caesarean , it depends on many factors when you approach the last few days of your pregnancy and more precisely during the time of labour,though i cant underestimate your short height .but i think these are not the things to worry now and you should absolutely enjoy your pregnancy now. Vaginal or abdominal ,any route is good if both mother and baby are fine . So stop worrying now . All the best.
