Thank you for your quqery.
Normal fetal biometry at 32 weeks should be :
BPD - 81 mm
FL 62
HC - 288
AC - 283.
BPD means biparietal diameter and HC means head circumference, both measure fetal head size.
FL is femur length, length of thighs.
AC is abdominal circumference.
Your report is normal.
However, the AC value is either mistyped or grossly abnormal.
The baby is lying with the head in the pelvis which is normal.
Placenta and amniotic fluid are normal.
Take care.
