Placenta located anteriorly and upper segment with grade II maturity at 32 weeks is normal.
Umbilical cord shows single loose loop around fetal neck is notable but this finding may change later on due to the constatn mobility of the fetus in the uterus.
Maternal left uterine artery Doppler showing early distolic notch means that regular check ups and fetal monitoring would be better.
