There is a single foetus variable presentation. Foetal heart motion was

The placenta is developing posteriorly and is away from the internal os by
approximately 40mm.
There is a normal amount of liquor.

Pathologist and Microbiologist 's  Response
Hello and welcome to HCM,

The report that you have posted is of USG pevis.
The USG reveals presence of a single live fetus.
The amount of amniotic fluid is sufficient.
The amniotic fluid is the fluid which surroundes the baby. The amniotic fluid carries the waste products from the fetus and acts as shock absorber.
Decrease or increase in amniotic fluid is associated with various diseases.
The various biometric measurements are in accordance with the gestational age of the baby. These measurements are biparietal diameter, crown rump length, femur length, etc.

The placents is attached along the posterior wall and is away from the internal as (opening of the crvix).

According to all parameters, the expected date of delivery is 18-04-2013.
Thus, all parameters are within normal limits.
Thanks and take care.

Radiologist Dr. Vamshi Kotha's  Response

Your USG report appears to be normal for gestational age. There is nothing worrisome in your report. The placenta normally develops away from the os and problems may arise only when it is close to the internal os (less than 4cm), called placenta praevia.

EDD stands for Expected Date of Delivery which is calculated based on fetal biometry (measurements) on USG and also by the date of your last menestrual cycle by your obstretician. Although the two dates may vary a bit, unless there is a large discrepancy between the two, there is nothing to worry about.
