Welcome to HCM

Your report is having normal study. It says:

The placenta is at its proper position with the mentioned size.

The fetus is live with mentioned size which is normal for 21 weeks and normal heart rate.

Liquor is also adequate which is a fluid present in the cavity to keep the fetus shock free and prevents from trauma. Its a kind of shock absorber.

Os is close which is the opening of the uterus towards the vagina. there are two os present in the cervix, internal and external os. The closed os prevents abortion.

cervix length is also normal.

The pregnancy is going normal upto this stage. For normal vaginal delivery take care of few drugs. Never used drugs with the advise of the expert especially steroids and prostaglandin. Avoid heavy weight lifting and exertional activities. keep good care of your hemoglobin by taking healthy diet.
