Welcome to ehealthforum,
The report as detailed by you suggest normal scan report. As per the report, the placenta is posterior in position (inside uterine cavity) and low lying covering the internal cervix opening (covering the os). The cervix during scan looks like a tube, 3cm and 5cm in length, with one end at the top of the vagina (the external os), and the other end inside the uterus (the internal os). The normal length of a cervix during pregnancy is 3 centimeters or greater. If the closed part of the cervix measures less than 2.5cm, a stitch will be put in to stop the cervix opening further as your pregnancy progresses (usually done in hospital under a general anesthetic and is removed a few weeks before your due date). Discuss your scan report in detail with your treating gynecologist/obstetrician. Consider being in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating gynecologist/obstetrician and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet.
