Welcome to ehealthforum,
The grades given to placenta during ultrasound scan are to convey the placental maturity. Normal pregnancy duration is about 40 weeks. The baby’s weight can get picked up during the last few weeks. It is difficult to comment whether you will go ahead with normal vaginal delivery or cesarean section until you go into labor. There are maternal as well as fetal factors that come into play in deciding whether normal vaginal delivery is possible, or if the factors suggest indication for cesarean section. For further clarification and assistance, consider discussing your current status, fetal wellbeing, and ultrasound scan report with your treating doctor/gynecologist.
Take care.
