    Boy!! Had the scan yesterday and everything is fine, all measurements are fine, all is good in the land of baby!!! He was actually moving loads so was a bit difficult to start with :D Actually wondered if you gals might be able to let me know what these abbreviations are in my notes, they are all measurements taken yesterday but I am struggling to work out what they all are...

    BPD 47 MM
    HC 180 MM
    AC 143 MM
    FL 32 MM
    PD 37 MM
    Va 7.9 MM
    Vp 6.0 MM
    Cerebellum 20.0 MM
    Cisterna Magna 5.6 MM

    Placenta : Upper posteria

    Any ideas girls? I was told they are all normal, but i suppose i just want to understand a bit more

    thanks in advance xxxxxxxxxx

    CONGRATS ON THE BOY!!! welcome to the boy-club!!

    BPD = Bi-parietal diameter (measuring baby's head from ear to ear)
    AC = Abdominal Circumference
    HC = Head Circumference
    FL = Femoral Length (length of the thigh bone)

    Placenta : Upper posteria = placenta located towards the top at the back wall of the uterus

    that's all i can remember right now without having my own maternity notes in front of me!

    got curious myself and found this:

    so it seems it is something in the brain!

    and this seems like it's part of the brain too!

    Congratulations Jessika, glad he's all healthy :D

    The abbrieviations take some getting used to. My hospital give you a fact sheet to try and help understand your scan notes which is quite good :)

    There are no references to VA or VP on my scan details or my notes :?

    But for the others, just to confirm what's on my sheet:

    Cerebellum - Base of the brain
    Cord Insertion - Checking the insertion of the umbilical cord ensures the abdominal wall is properly formed.
    Sagittal, Transverse and Coronal - The directional views the Sonographers uses to examine the spine
    BPD - Bi-parietal Diameter - The distance across the widest part of the baby's head (ear to ear)
    FL - Femur length (the thigh bone)
    HC - Head circumference (the distance around the baby's head)
    AC - Abdominal circumference (the distance around the baby's tummy)
    FHB - Fetal heartbeat has been seen beating

    Placenta positions:
    Posterior - the placenta is situated on the back wall of the uterus
    Anterior - the placenta is situated on the front wall of the uterus
    Fundal - the placenta is situated at the top of the uterus
    OS - The internal opening to the uterus

    Liquor volume - the amniotic fluid around the baby.

    Sorry I can't help with the other bits :(
