Today I been to hospital for further scan and consultant said everything is normal and they will keep n eye when baby comes:))my reports states-

No structural abnormality seen. Prominent bowl loops are exclusively large bowel with typical haustrations and peripheral location.no small bowel loops present.
None of the loops exceeds 18mm  in transverse diameter.most likely meconium filled  large bowel loops that are common in late gestation.

What do you think about this?? As per her opinion everything is ok and they just need to check baby after delivery!!

Thank you very much once again.

Kind regards
