Thanks for posting your query at
The scan is normal.
The placenta is normally situated and of proper maturity.
May I know what is your question ?
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Take care.

Patient replied :

Is grade 2 maturity at 20 weeks is normal... Have read that grade 2 doesn't appear until up to 30 weeks so was bit concerned

Can you please upload the ultrasound scan report with images ?

Patient replied :

Attaching my reports. Plz do let me know. Today only had visited my doctor and she said every thing is perfect but still worried about this.

The report is absolutely normal.
But you are right, the placenta does not have grade 2 maturity at 20 weeks.
A hypermature placenta is associated with adverse outcomes for the baby and mother, but going through the images, I find your placenta to be fine, and not hypermature.
Please contact the scanning doctor and request for a clarification.
I am sure they have made some mistake in typing .
Keep me posted.
Dont worry, everything seems to be fine in the scan and images.

Patient replied :

Thanks for your reply....will confirm it from sonographer......but as per your observation what grade does it look like....?

It looks like it should be at this gestational age.
Grade 1 maturity.
Do not worry.
