Her stools are dark in color for which she thinks its because she having spinach each day. She had an Obstetric Sonography on her 13th week and 3 days pregnancy and in her reports under U.S.G. Obstretrics section it is mentioned that

What does unstable presentaion mean here, Is there something wrong at this stage of pregnancy?

Other informations are as follows

CRL 7.33 cm

Liquid is adequate in amount.

Also, the following thing is written with pen on the report

For uretroceal doctor asked if there is any Burning pain while urinating for which my wife replied no even I asked her twice again for which she said no and doctor said than nothing to worry about.
