Hello Reni, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
When you do an obstetric ultrasound at your obstetrician, you should always ask clearly the results of the ultrasound to the doctor. You have the right to know clearly the condition of your pregnancy and your fetus, so you should not hesitate to ask your doctor as clearly as possible.
BPD (biparietal diameter) on the ultrasound results illustrates the diameter of the right-left side of the baby's head, AC (abdominal circumference) describes the circumference of the baby's abdomen, FL (femur length) describes the size of the baby's thigh bone. All three are used to calculate EFW (estimated fetal weight) or estimated fetal weight. Meanwhile FHR (fetal heart rate) describes the presence or absence of fetal heart rate (in the results you specify write +, meaning that there is a fetal heart rate, not written with certainty how many beats).
At 27-28 weeks of pregnancy, the normal fetal weight ranges from 1039-1189 grams. Your baby is large, although it cannot be said that the size is abnormal. From the results of the ultrasound you have listed, it can only be concluded thus, to be more complete about the health condition of your fetus, it helps you inquire directly with your obstetrician.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
