Probably not much: As long as us looks ok, and all evidence shows baby is healthy and growing, thats good. No test is 100% perfect and there are no 100% guarantees even with 1000s of tests or exams. Ask your doctor next time. Often the weeks gestation and fundal height dont match exactly. Everthing you reported here sounds ok.

Is it normal that my baby only feeds twice a day?

Yes: When babies start solid foods they usually will tolerate about 2 feeds a day. The breastmilk or formula is and should be the bulk of their nutrition. I generally recommend changing to a three meal a day routine when they are closer to 9 months.
A member asked:

Is it true that long length at birth is an indicator of height later in life?

No: Babies are born to fit their mothers womb. This has nothing to do with their final height. Their final height has to do with their genetics and diet. Height at birth can also be affected by mother's diet during pregnancy and whether or not she smoked during the pregnancy. These things can make the baby shorter at birth.
A 43-year-old member asked:

Is it normal to not feel my baby move for a day?

Depends: It depends on how far along you are. Most women feel movment first at 18-20 weeks. From there until about 30 weeks fetal movements may not be regular and you may not feel them every day. After 30 weeks, you should feel your baby move every day. If you are ever worried it is easier and safer to get checked then to stay at home wondering.
A 45-year-old member asked:

Should I be worried if I feel my baby move less than 10 times a day?

Dr. Jeffrey Gladd

No: Not necessarily. A lot of times, you are so busy throughout the day that you did not recognize all the baby movement. If this is the case, drink a glass of ice cold water (may stimulate baby a bit more), and lie down in a dark, quiet room. You can now focus on baby movements and should count multiple movements in a 30 minute period. Try to replicate this as best as possible throughout the day.

Stay Healthy!: The best one can do is make sure to be eating healthy, get quality sleep and exercise. The rest is genetics, provided a chronic illness or the like doesn't interfere, which would be very unusual.
