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.
