Can the reading of a 10 week gestational age be wrong? Is it possible that the crown can be larger than other fetuses?
Yes: Prenatal ultrasounds are not 100% accurate. Readings also depend on the training and experience of the tech and the ob. Ultrasonography cannot detect certain anomalies in the fetuses. There have been cases when fetuses have been aborted to find out, in the post-mortem, that they were perfectly normal. But, ultrasound remains a great diagnostic tool and many lives have been saved by it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Why are fetuses measured by gestational age and not by the actual fetal age? So if u are 12wks the measurements are actually of a 10 week old fetus?
Math: Gestational age is based on your last period..The best way we can estimate fetal age....After doing thousands of measurements standards have emerged...So if you are 12 weeks and the baby is 10 weeks in size, it would indicate a smaller baby at this time...Just a way to follow growth of the baby.
