What Does It Mean If My Baby Is Measuring Big For Gestational Age
Half bigger/smaller: If you look at the size of babies at any point in pregnancy, the average defines a point where half are bigger & half are smaller.

At 33 weeks pregnant, baby's femur measured slightly smaller than the gestational age and everything else was slightly larger. What could this mean?
Normal variation?: Size, eg, length estimates by ultrasound can vary due to sonographer difficulty in obtaining measurement, inherent errors in the calculation, or genetic variation--just look at the parents of the baby! in rare cases variations from normal can be due to growth or other problem in the fetus.

Could gestational sac measure small due to dehydration? The baby is measuring normal with a normal hb but the sac is measuring almost 2 weeks behind.
We had our first ultrasound today at 9 weeks 2 days. The baby is measuring (crown to rump) an accurate 9w2d, but the gestational sac is 8 ?
Many results of US: There r many measurements that r taken during the trimester ultrasounds (US) to help gauge how the fetus is progressing. None of the measurements are 100% accurate.
