Are all measurements taken at a scan only an aproximate??? Sorry it may be a silly question.... We have had a scan this week and bub is measuring nearly two weeks ahead with height.... I feel I am having a giraffe!!
Yes, my sonographer said theres 10-20% room for error either side. As baby gets bigger and the measurements get bigger the room for error is greater.
Does that make sense?
I hope there was an error, because the measurements at my 20 week scan put bub at 21w6d when it was only 20w1d. I thought I was growing a giant! LOL!
Anyway, I'm going back this week for a repeat scan because they couldn't get all of the measurements smile
10 - 20%... if you ended up with a 3.5kg baby, that makes a variance of 350 - 700 gram either side, so you could have had a baby weighing anything from 2.8kg - 4.2kg!
