CRL baby length question 6 and 7 weeks


My doctor is awesome and lets me come in every week or 2 during this first trimester to make sure everything is ok. I had an ultrasound at 6 weeks +1 day and the CRL measurement was .437 cm. Then at 7 weeks + 3 days it was .941 cm. The doctor seems to think everything is good but if I look at charts online, the baby was measuring kind of big at the 6 week and small at the 7 week. I am concerned. Should I be? The heartbeat looked good at the second appointment at 154 bpm. Thanks for any input!

At 6+1 I was between 5-6mm, at 7+5 it was 14.9mm (I think) 8+1 my crl was 18mm and at 8+5 it is 23mm

Baby's grow at their own rate even Inutero . They can go through growth spurts as well so the smaller measure ment could be right before a got with spurt

I just found this article:

According to this study, my baby was measuring 100% perfect both at my 6 and 7 week appointments. What a relief. It just seems like everyone's 7 week measurements are so big compared to mine.
