Yes with every scan his legs have measured a week or two behind. Ultrasound techs and midwife said everything looked perfect and there are no risk factors for Down syndrome, so I stopped worrying about it. I believe ultrasound imaging isn’t an exact science, so although it is very good for catching potential issues early, there are other things that measure ahead or behind and it doesn’t really mean anything.

Thomas and Sophie both had short thigh bones in scans. Thomas has a long torse and shorter legs, Sophie is just really short.

Emma's always measured long, but she's very proportional and I wouldn't say she had long legs at birth.

They are both healthy with no problems. Although my son is really short for his age.
That's not problem for me. I'm short too
Was your gyn concerned about it?
Nope, this was never brought up as a concern.
