    Hi ladies,

    first time on here and feel like I'm being a tad dramatic but can't help it. I had my 20 week scan last week and our little girl measures 12cm. A friend of mine had scan today at 14 weeks and hers is already 13cm. I've been looking online at average measurements and she seems very small in comparison. Anyone else the same???? Am I worrying for nothing??

    Many thanks

    Caz. :)

    thanks so much folks. It says 12cm at top of the scan whereas my friends says 13cm yet I'm 6 weeks further on. Tech didn't tell us if it was crown to rump or toe. She did seem very positive about everything else so maybe I shouldn't worry.

    Sparsh - what's your babba's measurements? slightly bigger? Internet says average should be 25cm at this point. :)
