Fetus bigger than average

Hi, I am 15 weeks and 2 days pregnant. The fetus is 12.1cm long and weighs 121 gram. On the average chart it says it is 10cm and 70 gram. Why is the difference so big? Is this something to be concerned about?

No it is nothing to be concerned about. The ultrasound measurements are only a guide.

No, its nothing to be concerned about. Also remember that the measurements taken during a scan are not always 100% accurate. Many women are told they are having 4kg babies and they have 2.5kg babies. Just being a mm off int he measurement makes about a 100g difference.
