10 month old not crawling

This is my first time chatting. Pls can I have some urgent advise. My baby girl will be 10 months on the 15th and she is not crawling. She is showing no interest in crawling. She does not mind being on her stomach but that is about it. She more bum shuffles. She is trying to pull her self up to the standing position. I think she is more interested in walking than crawling. Anybody already been through this. Should I be worried? I have heard that it is a bad thing if babies miss the crawling stage. Why?? My little boy crawled at 8 and half months and walked at 9 months so never really had this problem. Your advise would be greatly appreciated as I am really worried.
