Thanks for the query.
Usually fetal parameters within 10 to 90th percentile can be considered as normal.
So as your femur length is 47%, it comes under normal range only.
As all other parameters are normal, no need to worry.
You have to take regular followups and ultrasound examinations as usual to monitor the future growth.
And continue folic acid, iron and calcium supplements along with nutritious diet.
Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer your follow up queries. If you are satisfied with all my answer, please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
Take care.
