Thanks for the query.

I understand your concerns. Let me reassure you that you can expect 2 weeks difference in third trimester. So I don’t think this is significant.

Just relax and have good balanced diet.

Repeat the ultrasound after 2 weeks to see the growth and find any mistake in present scan.

I hope I answered your query. Let me know if you have any more queries.
