Baby conceived by ICSI. Baby's date differ in scans, heartbeat normal. Is baby's growth less?

Hello. I had a scan in the maternity hospital when I was at 9 weeks . the scan showed the baby measured 1.96cm and 8 weeks 4 days. The last scan I had at the maternity hospital was at 6 weeks 3 days but the baby only measured 6 weeks and 1 day. Scans showed heartbeat and doctor seemed happy but now I m starting to worry as baby is a little behind where it should be. We conceived with ICSI so our dates should be correct. Does this sound normal/ok?

In early pregnancy ultrasound scans, the difference of upto 1 weeks is acceptable.
As your scan at 6 weeks 3 days showed heart beat of the baby and the repeat scan at 9 weeks showed the interval growth and heart beat of the baby, so we can be sure that the baby is growing normally.
So,this ultrasound report is normal.
Continue taking the prescribed medications and dont take stress.
Hope this information is helpful to you.
