Could my baby be healthy with short femurs?

'm 4'9 my husband is 5'7 I just had my 18 week ultrasound and my baby's femurs were measuring short. That was the only marker he had, is it possible he is just short and doesn't necessarily have DS? there were no other indicators that the doctor told me of
(18 week 2 days the day of ultrasound)
Cereb 1.90Cm
BPD 3.81 Cm
OFD  5.81 Cm
HC 14.41 Cm
NF 2.66 MM
AC 12.81 CM
Fl 1 - 2.29
Fl 2 - 2.26 CM
