Ultrasound dates

Just had my 20 week scan at hospital
I saw three different dates on the screen 20w,20w2d,20w6d.  The tech wouldn't explain what they ment, anyone have any insight?

it means your baby is measuring where he or she should be. i asked the tech that too but mine actually told me.... if say the leg measurement showed "22w4d" thatd mean that the leg length would be that of an anverage 22week 4 day fetus.....

you're measuring perfectly! right on track!

when i was 18wks 4days my baby was measuring 23wks. so i have a long baby...lol

Most people get only one growth ultrasound, but i have a growth ultrasound on monday (ill be 32wks 4 days) because my daughter measured very small and came out 5'6 at birth at 40wks 2 days...so now with my son they want to make sure he's growing properly.
