A bit worried
i went for my ultra sound, and the readings showed that i am 6 weeks 1 day, with CRL of 6.5 mm. The heartbeat of the baby was detected. Is this normal. I have seen reports saying the crl should be below arond 4-5 at 6 weeks. My gynae said all is good and he would see me in 4 weeks time. Am i worring unnecessarily?

It's all fine. If the baby is a bit longer than average, that is not a problem.
