Although the fetuses of both DRs and CRs were obtained in the morning 21 DPC, the weight (6.27 g versus 3.61 g), crown-rump length (4.05 cm versus 3.30 cm), nasooccipital length (1.67 cm versus 1.34 cm), tail length (1.53 cm versus 1.34 cm), and waist circumference (1.45 cm versus 1.13 cm) were significantly lower among the morphologically normal fetuses of the DRs compared with those of the CRs (Table 4).
Given the inherent inter--and intraob-server variation in ultrasound measurements, he and his colleagues favor more conservative criteria for the definitive diagnosis of early pregnancy failure: a crown-rump length cutoff of greater than 7 mm instead of 5 mm, and a mean gestational sac diameter cutoff of more than 25 mm.

A 1999 American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) practice bulletin states that labor may be induced for logistic reasons such as psychosocial factors and distance from hospital, as long as 1 of these 4 criteria is met: (1) fetal heart tones have been documented for 20 weeks by nonelectronic fetoscope or for 30 weeks by Doppler; (2) it has been 36 weeks since a positive serum or urine human chorionic gonadotropin pregnancy test was performed; (3) ultrasound measurement of crown-rump length, obtained at 6 to 12 weeks, supports a gestational age of at least 39 weeks; (4) ultrasound obtained at 13 to 20 weeks confirms the gestational age of at least 39 weeks determined by clinical history and physical examination.
