baby weights

Postby hazelbazel » Sun May 05, 2013 9:08 pm

So at my last ultrasound at 27 weeks baby girl was 2lbs 6ozs and baby boy was 2lbs 4 ozs. They said that just one of my babies is about what a single baby weighs at this point and that for twins I'm on target to have some big ones. What do you think? are my babies big for twins?

Mine were BORN at 29 weeks weighing 2lb even each. So yours are on track to do awesome, I'd say!! Mine were a bit growth restricted though, the doctor said they were the size of 25 weekers.

I don't remember what mine weighed at 27 weeks but mine were born at 33 weeks at 3lbs13oz and 3lbs10oz. It sounds like yours have some great weights!

That sounds great to me! Last time they checked our girls they were still on track with singleton weight as well. Hoping it stays that way! I really want nice, full term, take home babies!

Both of my boys were estimated at 2lbs 4 oz at 27 weeks..

They were born at 35, one was 5lbs 4.5 oz and the other was 5lbs 5 oz. they did have a big growth spurt though in week 33/34 (maybe it was bc I was shoveling Ice cream in my face nonstop in attempt to fatten them up haha)

I think though that if I was able to stay pregnant longer, my boys could have been on the larger side...but I guess I'll never know!!

Hazel, at 28 weeks which was last time mine were measured, boy B was 3 lbs and boy A was 2 lbs 6 oz. I was kind of concerned because they were 10 oz apart but the dr. told me she wasn't concerned because A was normal size and B was just ahead. It sounds like if yours were those sizes at 27 weeks they are both really on a good track to be nice and big!

baby B 3lbs 5oz, and baby A 3lbs 3oz

Thanks all! Looking forward to my next growth check at 31 weeks to see where we're at!
