Early u/s - one twin smaller

Postby 80's Baby » Fri Sep 19, 2014 8:14 am

I had my first ultrasound at 6 weeks 3 days. It showed twins, one measuring 6+1, the other was 5+5. Did anyone else have a size difference that early? I expected the two day difference from lmp because I ovulate late, but I'm worried about the difference between the two. They both had good heartbeats (105 and 97) and I'm getting another scan on Monday. Just wondering if any of you ladies had this early on. Thanks!

At 9 +1 weeks mine measured 9+3 and 8+6, at 12 + 4 weeks they measured 13+ 4 and 13+2 so had over taken by a whole week! Today at 20+5 they were absolutely perfect. The measurements that early are mm's and just mm out cna make a weeks difference - don't worry, relax and enjoy your babies :) xx

Thanks, Shells! That makes me feel better. :) I'm just overly nervous because of my last pregnancy. It was also twins, but we didn't find out until 9 weeks. And by that time, they were both gone, only measuring 6+5. :/ Doc did say they both looked good this time, but to keep realistic expectations. Hopefully, I'll be able to breathe a sigh of relief on Monday!
