I don't know about the measuring big. I personally think that is a great weight for twins. I now that my ob told me after 28 weeks I will be going every week.

I always measured a few days to a week ahead. I was allowed to keep going as far as 38+ weeks because my OB knew the u/s is a good tool but not 100% and preferred to err on the side of caution. I went weekly after 32 weeks.

I'm not a doctor but I think those weights sound great! At 22 weeks mine were just over 1 lb each, I don't go back until 26 weeks. That's when I will start going every two weeks they said.

P.S. I didn't think they'd let us go much past 36 weeks anyway with twins, do they?? I'm hoping to make it to 37. I would think most of us will go by 38 weeks at the latest.

Thanks Ladies!


My doctor said if the boys got up to 6-7 pounds she would probably take them out at about 36-37 weeks.

I think those weights sound great! Maybe they just had their growth spurt. In any case, not something to stress about just yet. You could end up going way early and feel blessed they are bigger than normal. Mine were almost 6 lbs each at 34 weeks, so definitely on the large side, but nice since they were early!
