How far ahead did you measure with twins? — The Bump
Multiples

How far ahead did you measure with twins?

I had an appointment yesterday and she measured my bump, it showed 26cm. I was shocked considering I'm 19 weeks along and feel like my bump is just starting to show.  I've gained 10lbs up to this point and started at a normal weight pre pregnancy.  The OB says I'm doing great and I'm supposed to measure 4-6 weeks ahead with twins.  I just didn't expect that it would measure 7 weeks ahead. 

I just thought I'd see how others measured with your twin pregnancy?

  • At my last visit, I was just over 19 weeks and I was measuring 26 weeks.  My OB said it's normal. 

    And FWIW, I started out with some extra pounds and have gained about 9 pounds up to this point.  I just had my anatomy scan before Christmas and everything was measuring on track and both boys weighed around 8 oz.

    Wow, it sounds like you and I are very close in our pregnancies!  Both my babies were 8oz at the 18 week anatomy scan too.  We're having boy/girl twins.

  • During my 2nd trimester I was typically measuring 5 weeks ahead. As of Mondays apt I am measuring at 39 weeks, so 4 weeks ahead now.

  • At my appointment at 22 weeks I was measuring 30 weeks. It's very normal to measure several weeks ahead with twins.

  • I measured 27 weeks at my 20 week appointment and 31 weeks at my 23 week appointment.  I wasn't feeling that big at that point in time, but I am overweight, so that contributes to the larger measurement.  I feel like I've grown a lot in the last few weeks, and I have another appointment tomorrow, so we'll see how big I'm measuring now.
  • I measured 43 weeks when I gave birth at 35w. I think it was around the 18-20 week point when my measurements jumped ahead of a singleton.

  • Around 16 weeks is when I began to measure ahead. It was consistently 'ahead' by about 4 weeks until I neared the end. At my last appt (36w) I was measuring 42w. The measurement seemed different depending on which OB measured me as well, for whatever reason.

  • That's totally normal, and makes perfect sense considering you have twice the baby (and amniotic fluid, and placenta, if those apply). :) I measured 4w ahead by 16w, 5w ahead by 23w and measured about 8w ahead for the whole third tri.

  • I was around 8w ahead at delivery.
  • I've been measuring around 8 weeks ahead for the past few OB visits.  The doctor says it's to be expected with twins, and it's normal.
