**Update**24 weeks Baby A weighing a little less then Baby B

edited November 2014 in Multiples
Today was my 24 week U/S and Baby A was at 1 pound 5 ounces and Baby B was at 1 pound 10 ounces. My MFM wasn't overly concern, but he says I need to gain more weight. At 9 weeks I was 130 and at my last OB appt at 22 weeks I was 144. I did have the nurse at the MFM weigh me before I left and I was at 147. MFM said he wants be to gain at least 30-35 pounds. I could probably add more protein to my diet and eat more small meals. Any tips or food suggestions. I thought I was doing ok since I have been gaining weight, but now I am a little worried.

**Update**

Yesterday went to the MFM at 27 weeks 2 days. Baby A is still a little behind, but still within normal ranges. Baby A measuring 5 days behind B at 2 pounds. Baby B is 2 pounds 9 ounces. I saw a different MFM in the group this time and she told me the important thing is that they are still growing and within normal ranges. She does want to see me in 3 weeks again instead of 4, but she didn't seem to concerned. also both babies are still head down! :)

  • Meal replacement bars, like luna bars and clif bars, plus PBJ, were go-tos for me. I also ate A LOT of greek yogurt, like 4 of those giant tubs, per week. And eggs. I'm not a huge meat eater, so that's how I got in my protein.

  • At 24 weeks baby b was measuring small for me so I upped my weight gain and the next ultrasound, b had caught up to a, so I think it really does matter! Just wanted to encourage you!

  • I've been having trouble gaining, too. At 19 weeks, both babies were 10 oz. At 25 weeks Baby A was 1 lb 15 oz, Baby B was 1 lb 11 oz. MFM said both were within growth range so he wasn't worried.
    My OBs nurse recommended Ensures to get enough protein in :-)
    I was trying to gain 20 lbs by 20 weeks, didnt make it. I almost have 20 lbs now....
    Good luck! :-)

  • I only gained 32 pounds and my boys were born totaling 13 lbs. I don't think your weight gain will be tied to their sizes.

    They were almost a pound different in weight when born.

    Just eat frequently throughout the day.

    #1 IVF/ICSI 4/2/12 = 2 x 7-cell and 1 x 5-cell transferred (3dt) = BFP!!

  •  I have only gained 8 pounds but I started out heavy... my MFM told me that gettting in more protein was way more important than just calories.  So I have been working on getting more in.  More meat and greek yogurt is helping me.

    My babies at my 23 week scan were 1.5 and 1.7lbs and in the 50% percentile for weight.  I go next week so hoping to see they packed on some weight.

    @cls78 as of a week ago, they are still behind by the same amount. But they are getting a little different in size, but still on a forward track. So at 26w3d A was 2lbs1oz & B was 1lb14oz. 10% different but still both in the 42-50 percentile. So docs are happy!

    Glad to see your good update!!!
