Im cucurrently 27 wks with id twins. Ever since I started having my regular scans both babies have measured consistently around the 90th centile for hc and ac. This wk I asked if they were using singleton charts to track progress, which they are. Has anybody else's los measured big the whole way through or did growth slow down. Don't get me wrong I'm really pleased they are growing so well, just freaking out that they are going to be big babies. I'm already struggling with the size of my bump and can't for the life of me see how I'm going to manage another 10 wks. Everything feels really tight already I can't see how my body can stretch much more.

Mine measured 2 weeks bigger all the way through. They also used singleton growth charts. My girls were estimated to be 5lb4 & 5lb8 at 34+4. Had them at 34+5 and they weighed those exact weights. My bump was massive.

DT1 always measured more or less spot on, but DT2 was always a couple of weeks ahead - 90th centile for AC and FL I think. She was 7lb13 at 38w. DT1 was 5lb5. They were pretty much what they were estimated at at 36w (think DT2 was est at 8lb2 actually) so growth definitely tailed off at the end.

Both of mine measured above 90th centile according to singleton charts throughout the pregnancy. They were born at 39 weeks. T1 was 7lb8 and T2 was 8lbs. smile

Mine measured big throughout and at 37wks DT1 was 7.7lb and DT2 7lb. I demanded to be induced as my two older dcs were both 10lbs and consultant agreed. I think that the twins would have just kept growing!!!
