It is completely normal for the babies to measure several days to even a week from each other.
I honestly don't remember what mine were measuring at the point, but Baby A was always a head of baby B. He was my bigger baby at birth and still is my bigger baby. He out weighs her by 2 lbs and 1 1/2 inches
Congrats on the girls! My girls were measuring about a week apart too at first. They stayed that way until about 24 weeks, then the gap got bigger. The doctors didn't worry until the gap between them got bigger. That's when the issues with Arianna's cord became apparent. What happened with my girls, I believe, is unusual. Don't worry about it now, just enjoy the pregnancy!
I don't think it's that much of a concern at this point, but the doctors should monitor the difference as the babies grow. There is a percentage (for the life of me I can't remember it) that as long as the growth falls within that range, everything is okay.
It's actually quite common that twins are measuring a few days from each other, mine were never really 100% together growth wise.. I just went for frequent ultrasounds to make sure that the gap was never bigger than 10%. I'm sure everything is ok, hang in there!
Mine never measured together not even from the beginning. Also now that they are almost 3, one is 3 inches taller and 10lbs heavier. They are just two different little boys When they were born they weren't even close lol Ash- 6.5 and Quinn- 7.11
I tell ya if I wasn't there to see it myself I wouldnt believe they were twins

It's nothing to worry about. Heck, Cameron is measuring 3 weeks ahead and Kiefer is measuring only 1 week ahead. They are 2 weeks apart! Yet they are both about the same weight adn within range of a normal size and weight. If you are concerned, ask the doctor if they are both within the correct range.
