At my appointment today the OB (not mine, a sub, booo ) told me that my girls were measuring small and scheduled me for a growth u/s on Feb 1. They were 11.5 and 11.7 oz at my 22 week u/s. Do any of you remember how big or small your babies were at that point? Did any of you have growth issues with your twins? I am freaking out

Mine were measuring 10 oz at their 20 week ultrasound. They weren't concerned even though they measured "small". They ended up being 5 lbs 8 oz (Madelyn) and 5 lbs 13 oz (Malia) when they were born. They were still considered "small" for the gestational age (37 weeks), but they weren't worried about it. I think Madelyn would have weighed more except she had two BM's after she was born before they weighed her.
I hope it is nothing in your situation. I'm sure it is nothing and your babies will be just fine.

I looked back but don't know how much mine weighed at that age. I ended up with u/s almost every week because there was concern about TTTS and with their little bodies shutting down. They were, and still are, very long and skinny. Their legs were in the 90% and their abdomens in the 20%. My dr. wanted to make sure they were okay because of those discrepancy in those measurements. I remember being freaked out after many ultrasounds. I kept walking away feeling like something was super wrong, then I'd come here and people would calm my nerves.
Hopefully everything is fine and your babies continue to grow, just at their own pace.
Thank you peimum for my siggie

I had an u/s at 20w4d and both girls were measuring 13 oz. I go again on Friday for another u/s, I will let you know what their weights are. One thing to remember is the weights depend on how accurate the measurements were and the accuracy can change depending on the tech doing the u/s and the u/s machine. As long as they keep growing at an acceptable rate, I would try not to worry too much about what their sizes are compared to other babies.
Was it the OB doing the scan or a tech? Are you going to a Peri or a MFM dr for the growth scan?
I know the scans my OB does were not as accurate as the one that was done by the tech at the MFM dr's office or the MFM dr himself. That is where all my growth scans will be at. I wouldn't worry until you have your growth scan...then you can go from there.
