Growth U/S update...[xp]

I know U/S can be off a 1 lb either way, but .....

At my 36w1d U/S, my babies were measuring 6 lbs 11 oz (90th percentile) and 6 lbs 3 oz (75%). I think that's pretty good for twins. I wonder what they'll be if I keep them in the 12 more days the doctors want!

Even if it is off a little, at least I know they'll be over 5.5 lbs! That makes me feel good! Yahoo

That's great, Meg! My dr said she adds about a 1/2lb per week to baby's weight to estimate their birth weight. So, if you do carry them another 12 days, you could almost add another pound for each of them! My baby was the exact same weight as yours (6lbs 11oz) at my 36 week ultrasound too. You definitely are growing some healthy babies! I'm getting so excited...our board is about to have a baby explosion!!
