    Default Twins measuring different sizes

    I had a scan yesterday at 6weeks and 3days, one twin is measuring right on time and the other is measuring 2 days behind. My fs saod that was ok, both heartbeats were nice and strong. Has this happened to anyone else?

    I think it happens with most twins. Mine measured different all the way through. But when they were born they were pretty close in size, and a friends measured different all the way through and when they were born one was big and one was tiny. The photos look amazing.

    Yep, normal.

    My girls always had a difference in sizes. When they were born there was 600g and 2cm difference between them.

    And now you would think DD3 is about 2yrs older than DD2. It's just that DD2 takes after the smaller people in my family while DD3 looks like she might end up taller than us!
