I had a 22 week scan yesterday and while one of my twins is on the small side of normal the other is even smaller. and they want to do f/nightly scans to keep an eye on their growth. Just wondering if there is anything I should be eating to help them grow and put on some weight?

Foods to help my bubs put on weight

I was told lots of proteins *might* help when I was pregnant with dd. she was quite small. I don't know if it really did. She was 2.6kgs at birth. She was measuring almost 4 weeks behind on scans. So small but not teeny. At full term. Twins would be very different I assume.

Both my bubs were small and I had fortnightly growth scans though. I was told nothing in my diet would alter the growth rate which slowed a lot as my pregnancies progressed. With my second pregnancy I really limited my activity and the growth rate didn't really slow further after that. Could be total coincidence though.

I heard grapes are good.
I'm not saying this is healthy but I would do my own cold rock ice cream at home. I hit it hard during pregnancy and my DDs were 9lb3 and 8lb10...

I am currently 27 weeks and have been having weekly growth scans since 20 weeks. I lost my son last year due to Iugr at 16 weeks. The Professor I am under has encouraged me to eat lots of good quality chocolate. It has to do with keeping your glucose levels high. It sounds mad, but my bub has been putting on a steady weight gain since. My baby is currently 660grams so about the size of a 24 weeker. I wish you all the best.
