I have identical twins girls, who are 2 yrs now and are both about 35lbs. I had them at 38 wks one weighed 8lbs 11oz and the other was 8lbs 3oz. They were huge for being twins and I am only 5'1 so I was really huge. They were almost 17lbs between the 2 of them

I have boy/girl twins born at 36 week 5 days. My son was 6 lb 1 oz and daughter was 4 lb 8 oz. Through out my whole pregnancy my daughter was always 20-30% smaller and now at 2 months old he weighs 10 1/2 lbs and she weighs 8 lbs 6 ounces.

They thought we had that twin to twin transfusion syndrome. that scared the crap out of us but we got through it. and delivered two healthy and big babies

Not even going to try to take the time to read everybody else's responses. My girls were born at 36 weeks 6 days by c-section because one of them was breech. Doctor would have let me go natural otherwise. Anyway, they will be 18 months in less than a week. The first one was 6lbs 4.5 ozs, and the second one was 5 lbs 7.6 ozs. I'd say we did pretty good for twins. (By the way, I was totally miserable and ready for them to be born by the end of the pregnancy)

Hiyee! I have identical 4 year old twins boys. They are so identical that even their birth weight were identical - exactly 5lbs 7 oz each! Even head circumference were the same. They only differed in length.(P/S we use the metric system so their birth weight were 2.567kg each!)

I had fraternal twin girls at 36 weeks and they both weighed the same 5lbs and 8ozs and they were only 1/2 inch apart from being the same length. And now one is about a pound heavier than the other but they are still about 1/2 inch apart as far as length.

I have a boy and girl who are now 16 yrs. old. They were born early so the doctors took my girl first since she was the smallest and the one they were worried most about. She weighed 3lbs 1 oz. My boy weighed 4lbs 4 oz. The doctors ended up determining that I had conceived them 2 weeks apart and so my daughter who was born a minute before her brother is the oldest but was technically 2 weeks younger than he was.
