Hey everyone, I'm new here and was wondering what everyone's twins weighed at birth.



I had fraternal twin boys at 38wks weighing in at 7Ibs 13 and 8Ibs 13. I was told at the time they were the largest set of twins in our region. Anyone else had exceptionally large twins? At 40wksthey would have been 9.8 and 8.8 or thereabouts.



I have two older kids, the oldest a boy weighing 9Ibs 1 at 40wks. We expected larger twins, but not that big and certainly not as big as our big singleton lol.



The twins are 2 now and an absolute joy! Please share your stories xx

I had Identical twin boys August 30Th 2011. They were not supposed to be born until November 26Th. So, I was 27 weeks when I had them due to complications. "Diastolic Flow". Daniel weighed 2lbs 11oz and Noah weighed 1lb 11oz. Daniel was in the NICU for Three months and Noah was in the NICU for Eight months. Noah came off his oxygen over a month ago. He still has a feeding tube. He doesn't like to eat :/ I am hoping he will change that very soon so we can get rid of his feeding tube!

My B/G twins were born at 35 wks 6 days. He weighed in at 6 lbs. 14 oz and she weighed 5 lbs. 11 oz. They were extremely healthy, spent no time in NICU and we all went home 2 days later!
My oldest daughter was born at just under 39 weeks and weighed 8 lbs 11 oz.

Whoa! You are super mommy!
My B/G twins were delivered via repeat section at 36wks, 5days. Boy was 6lbs 4 oz and Girl was 5lbs even.I just kept praying she came out 5lbs so she wouldn't get transferred and that they could come home together. So she was listening :)
I carried my older son a day less than the twins, (36wks, 4days) and he was 7lbs, 3oz. He would have been around 9lbs had he gone full term.

I had a couple little beef cakes, too. My (38 wk) boys weighed in at 8 lbs 3 oz and 6 lbs 4 oz. Now, at 19 months, they are 5 lbs different at 20 and 25 lbs! Both healthy, just very different body types.

I had mine 5 weeks ago and little man weighed 6lb 9oz and little lady weighed 7lb I was 37wks when I had them and thought they were massive for twins.

My older 2 were 8lb1.5oz and 8lb11oz so guess if I had been left to get to 40wks the twins would've been bigger than them lol

Holy Moly mom now there is some big babies ;) My babies weighed in at 6 pounds 9 and 6 pounds 8 @ 39 weeks. Definetaly not "exceptionaly large" but happy healthy babes. My first pregnancy a singleton weighed 8 pounds 3 ounces @ 39 weeks and the twins u/s put them in very high percentiles for gestational age making us think they might be in the 7 pound + range but you know how u/s is an estimation not an exact weight. Congrats on healthy twins!
