  • glad the new dr confirmed that. Stupid old doctor shouldnt have put such a fear in you. Its very normal for twins NOT to weigh the same.

  • My brother and sister are twins. They didn't weigh the same when they were born. I think there was like 1/2 lb difference in their weight.

  • My twins didn't weigh the same at birth. But my Dr. scared the crap out of me by telling me that they were going to be huge babies! They weren't. I carried them for 38 weeks and ds was 6 lbs. and my dd was 5 lbs. & 15 oz.. Now there's a 30 lb difference between them with Dd being taller and weighing more. Sometimes girls just grow faster than boys. Don't stress. Just take care of yourself so they're born healthy. ;-)

  • I had boy twins, fraternal, own sacs and placentas. They never weighed the same when I had my ultrasounds. Totally normal. They are now 6 months and still one is bigger then the other.
