  • EDD- Estimated Due Date

    I have heard a lot of doctors change twin pregnancy due dates so that either 36 or 37 weeks is full term instead of 40 weeks. That is probably the case. Best wishes!

  • Depends,you could be measuring farther along which changes your EDD, or most women who carry twins deliver early.The only way to know why they changed your EDD,is to ask.


    Tell me more about your visit today, maybe that is where your answer is?

  • you could have been moved up for a single baby. it's because of size. my son was moved up 3 weeks because of that. if you were having twins i am sure your doctor would tell you

  • Go with the changed due date. They changed it for a reason. Call your ob. They will know :)

  • like four weeks ago they did an ultrasound and they thought it was only one baby. then i went to my high risk doctor and they told me i was having twins and changed the date to dec 26 becuz the babies were pretty big. and plus im not sure of my last period.
