Those who have had twins- at how many weeks were your babies born and how big were they?

I'm just curious. I've had two friends have twins (one yesterday) and they both mentioned at one point that twins grow faster than singletons and are bigger for their gestational age, but that doesn't seem to have been true for their babies.

  • That's about what my friends were and I think she was around 37-38 weeks, whatever is considered full term for twins.

  • My daughter's twins were 7 weeks early, weighed 3 lbs 5 oz and 3 lbs 11 oz. They spent 2 months in NICU but are fine now at nearly 5.

  • My mom was 38 weeks and we were each over 6 pounds

    Same with my MIL when she had her daughters.
