Twins Stopped Growing at 32 Weeks?

by Sarra

I am 32 weeks 4 days pregnant with fraternal twin boys. I had an ultrasound at 29 weeks and everything looked great. Babies were growing well, one meausring about 3 lbs and other about 3 lbs 7 oz.

At my 30 week ob app. I was given the steroid shot. Other than the braxton-hicks, and normal pregnancy symptoms, I feel like I've stopped growing. Some people say I'm small for carrying twins and I know that's just opinions, but I feel the same way. I look about the same as 37 weeks (when I delivered) with my last baby. My clothes I was wearing about 4 weeks ago, still fit the same, and I guess I'm just worrying did the babies stop growing and that's why I'm not getting bigger?

Am I being paranoid or can this happen? I've heard some women's uterus' just stop growing, but is that for real?

People tell me this to, but when you look at all the bellys of women with twins. i noticed that they all look like a regular pregnancy until about 30 weeks, thats when you start to look ginourmous

Also small

I was small my entire pregnancy and got comments about it constantly that made me feel horrible and self concious. I did everything to gain more including drinking 2 weight gain ensures a day and could not put it on. The funny thing is they grew just fine! They are 8 months old now and despite being born at 35 weeks at 5 lbs each, they are now 22 lbs and in the 95% of everything.

You'll be fine. The real problem is losing it afterward!

don't worry

Don't worry. Your babies didn't stop growing. One thing I did was take a picture of my belly each week in a plain white t-shirt standing sideways. That way I could compare because there were a lot of weeks I felt the same way. Your babies will be just fine - promise!
