32 weeks, twins with one stomach measuring small.


Hi
my twins up to now have been measuring the same. I had my 32 week scan today and they are now concerned as twin ones belly is measuring small. Every other measurement is ok other than her belly. Does anyone know why this could be?
Both babies are in their own sacs and have their own placenta.
I'm now on weekly scans to keep an eye on her measurements. The placenta is all ok and the blood running through is is fine plus the water around her is ok. My blood pressure is fine and no signs of GD or preaclampsia.
I'm obviously concerned as it was mentioned delivering them early if things didn't improve.
Any insight/advice would be great thanks!

One if mine had an odd stomach measurement because his brother was squishing his tummy. Did you have it at a MFM or regular OB?

I don't know about the stomach but I am currently pregnant with twins at 29 weeks and they thought I was going in to labour last week but luckily things stopped but they did say that it wouldn't be a problem and the babies would be fine if born now. 32 weeks will be fine for them to deliver at least they are keeping a good eye on you now

Amjon- I had my scan done at the hospital. She did all the measurements then plotted it on the graph then came back n had a second go at measure the stomach just to make sure that she hadn't made a mistake.

Cass86- I was told if they were born now they would prob a some difficulties breathing n may need oxygen. The would also have problems feeding and may have trouble regulating their body temperature. But I don't think there should be anything major or longer term, but it's still worrying x

Did it look like a perfect circle? They redid mine but she said she knew it wasn't right as brother was squishing him. We had all our at the MFM who is very experienced with multiples. If it was one odd reading I probably wouldn't worry about it.
