How accurate were your estimated scan weights?


Just wondering how accurate your EFWs were in comparison to the weights of your babies at birth? I know they can be inaccurate but just wondering if this is more so with twins as scanning them towards the end can prove difficult with the lack of space

I had an ultrasound the week before I had my boys and It estimated them at 4lbs 1 oz and 4 lbs 3 oz. They were born 4 lbs 6.5 oz and 4 lbs 13.8 oz. So not too bad of a difference with a week later.

At my 36 week scan , one was estimated 5.10 and the other 6.11
A week later at 37 weeks they were born both 5.13.So they got one twin pretty much right at the other not so right.

I can't remember exactly but what was a cause for concern was no one spotted the 22% weight discordance between my twins.

I had a scan done just after 9 am and they were born just after 7pm later the same day.

They said my boy would be 3lb 15oz and he was 4lb 6oz.
Girl was estimated at 5lb and she was 4lb 2.5oz.

Both of mine were estimated at similar weights throughout and at 32 weeks, 5lb ish. They were born at 35 plus 6 weeks, Thomas was born at 7lb 6 and Elsie at 3lb 6. She was never anything like 5lb. X
