    Hi

    I’m not sure if this has been asked in a previous thread, but how many weeks were you when you gave birth and what was the birth weight of your twins?

    I know there may not be a trend as such, and each pregnancy is very different and so this will impact the date of birth.

    However I am still really curious know. I am nearly 30 weeks pregnant and am due to go on maternity leave at 33 weeks, but I am thinking of dropping this down to 32 weeks.

    Thanks x

    I had them the day I turned 33 weeks, but I had been on bed-rest since 23 weeks, with cervical problems, so don't worry!

    Mine weighed: 4 lb 13 oz and 5 lbs 10 oz, which is great for babies born almost two months early. :)

    Thanks ladies.

    Fulltimemum - it is really useful to know how far others twins mums went, but there really is no trend. For most it seems to be anytime from 32 weeks.
