28 week growth scan concerns advice please ladies

Anyone been in the same boat? Had growth scan today and twin 1 who was on 50th percentile at 20 week scan is now below 10th percentile and twin 2 who was on 50th percentile is just over 10th percentile. Twin 1 estimated weight 2lb2oz, twin 2 2lb7oz. Consultant concerned enough to get me back next week for rescan and following week too and had to stay and have trace done today. Trace was fine on both, placenta flow was fine on both and fluid level fine around both.

Hi Gingerbean, I know you must be worried but it's good that they are keeping a close eye. Do your twins share a placenta? You probably know that I had problems with one of my twins growth which was down to ttts, but this only happens when there is only one placenta. One of my twins is still measuring smaller after the laser treatment and is just over the 10th where as the other is on the 50th percentile. That is an improvement from the 5th percentile which the smaller one was. All other checks today were fine and they said that the smaller one should gradually catch up a bit but likelihood will be smaller.
I know it's really worrying but by the sound of things all other things with babies seemed well and they will keep a close eye on you. Xx

Hi gingerbean

Didn't want to read and run, I didn't have twins but had a growth scan just before 30 weeks due to bleeding and ds was 2lbs so sounds like your babies are a good weight.

Thanks for your replies,

Had a scan at 30 weeks and both have continued to grow along the same line so they are not as concerned. Twin 1 on 7th percentile and twin 2 on 10th percentile so both still small at 2lb12oz and 3lb3oz but growing non the less!

How are you and the girls doing Clarabell? My twins are di/di so don't share anything xx

That's great news, you must be so relieved! Have been thinking about you over the past few days because I noticed you hadn't been on much so really happy to hear they are still growing!
I'm doing fine thanks, a lot more chilled out now but starting to get a bit uncomfortable although I'm allowed to get out a wee bit more now so enjoying the nice weather :o)
Really pleased to hear things are progressing ok xx

Just a quickie before me day starts as normal, in chaos! I am not sure what chart your hospital is using but Tamba reported a while ago that hospitals were use singleton growth charts for twin pregnancies which wasn't accurate at all. It may be that your hospital is using the same......very annoying as it causes undue worry x
