    I have kind of had this in the back of my mind since my last appt that maybe this is something I should be worried about....

    The Gest. Age of the babies at that time should have been 22.4weeks.

    Baby A is the boy and Baby B is the girl.

    Baby A is measuring at 23.3weeks, 6 days ahead
    Baby B is measuring at 22.1weeks, 3 days behind but that then makes 9 days behind Baby A.

    Baby A was est weight was 1.26 and Baby B was 1.05.

    Do you think this is anything I should be concerned about??

    I wouldnt be too concerned unless the doctor was. Alot of times the ultrasounds can be off, especially if the babies were moving around alot that day.

    Since your babies are fraternal b/g, they can be very likely to grow at different rates. I don't think there's any cause for concern as long as they continue to grow on their own "growth curve."

    Thanks for the reassurance ladies, I was thinking that was the case but just needed to hear it from someone else.

    I obviously have too much time on my hands on bedrest, thinking of things that could possibly go wrong or be wrong. urggghhhh!!!

    My OB was never concerned about our difference, which was usually about a week, until the peri actually found a reason for it. Especially since yours are definately fraternal, and genetically no more alike than normal bro/sis, there's probably no need at all for concern, as long as both continue to grow.
