What is the average weight gain if mommy is carrying twins. My Syd is just over 6 weeks IP now and has picked up 8g so far - just want to make sure she stays healthy and that everything is on track....

Thank you....

Iv never really kept track. My pickle may have dropped one or 2 in pouch. Cricket has twins maybe 2 weeks in pouch. I could do a short study and see what my girls do. But if you avg each joey being at 12 grams thats at least a 24 gram jump. Just in joey weight.

OK weighed my 2 girls. This will give you an idea but no female is the same. Some are bigger some smaller and some will gain more then others. I dont have pre joey weights as im bad about it but ill weigh each wed for you.

Pickle has 1 in pouch about 2 weeks along. 80 grams even.

Cricket has twins about 3 weeks in pouch. 87 grams.

Pickle is a bit bigger then cricket but i would say they weigh close without joeys. Where pickle is longer then cricket cricket makes up in mass.

My females typically gain between 16-20 grams right before joeys come Oop. My most recent female that had joeys gained a total of 18 grams. She has joeys in pouch again and has gained 12 grams already. I would guess she is about 5 maybe 6 weeks along. I didn't keep track of the exact day :/ but I do weigh all of my gliders weekly. One of my other girls who is about 6 weeks in with twins has gained 13 grams. Not sure if this helps, but I figured I'd share since I do weigh every Sunday.

Awesome, this helps a lot - thank you! My female gained 10g at the 6 week ip mark, but am due to weigh her again tomorrow so I will post again then. Her joeys have definitely grown in the last week..... It is so precious to watch the joeys moving around in her pouch! It looks like her pouch has been hijacked by little aliens!!!

Is it correct in saying that the joeys almost double in size in the last few (two) weeks before they come OOP?

She has gained another 6g putting her at a total weight gain of 16g at the 7 ip week mark. She picked up those 6g between Thursday and Saturday! Her pouch slit has started to open more but I still havent had the honour of seeing anything peek out yet..... Cant wait!

CLo1227, thank you for doing your short study and keeping me posted! It is soooo interesting.......

I think the joeys really jump in weight in the last 2-3 weeks. I will weigh again on wed but i doubt they will have picked up much weight yet.

Well Pickle does not have a joey in pouch. I must have felt wrong and felt her swelling glands due to the joeys not nursing as much. Once she drops them in pouch ill do a weight study on just her. My scale must have been off cause today she weighs 91 which is where her normal non joey weight is.

Cricket im weighing a bit late weighs in at 91 grams at 4 weeks in pouch. Ill weigh again wed to put us back on tack with cricket.

Awesome! Thank you for the update! My girls joey's fur is getting darker now, so they should be coming out within the week! Its my first time so the excitement is boiling over! Had had the honour of seeing tails and bits of bodies and butts in the last few days an have taken so many videos and pics! Was watching one of the twins suckling and it was overwhelmingly beautiful.....

It's soo exciting when you start getting glimpses of the joeys. I completely forgot to post the weights. I will try to make time to post tomorrow. I do weigh weekly and keep records of it. I've just had a ton going on.

My white mosaic gave me a leu and a standard last time. She has some in pouch again. Just a few more weeks. My other mosaic pairs have not blessed me with joeys yet. I have a feeling they will soon. They are powdering out soo pretty though. It's amazing how they change.

Okay. I just went and grabbed my weight records. The first girl I was referring to in my earlier post (that had gained 12 grams) gained a total of 13grams the week after that post and then yesterday she was at a total weight gain of 17 grams.

The other girl that had gained 13 grams stayed at 13 grams of weight gain the week after and last week weighed in 17 grams heavier than her normal weight.

Its all so exciting! Thank you for sharing your weights and chatting about your babies! It seems the average weight gain for twins is around 20g? Its also interesting to note that there are periods where their weight stays the same and then suddely jumps a few grams, like the babies have growing spurts!

Lol! This afternoon, the twins tails were all curled up outside the pouch and the one twin had its whole arm tucked ouside moms pouch!

Looking forward to more updates on your girls....

My girls are doing great smile

The first girl is at 19g of weight gain. She is going to gain more than she did with her last set of twins.

My other girl is at 18g of weight gain. Her belly bumps are quite large now. Although I thought that she only had about 1 week or so until oop, but I'm wondering if she actually has two weeks left before any joeys appear. Only because, I've yet to get any sneak peeks of body parts.

Glad to hear your darling is doing well. I bet you're excited!

I waited a week from sat and cricket is at 95 grams. So there was a 4 gram weight gain at 5 weeks in pouch. I wish i had a before joey weight so id know joey weight verse mommy weight. Maybe when pickle drops in pouch Ill be able to do one on her for a more accurate study. But each joey and each mom will be diff. We can only get avg weights.
