Hello,
Your sonogram report appears to be quite normal and there is no need for worry. It is quite common for twin babies to grow individually in the third trimester, so there is a natural discrepancy in weight.The EDD should be determined by the 20th week, as the weight discrepancy at this stage makes it difficult for the EDD to be predicted. Take care.
