Fundal Height Chart for Twins

Although there are various studies on symphysis-fundus height reference curves in singletons only few are reported in twin pregnancies

Estimated centiles and standard deviation per gestational week

Table Fundal Height Twins

* Estimated centiles (c) and S.D. per gestational week (GW). Measurement in centimeters.

Although mean fundal height is substantially greater in twin than singleton pregnancies, the value of the technique to detect growth disturbances in multiple pregnancies may be limited.
