Bonjour, Knox Leon and Vivienne Marcheline!

Viva les enfants!

The long-awaited Jolie-Pitt twins have been born happily and healthily in France via C-section Saturday night. Despite all the rumors of twin girls, it seems she was actually gestating babes of differing gender!

With weights of 5 lbs. each, as a twin mom, my first curiosity is how many weeks and days she was along. Ours were born at 36 weeks and 5 days; 5lbs. 14oz., and 4lbs. 14oz. [Her unconfirmed due date bandied around the tabloids was August 19th, making her around 35 weeks-ish...]

Anyone care to take a guess as to her gestation duration? (or to share your stats?)

Congrats to the new doubly-blessed parents!

Looks like they already know their way around a double stroller!

No guess here on the gestation but I was wondering if that was the Chicco stroller - it looks a lot like it!!!! Can't wait until the 16th!

just read this on msn.com

My guess is somewhere around 36 weeks.

Mine came at 38 weeks, 5lbs, 10oz each, and 18inches long each. Fraternal. I measured 54 inches around the middle ;)

I had Abby & Emma at 32 weeks (cord entanglement) so they had to come early. Abby weighed 3.14 and Emma was 3.8 and 19 inches long. Abby & Emma are monoamniotic & monochronic twins and their cords became entangled but were born healthy & happy!

Can't say that I have a guess on theirs, but
Here's the stats on my guys:
They were 38wks. 3 days gestation.
Jack was 7lbs. 2 oz. and 21 1/2 in.
Quent was 6 lbs. 13 oz. and 20 1/2 in.
They were carried by my cousin as a gestational surrogate and she did beautifully throughout, delivered as a planned c-section.

I had my boys at 34 weeks and they were 2.168kg & 2.240kgs (both just under 5 lbs) - almost the same size as her two, so my guess is around the 34 week mark?!?!

MommyJ said...

I carried mine 38 weeks and 2 days... 7. lbs. 2 ounces, and 7 lbs. 6 ounces. I was mucho humongo.

My twin girls were born at 36 weeks and weighed 4# 10oz and 5# 18" * 18 1/4". My belly measured around 52", gave up after that--lol!

My guess is she (Angelina) was around 36-37wks.

I'm guessing around 35 weeks.

Marisol & Flynn were born at 37 weeks 1 day and were 6lbs 6 oz and 6lbs 14oz

Ok, I am going to be a "spaz" here and say she was 35w4d (not sure if we will get an exact. LOL)
I had Emma & Will at 35w exactly and they were 4lbs 2oz and 4lbs 12oz and I know mine were little and when she had Shiloh she was a bigger baby...so, that's my guess.
I don't think she seemed pregnant long enough to be further along. I think they announced a pregnancy in January, right? My guess is she was around 10 weeks or so then, so....that would bring her right in the 34/35 week mark...
(ok, ca you tell I am a bit into the Jolie-Pitts? LOL)

Our little ones were born at 37 weeks and 3 days one was 6lbs,14oz the other was 6lbs 9 oz. I am guessing she was about 35 weeks, considering she said they were due sometime in August

My guess is 35w2d. My twins were born at 37w1d and were 6 lb 3 oz and 5 lb 6 oz and were 18.5" and 17.5". Luckily, my little boy was bigger than my girl. ;)

Congrats to them and how cool that they're donating the $ from the twins' first pics to charity! I think the first pics of my twins are worth $10 million bucks too!! :)

OKay I have to guess. I guess 35 wks 6days. That is what I was and mine were 4.7 and 5.2. I would love to Angelina to start joining some online twin groups or blogs. My dream is that one of theirs marries one of mine and then I can just sit and stare at the Pitts for the rest of my days. It should be a crime to be that good looking.

Cheryl- you have a great blog. Thank you for the compliment on mine. I see some of my friends are your friends so we should be friends. LOL

No clue on how many weeks she was but our twins were born at 34w6d and weighed 5 lb 5 oz (girl) and 5 lbs 14.5 oz (boy)

Despite being good weights, they still both spent 18 days in the NICU.

My boys were born at 36 weeks and were 6 lbs 2 oz and 7 lbs 1 oz. Christine

i'd guess that her's were around 36wks since most drs. don't think its good to have them sooner if at all possible and if France is anything like Australia (where we had our's) then they don't want to interfere with the pregnancy unless necessary.
We were told that our's would go all the way to 40 unless something happened. Something did, I started getting high blood pressure and swollen feet so they did a c-section at 38wks - Marianna was 6lbs 2oz and Jonah was 5lbs 7oz.
