Birth weights of offspring of 105 female, monozygotic twin pairs discordant in birth weight were studied. No significant differences were found when offspring of the larger twin were compared with offspring of the smaller twin. The results do not support the hypothesis that in utero effects on females associated with low birth weight will influence their subsequent chance of having low birth weight offspring.
