It means you are going to have a small baby with the attendant problems. However, even if they think the baby is not growing proeprly that may be wrong. I had twins and was induced at 36 weeks, partly becasue my blood pressutre was rising out of control, but also I was told my second twin was not growing properly. I had twin 1 -4 pounds 15 - (a bit of a shock as my first child had been 8 pounds 5) and I thought "that is the bigger one" when out popped twin 2, all 6 pounds 3 of her. They are now 18 and she is still bigger than he is.
