Question

Due Date

Dear Doc,
I'd like to get an indication of what you'd predict if I were your patient.
My fist child was born at 37 weeks and was perfectly healthy and weighed 2.8kg.
I'm now pregnant with my second and he keeps measuring 1/2 weeks older than what his actual gestation is and I've already dilated ever so slightly (only 1cm but at 32 weeks now). Would you predict another early baby? What do you think the chances are that I'll go over my due date?
Thank you kindly

Impossible to predict, I'm afraid. Half a week difference in size is normal. Measurements cannot be accurate to more than a week or two.
