    My friend recently told me about an article that he read. It was about a study into ethnic minority pregnancies. I thought it was a very interesting study and that I should share it with you guys

    https://ije.oxfordjournals.org/cgi/content/full/33/1/107

    also there was an article about it in the metro a while ago

    My due date is tomorrow(the 24th) but if this study is correct I could have been due as of last friday. Also my midwife seems to think that I may give birth before 40 weeks (that hasn't materialised) as I have been having labour symtoms for nearly two weeks. In my first scan I was also told that the my due date may be a week or so before the one I have been given judging by the maturity of the fetus.

    All very interesting I think.
