Look at dr. Gardosi's website on customized birthweights for your own characteristics.
True growth restricted infants have increased risks for cardiovascular and metabolic diseases later in life (diabetes mellitus, hypertension).

In brief: March of Dimes

Try the March of Dimes website.
The MOD is focused on decreasing prematurity because of complications at birth and afterwards. You can also try the NICHD site and look for prematurity. Do not over-interpret the articles-they are there only to make you aware of some complications-not to predict the future!
