I'm just under 4'11", was 88 pounds when I got pregnant... and carried twins til 37 weeks AND was induced. ;) Your size is not a reliable indicator on if you will deliver early or not... neither is a 'gut feeling'. Is it possible you will go into labor early? Absolutely. Is there any way anyone can predict it accurately at this point? Absolutely not.

You are not that short that it would prevent you from being able go to term, or at least 37 weeks. I have seen moms with dwarfism carry to term. I am only 5'4 and carried two weeks past me due date. If you are very petite and have a very tiny pelvis, you may not be able to have a vaginal delivery but I would not assume that is the case. Large tall women can deliver early and short tiny women can carry to term.
ETA I have even seen tiny women carry twins to 36 weeks and weight combined 11 lbs.
