Study design

We studied 440 pregnant women (220 normal weights and 220 overweight) who completed by the SF-36 questionnaire Iranian version during at the first and the third trimester of pregnancy. Finally, pregnancy complications were assessed.

Results

Physical functioning, role limitation due to physical problems and Bodily pain was lower in overweight women than in normal weight women at the first trimester of pregnancy. The all domains of quality of life decreased during pregnancy and was lower in overweight than in normal weight pregnant women at the third trimester of pregnancy (P=0.001). The risks for preterm labor, gestational hypertension, pre-eclampsia, gestational diabetes, caesarian section and Macrosomia were higher for those who were overweight at the third trimester of pregnancy (P<0.05). Maternal BMI was associated with a higher risk for gestational hypertension, gestational diabetes, preterm labor, preeclampsia, emergency caesarian section and fetal macrosomia (P<0.05).

Overweight at the third trimester was related to low quality of life. This research demonstrates that maternal BMI was associated with increased risks for adverse pregnancy outcomes
