Methods: Fifty-seven women participated in this study and followed until delivery. 19 women were over obese (BMI >30 kg/m2), 14 women were obese (BMI ≥26-30 kg/m2) and the 24 women had normal weight (BMI>18.5-23 kg/m2). Maternal demographic data, obstetric and neonatal outcomes from each group were compared to each other. Relative risk and 95% confidence interval (CI) were calculated. Conclusion: Our findings specify that high maternal weight wasrelated with a significantly higher risk of GDM
