  1. Data are organized according to maternal weight gain during pregnancy (GWG) and body mass index (BMI) at first trimester. Data are expressed as mean ± SEM. * Groups statistically different (p < 0.01) from the normal GWG group (11-18 kg) of the same BMI. Groups statistically different (p < 0.01) from the low GWG group (< 11 kg) of the same BMI. A difference between mother and cord blood of the corresponding group (p < 0.001) is indicated by #. All groups presenting differences are in bold characters.
