The authors analyzed the difference in weight gain and nutrition, according to the BMI before pregnancy. They divided 91 subjects into BMI group 1 (normal weight) and BMI group 2 (overweight) before pregnancy. In general, the BMI before pregnancy did not influence weight gain but, in the BMI group 2, the intakes of all of cholesterol, total fatty acids, vitamin B12, iron, and copper were significantly higher. Neither group exhibited sufficient intake of vitamin B1, vitamin B2, niacin, vitamin B6, folic acid, calcium, magnesium, iron, or zinc. Pre-pregnancy weight management and nutrition during pregnancy is very important.
