A woman's weight before and during pregnancy may influence her infant's birth weight, Norwegian researchers said. Data on 58,383 pregnant women showed that an increase of 1 kg in pre-pregnancy BMI was associated with a 25.9 g increase in birth weight, while for every 1 kg gain during pregnancy, birth weight increased by 22.4 g.
