  1. Data presented as mean (95 % CI)
  2. a Difference in weight between “active-less active” group” and “active-active” group. Multilevel repeated linear mixed model, adjusting for maternal age, pre-pregnancy BMI, maternal height, educational level, pre-pregnancy Norwegian fit for delivery (NFFD)-diet score, pre-pregnancy physical activity, pre-pregnancy smoking, nausea, gestational length at delivery and being randomised to the intervention group in the NFFD trial
  3. b overall group effect was observed for the four time points together (p = 0.008)
