Individuals with a high PPBMI (body mass index ≥23.0 kg/m2) and an excessive GWG had a 3.28-fold (95% confidence interval: 1.04–10.4) and 3.79-fold (95% confidence interval: 1.05–13.61) increased risk of preeclampsia, respectively, after adjustment for age, hypertension history, and GWG/PPBMI. © 2020 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc.
