  1. * Odds ratios corresponding to one standard-deviation increase in BMI, waist circumference, and waist-to-hip ratio. Sample size varies by the associations, because of the missing information of anthropometric indices.
  2. **Adjusting for age at pregnancy, alcohol drinking and cigarette smoking.
