  1. The associations between sleep complaints and a number of other pregnancy-related symptoms among the 277 women who reported one or more “moderate or severe sleep complants”. For each pregnancy-related symptom the results of five logistic regression analyses are reported: unadjusted, adjusted separately for age and sociodemographic characteristics (Block I), adjusted for physical and mental health status and resources (Block II), adjusted for reproductive background (Block III), and adjusted for all three blocks simultaneously. Associations with a p-value < 0.001 were considered statistically significant and marked with *
