Monitoring Movement and Health (MoM Health) is a longitudinal cohort study of objectively measured sedentary behavior and physical activity across pregnancy in 120 young women. This study is funded by the American Heart Association (17GRNT3340016) and is currently in follow-up (not recruiting). We hypothesize that sedentary behavior will increase across pregnancy and that higher sedentary behavior will be related to worse cardiovascular health, specifically elevated blood pressure and excessive gestational weight gain.  Other exploratory outcomes include gestational diabetes, preeclampsia, gestational hypertension, and birth complications along with determinants of sedentary behavior.
