The third trimester of pregnancy is essential for fetal weight gain. This study aimed to investigate eating patterns, caloric intake and maternal nutrition status of the pregnant women during the third trimester and later delivered infants weighing 3,000-3,500 grams. The cohort study included 246 normal primigravidarum at the Antenatal Care Clinic (ANC) in seven hospitals in Bangkok. The instruments were a) Food Frequency Questionnaire, b) 24-hour food intake recall, and c) three-day food record. Maternal weight gain and body mass index were assessed. Factor analysis and varimax rotation were used to determine the food eating patterns. Eight distinct eating patterns were identified. The result revealed that three food eating patterns covering lean meat, rice and its product, peanut and bean, caloric intakes, weight gain and body mass index at 28, 32 and 36 weeks of gestation were significantly correlated with birth weight (p<0.05). It was recommended that food eating patterns, weight gain and body mass index be used for health promotion among pregnant women, particularly in the third trimester. Nursing intervention should encourage mothers to have an optimal daily intake for normal infant birth weight.
