Regular antenatal follow-up was carried out. Among the two groups, Numeric variables were compared using the unpaired Student's t-test. For pair comparisons, paired t-test was applied. A chi-square test or an exact Fisher test was used to compare categorical variables between groups. All analyzes were bipolar and P <0.05 was taken statistically substantial. The software used is statistical version 6 (Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA: Stat Soft Inc., 2001) and Graph Pad Prism (San Diego, California, USA: Graph Pad Software Inc., 2007).
