Pregnancy wantedness and adverse pregnancy outcomes: differences by race and Medicaid status.
TLDR
Mothers of very low birth weight infants were significantly more likely than those who had a normal-weight baby to report that they had felt unhappy about the pregnancy, and odds ratios associating these two unwantedness categories with low-birth-weight babies were higher among Medicaid recipients than among women not receiving Medicaid. Expand
The extent of pregnancy mistiming and its association with maternal characteristics and behaviors and pregnancy outcomes.
TLDR
Future research on pregnancy intention should examine the extent of mistiming and consider alternatives to traditional definitions of intendedness, as a woman's feelings about a pregnancy, her health behaviors during pregnancy and thus her pregnancy outcomes may vary according to whether her pregnancy is moderately or seriously mistimed. Expand
Pregnant women's perspectives on intendedness of pregnancy.
TLDR
The results question the assumption that intendedness of pregnancy is preferred among low-income women or that the pregnancies are "subintended." While interventions to increase intendedness focus on access to contraception, study participants reported no barriers to access as a reason for conception. Expand

TLDR
It is suggested that attitudes about pregnancy may be a psychosocial barrier to women obtaining early and continuous prenatal care and appropriate services provided to improve women's utilization of prenatal care. Expand
Comparison of two question sequences for assessing pregnancy intentions.
TLDR
Using a randomized crossover design, National Survey of Family Growth (NSFG) and Demographic and Health Survey (DHS) intendedness questions were asked in a 1993 survey of Arizona women, but young, unmarried respondents gave more "mistimed" responses on whichever question was asked later. Expand

Moves of wantedness based on women's feelings about their pregnancy may correlate more closely with important pregnancy outcomes than do traditional measures of intendedness. Expand
Pregnancy Intention and Pregnancy Happiness: Are They Different?
TLDR
Differentiating between pregnancy intention and happiness has practice implications for family planning and prenatal providers and additional research should further elaborate these distinctions. Expand
The measurement and meaning of unintended pregnancy.
TLDR
Research should focus on the meaning of pregnancy intentions to women and the processes women and their partners use in making fertility decisions and should prospectively address the impact ofregnancy intentions on contraceptive use. Expand
