Many things change during pregnancy.  Some women may become temporarily diabetic or anemic.

Another common condition is high blood pressure.  A new study looked at whether or not magnesium supplementation could support healthy blood pressure.

A group of pregnant women were given either 300mg of magnesium or placebo starting at week 25 of pregnancy.  At week 37, those taking the magnesium were less likely to see rises in blood pressure than those getting placebo.
