Gut microbiota changes during pregnancy

Last month saw publication of the Human Microbiome Project Consortium detailing the breadth and depth of the human microbiome. http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/v486/n7402/full/nature11234.html  This month in Cell there is an interesting article describing what happens to gut microbiota during pregnancy. Host remodeling of of the gut microbiome and metabolic changes during pregnancy.  While cause and effect still need to be teased apart, it appears that late in pregnancy the gut microbiome of pregnant females appears more similar to changes seen in individuals with metabolic syndrome.
