Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Presence or absence of at least one adverse event related to or possibly related to nelfinavir of Grade 2 or greater severity as defined by the DAIDS Table for Grading of Severity of Adult Adverse Experiences in the gastrointestinal or hepatic category [ Time Frame: 32 Weeks ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Development of primary or active site protease and nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor-associated resistance mutations assessed using standard HIV genotype test on maternal plasma samples [ Time Frame: 32 Weeks ]
  2. Presence or absence of at least one adverse event of Grade 3 or 4 severity in the hematologic, cardiovascular or metabolic categories defined by DAIDS Table or in the dermatologic category as defined by the Supplemental Toxicity Table [ Time Frame: 32 Weeks ]
  3. Adverse pregnancy events which cannot be directly attributed to another cause other than study treatment after consultation with Pfizer Clinician and Site Investigator [ Time Frame: 32 Weeks ]
  4. Adherence assessed using the NIAID ACTG Adherence Modules and by returned medication counts [ Time Frame: 32 Weeks ]
  5. 12-hour pharmacokinetic evaluation of nelfinavir [ Time Frame: 32 Weeks ]
  6. Maternal plasma HIV RNA [ Time Frame: 32 Weeks ]
  7. Immunologic response as measured by CD4 and CD8 cell count [ Time Frame: 32 Weeks ]
