Fat Deposition in Obese Pregnancy

Lean women gained more percent body fat than obese women (36) but gained similar amounts of fat mass. Butte et al. (13) found that fat deposition differed between BMI groups with 5.3 kg fat deposited in women with low BMI (£19.8 kg/m2), 4.6 kg in women with normal BMI (19.8-26.0 kg/ m2), and 8.4 kg in women with high BMI (>26 kg/m2). A greater gain in percentage fat, absolute fat mass, and absolute lean body mass was also seen during pregnancy in adolescents than in mature women (44). Using skinfold thickness measurements it was observed that lean women gained most of their adipose tissue peripherally, whereas obese women did not (36).
