Abstract

A small number of relatively small studies have found greater gestational weight gain to be associated with greater offspring body mass index (BMI; in kg/m(2)), but whether this association is caused by intrauterine mechanisms or by shared genetic and environmental risk factors for adiposity is unclear.
