  1. β: standardized regression coefficient; PPA: preperitoneal adipose tissue; r2: coefficient of determination; SCA: subcutaneous adipose tissue; SFT: sum of the 4 skinfold thickness measurements (biceps + triceps + subscapular + suprailiac). Variables for adjusted analysis: infant sex, pregnancy duration, respective breastfeeding status, maternal pre-pregnancy BMI, AUC Glucose (OGTT) and gestational weight gain.
