Cellulite and Weight Gain During Pregnancy
If you are prone to cellulite, a non-medical term for fatty deposits that cause dimpling on your skin, your behind and your thighs may end up looking like a bowl of cottage cheese during pregnancy. Pregnancy weight gain and how it gets distributed on your body is yet another aspect of the process that you don't have complete control over.
When it comes to pregnancy weight gain, so much boils down to body type and genetics, so cellulite can strike even if you exercise and eat healthfully throughout your pregnancy. Like stretch marks, varicose veins, and all of the other pregnancy side effects you weren't ready for, there isn't much you can do except wait it out.
Happily, as you gradually return to you pre-pregnancy weight, the cellulite will probably go away on its own.
