In brief: Obesity
Obesity, defined as a bmi >35, can often involve the abdomen or trunk of one's body.
This form of "central obesity" tends to be more dangerous in terms of the risks for developing diabetes, sleep apnea, and heart disease. Such a person might look pregnant in certain clothes.

In brief: Yes
By definition, central obesity affects the mid-portion of the body, most noticeably the belly.
Therefore, if you have this, it may indeed look likenyou are carrying a BUN in the oven. Central obesity is also linked to other problems, such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease, so talk to your doctor about an excercise and diet program to get leaner and healthier.
