How did you carry? And what (gender) did you have?

I'm supposedly having a girl (based only on one u/s at 19w4d).

Today someone told me that I'm carrying low so she thinks I'm having a boy...

So, how did you carry and what did you have?

I carried high, and more up-and-down than out, and had a baby girl. I don't think that it has so much to do with the baby's gender, and more that it is just how women in my family carry

I've heard so many times if you carry low you're having a boy...I don't know if it's true, I doubt it, but I did and I did have a boy. He was SO low through the whole pregnancy!

I carry middle with both and you can not tell from the back that I am prerg. It was the same way with ds1, although I have now dropped with this 1.

I'm short, so I carried all over by the end of it! And wide!
It has nothing to do with gender, that's an old wive's tale. It has to do with how your uterus positions itself and how your body adjusts

Re: How did you carry? And what (gender) did you have?

Hehe...I LOVE this. I carried very low, along with nearly all the other "boy" wives tales. Everyone but my mom and aunt thought we were having a boy...and SHE came out a girl. LOL (we didn't find out the sex)

Re: How did you carry? And what (gender) did you have?

with my son, i carried mid to low but was all out front like a basketball shape, in fact at 38 weeks i still had a noticeable waist and hips, and had quite a few surprised looks from strangers when i turned around b/c i didn't look pregnant from behind

with my daughter, i carried mid to high, but was wide, almost watermelon shaped and had no waist or hips by week 12 !!! and i most definitely looked pregnant from behind LOL

i was the same weight at the start of each pregnancy, so i was a "controlled study" ha ha ha
