Yep this! My sister and I carry very different from our mother. We are both tall and slender and our mom is shorter. We both carried low at first then a clean round bump later but my mom carried higher and popped more. I don't think you can guess based on bump

Please tell her that you want to remain team green and to not tell you. I am somehow able to "guess" gender with pretty accurate results. To the point that I don't tell team green friends. I don't thinki use how you carry as part of it. More just a feeling. Weird.

Re: Can you ladies give me your opinions please!

My two girls : one high, one low, one a decent amount of movement and other not a lot of movement, one no back pain til back labor and other a good amount of back pain and crampy labor, sicker than a dog for the first 1/2 of pregnancy so only rice and bland eating, and pee like every 5 mins with one and not as frequent but still a lot for the other.

my 3rd here is a boy: High like one of my girls, moves constantly, no morning sickness at all and no back pain, and I don't have to pee like crazy.

with my second we all thought boy since in my hips the whole time but no a girl. My sil with 5 boys and 3 girls now said it too.

Heartbeat rate and all the other myths seems to be hit and miss for us not that I have tried them all. I even asked my ob about boys being bigger and he said that girls are not boys even though I am running on the big side for the due date given.

One neighbor/friend said that all known people said girls and others unknown she met said boys for both and both were boys.

I have met some that were sick with boys not girls and others that it didn't matter gender on sickness.

Re: Can you ladies give me your opinions please!

This is my 3rd boy, and my first I carried really high, and the next two I've carried avg. I do get a belly sooner with each one, which is pretty normal. I've carried all of them out front. Symptoms have varied with each pregnancy (morning sickness, heartburn, leg cramps, etc.).
I'm A, married to my wonderful husband, and mommy to D (6/2007), N (4/2010), and newbie T (2/2013).

I'm pregnany with my third and all of mine have been totally different. Mine went boy, girl, boy, and this pregnancy is much more like my last one (and they're different sexes) than the first. It's all wive's tales.

Re: Can you ladies give me your opinions please!

I am preggo with my fourth...this is a boy, and my previous three were all girls. I carried my first one differently all the rest the same. I have always carried small but my first was kind of wrapped around me while the others were all little basketballs....people always guessed boys for 2, 3 & 4....they were only right with 4
