Some people say they could tell whether you're having a girl or a boy depending on how you tummy looks. Is that true? If so which is it? Low belly girl or boy? Oh and this is my first time being pregnant. Anyone?

It's an old wives tale but I always heard it as girls carry high boys carry low

Old wives tale....I carried low the entire time - everyone swore kaiden was a boy. But 9 different ultrasounds said otherwise. Sure enough - Kaiden is very much a girl....

My friend's mom thought by looking at me that I was having a boy [I was/am carrying fairly low.] but she's the only one I heard say that. My one friend had her baby girl already and I am due with one, and we both carried low, while our other friend is due with a boy and she is carrying really high.

I am pretty sure that it's just some of the old wives tales though.

I'm having a boy and carrying really low, but a good way to tell is if it's a boy, your belly is more pointy, like, and a girl, you look like you're even buldging from your sides, not JUST on your belly like a boy.

I've heard that if you carry low it's a boy, if it's high it's a girl. But I'm having a boy and have been carrying high.

My little one just dropped last week, but we're expecting a girl, and I've been carrying her way high. There's no value in this old wives' tale.

i've heard boy-low, girl-high.



i'm having a boy and i am carrying him very low, but i think it's just an old wives tale...nothing to rely on.
