    Man some of you are really uptight. We know your bump doesn’t define the sex of your baby. Some people just like to make guesses for fun! 

    Dont be such party poopers just ignore the thread then.

     

    op, my first I carried low except for a few weeks I was pretty round. This time I’m already really round and high I’ll find out a week from Tuesday.

    High, had a boy. BUT, he was 21 1/2 inches and 9 lbs 2 oz, so… My stomach did not get low until he was out… Also, my belly button never popped out.

    We’re having a boy, and I think I’m carrying low.  Not crazy low, but not the high “(” shaped bump some girls have.  I also had pathetic ab muscles (despite working out!), so that might contribute too 😉  So far, though, the old superstition’s true!

    Women tend to carry higher if they are in better shape and have strong ab muscles and/or if it’s their first pregnancy. Both of those are true for me and I’m definitely carrying high. Still waiting for baby to arrive though so I don’t know what we’re having!
