Question: Does my pregnant belly tell me if I am carrying a girl or a boy?
Answer:

The size and shape of your pregnant belly has absolutely nothing to do with the sex of your baby. It merely represents the position your baby, placenta and uterus have decided to take and don't influence the sex of the baby at all. So while you may hear that carrying high is a girl and low is a boy, it might not be true at all for you!
