This is probably just a bunch of myth's, but do any of you think this is true??

Headaches during pregnancy means it's a boy.

Adding the month number to you age when you concieved can tell you the gender..odd is girl, even is boy.

That you show alot faster with a boy and your belly is alot lower.

  • boy; belly i think is lower, my first was a daughter and she was high this one has felt like hes gonna pop out from hitting since i was like 26 weeks.
    the month thing worked for me too.
    dont know about the headache thing though...i know i had morning sickness all the time with my daughter and maybe twice with this one...then again all pregnancies are supposed to be diff so who knows

  • They are all just myths.

    I showed really fast, and I was huge. Everyone thought it was twins. And I carried super low...toward the end I though she was going to fall out. All the old ladies SWORE I was having a boy.

    Guess what? I have a 10 1/2 month old daughter.

  • Basically Old Wives Tales. Long time ago it was more of a coincidence so they thought it was true.

  • All myths. I had terrible headaches in all my pregnancies, carried them all the same way, and the numerology thing also doesn't add up.

  • headaches during pregnancy is a boy is not true because I got headache all the time with baby number 2 and it was a girl. The way you carry isn't true because I carried low with my first it was a girl i carried even lower the second time it was a girl. Ya same here everyone thought I was having twins with 1 baby and everyone swore I was having a boy and now I have a 4 year old DD and a 15 month old DD

  • well they are all just myths. I carried my first dd high and this one is low, The calendar/age this was right this time but i believe it was wrong the last time and I have major headaches and I am having a girl!!
