  • Definitely an old wive's tale. Positioning of the baby and growth of the belly has to do with where the embryo implants in the uterus. If it implants up top, you are likely to carry higher or even into the ribcage to where your belly hardly shows (that's what mine did). If it implants lower, you are likely to carry lower. As the baby grows larger your belly shape will change with their movements.

  • now how in the world would a baby know she's a girl and be higher than a boy or a boy and be lower than a girl? Maybe his peni* weighs him down so he's lower? Don't listen to crap like that. It's just someone pulling your leg.

  • Not necessarily. I have 2 boys, the first I carried low, the second I carried high.
