Why do boys carry lower and girls higher?

Im having a baby boy and I am carrying really low and I was wondering why boys carry lower and girls higher? I am so aggrivated because now when I drive I have to spread my legs so my bump isnt resting on them! lol its kinda funny! Did you have the same problem with your buys? (Im not complaining because I would rather pee alot more than not be able to breathe, thats scary to me!!)

  • I'm 29 weeks pregnant with a girl and i'm carrying very low and have been the entire pregnancy. My cousin had a boy and carried high the whole time. the high and low thing is a just an old wives tale.

  • Actually its not always true. More of an old wives tale than anything. I am pregnant with a boy and he was pretty high my whole pregnancy until these last few weeks but that is because I'm 3 weeks away from my due date so he's dropped a lot. I never had a problem with not being able to breathe though.

  • Yep, old wives tale. In fact people were telling me they could tell I'm having a boy because I'm carrying high! Haha.

  • Old wives tale... just like that if you have heartburn real bad that means your baby has a lot of hair. I had terrible heartburn and 5 very bald daughters LOL
