  • Boys are suppose to be low and girls are suppose to be high but I think thats a myth for the most part. I've had a boy and 2 girls and I carried the same with all of them. They are all high up at some point. When they flip head down you start carrying lower.

  • I carried my son high pretty much the entire pregnancy. It started being really noticeable around 20 weeks.

  • Carrying low supposedly means a boy. You can generally tell after you start showing, depending on where your stomach increases in size. Basically, if you can still button up your pants a good bit after you start showing, you're probably carrying high; and if not being able to buttong your pants is the first way you know your showing, it's probably low. But how you carry has more to do with genetics and muscles tone than sex of the baby; I carried both of mine low and had a boy and a girl.
