What causes you to carry a baby low or high?

With my daughter I carried her high, and with this one it's REALLY low. I've always heard that high means one sex and low means another, but I know that's not true but it still got me wondering what makes you carry one high and then one low?

  • Position of the placenta. Shape of your torso and uterus. And the baby's personal preference.

  • I carry lower each time, which my provider says is often the case.
