having a boy but carrying like its a girl?

I think that maybe I got suckered into the old wivs tales (which I didn't think I did) or I am just comparing this pregnancy with my last two, but I'm carrying this one sooo much differently. I have gained EVERYWHERE, especially my butt and my belly is like a watermelon rather than a basketball like my other two pregnancies. The dr. confirmed we're having a boy through the ultrasound and this is my third boy! Has anyone carried like they were having a girl, but it turned out to be a boy?

  • You did get suckered. That is no indication of what you're having. The mans sperm does :-)

  • Im carring my girl the same way I carried my boy. So I really dont believe in the old wives tales. Im sure the way you carry depends on your body, not the sex.
