Did you carry your boys different from your girls? or specific cravings per gender?

I carried all my girls (3) very low and right out front. This is my first boy and I'm carrying him much higher still right out front. I crave meat/protein 24/7 with my boy, and my friend did also. I was wondering if maybe it was a boy thing?

  • I have 3 boys, 1 girl and my 2nd girl is being born tomorrow (scheduled C). I didn't notice any difference between how I carried, and I had different cravings with each of them, but I never craved meat - it was usually something sweeter (or caesar salads with this one!)

  • I had three boys. I carried them the same. But my cravings were completely different for each kid.

  • I've only had one boy, but I carried him really high, and craved all salty and tart things. I hardly ever wanted sweets. That still didn't keep me from gaining 50 lbs, lol.

  • i had a boy - he was easy to find on the first time looking for the heartbeat - i just went in for the first listen of the babys heart beat and they couldn't find it for a few the child was hiding under my pubic bone... I hope for a girl... my boy was high.. idk i have the same question so i will check back on responses!
