  • trust the ultrasounds, not the shape of your belly. carrying high or low is an old wive's tale.

  • I got the opposite. Yeah, people told me I looked like I was carrying a boy with my DD for I carried HIGH. A NURSE even told me that. Well they were wrong, I had a GIRL. When I had my son, I carried lower, and some said I looked like I was carrying a girl. lol

  • Thats why we always wait til birth to find out the gender. you never REALLY know until you see in the flesh. buying stuff shouldn't deter you, baby doesn't care what color clothes they are wearing and you can always shop for baby after it's born too.

    The whole carrying low sayings are old wives tales, you know better than to truly believe them.

  • I would trust a sonogram and a 3D ultrasound more then I would old wives tales.

  • Usually if the sonogram is showing a girl....I would not worry to much.
    Just because you are carrying low does not mean you are having a boy.

    With my first one I carried low. This time I am carrying high........I have a ultrasound showing that it is a BOY! It is pretty obvious too!

  • Did the sonogram show the parts that said you were having a girl? It's very obvious on a 3D ultrasound what you are carrying. It's an old wives' tale about how you are carrying. I had a 3D one done on my youngest and his parts were very visible.

  • Everyone said the same thing to me. I still had a girl. It is an old wives' tale about how you carry and all that. I think it's just fun for them to make you crazy.

  • I carried my son high the whole 38 weeks. How you carry means nothing,.

  • trust the US its just an old wives tale...
    I know how you feel though... I had a dream the other night that my baby was handed to me in the hospital and I looked down and it was a boy and I said "oh no!!!! what are we going to do with all that girl stuff?" haha
