  • I carried my girl low and didn't crave anything, and you couldn't tell I was pg from behind. I carried my boy high and craved yogurt, and looked pg from my chin to my knees from every angle!

  • What's the necklace trick?

  • The necklace thing was wrong for me and I carried high, didn't crave much and what I did crave was sweets and I had a boy.

  • If you glow its a boy, if you get ache its a girl.. it worked for me

  • I was craving salty snacks big time! No sweets at all. My girlfriend told me I'd have a boy...which I did. Boys = Glow? I was glowing during my pregnancy. Friends said I looked better than ever! A coworker who was pregnant at the same time as me looked washed out pale and tired. She had a girl. I've heard that girls drain the mother's beauty while boys enhance the mother's beauty.
