  • If you're carrying high, all of the baby belly is up by your rib cage. If you're carrying low, it's more in front of your abdomen, just at/above the pant-line. If you are 22 weeks and have to buy a ton of new clothes cause all your pants are outgrown, chances are you're carrying low.

  • I carried low with my daughter. If you are 22 weeks you should have (if you haven't already) an ultrasound to determine gender.

    To anon: you don't have to answer every question you read. Stop being a jerk.

  • Does it feel like your stomach is up into your boobs, or does your belly point down to the ground? I can tell by how far my belly button sticks out. I'm carrying alot lower with this one and it is a boy. My first was a girl.

  • I carried low with my daughter, my son on the other had always had one or both of his feet in my ribs.
