Is it by looking the shape of the belly do we know if it is a boy or girl?

  • One board wasn't enough? Wait for your doctor to do an ultrasound. There IS no other way to tell.

  • No, you can't tell a baby's sex by the shape of the mother's belly. That's a myth.

  • An ANNOYING myth! People all throughout my pregnancy said I was having a boy because it was all out front. Though I DID end up having a boy, it made me really mad when people couldn't just let it go and let the surprise come, since I didn't want to find out. I actually started hoping for a girl, just because I wanted to prove everyone wrong! Who are they to say they know what MY body is doing? I hope when I DO have a daughter I carry the EXACT SAME WAY!

    Sorry, this opened a can for me! :)

  • Yes YOU CAN, but you have to hold a glass of water upside down in front of you. If the water spills then it is a girl. If it doesn't it's a miracle.

  • When I was pregger's w/ my daughter, my belly was spead from hip to hip, but when I had my son, I was sticking outward.  I don't know if it's true or not, I can't even depend on the ultrasounds becasue with my second pregnancy I was told, twice that I was carrying another girl.
