My mom has always been very good at calling what a mother is carrying... she said fluid retention, swelling, plumpening says girl and all belly says boy. What about you? How did you hold your weight and what did you end up with? I'm curious to see the accuracy. :)

I was skinny with a baskbetball in my shirt appearance all belly for SON

I was the same way with second pregnancy which was a girl

Third pregnancy I gained all over and belly was so big it wrapped around my sides and looked like I was having twins. (she was almost 10 lbs so no wonder) she was a girl

Carried in belly but gained all over last one was a boy

With my first I had a lot of swelling and was all belly, and she was a girl.  My second was all belly and no swelling what-so-ever and she was a girl also.

That theory was accurate with both of my pregnancies. I was fat everywhere with my dd and all belly with my ds.

I was a balloon for all of mine...lol.   My one friend swore I was carrying a girl when I was pregnant with my son....I knew he was a boy....but the rule of thumb was wrong with me....LOL
