Increased hair on stomach and acne....is it a boy??

I had a follow up with my OB today, and she couldn't check between the legs for gender 1) because it's really early and 2) because when she did look all she saw was the umbilical cord. But, I did ask her about the hair that's grown on my belly and increased acne which I haven't had since high school...she said that could mean there is increased testosterone in me because the baby is a BOY! Anyone have this experience?? We find out the gender for sure on June 17th, but I'm just curious!!

To me... Everything is genetics. With my boy, you would of thought i was having a girl and with my daughter you would of thought was a boy if you leaned on wives tales.

I am pregnant with my 3rd boy and haven't experienced that with either. I don't know anyone who has had issues with the hair but for the acne everyone I know that had acne flare ups had a girl.

That's actually good to hear, because I would like a girl and was a little disappointed when she made that prediction! Everyone is different, so as much as I'd like answers now, I suppose we'll just have to wait and see! Thanks for the input :)

I can't say one way or the other because I have twin boys and I broke out when I was pregnant with them and I'm pregnant with another boy and again, breaking out on my arms and back but I've known people who've had girls and had the same thing happen to them.

Don't buy into any of that. It doesn't actually mean anything. With this one, I've had every symptom of a girl, and it's another boy. Lol

I was actually the opposite. I am having a girl, and have excess hair on my belly and terrible acne for the first time in my life. I thought the old wives tales was "girls steal their mothers beauty"...thus the pimples and what not lol Idk.
