I heard if you are having a girl you definitely get a big b___t! But my b___ts always been big so I don't think it really matters! And I thought you carried boys low...

my friend had 4 boys and she didn't get that big. I had a boy and I was fat everywhere. I think it depends on your pregnancy and how much you give into the cravings. We still gain wait the same way even if we weren't pregnant. So if you think by eating more becuase there are two well, the excess will get turned into fat in the most obvious places. :O)

We go by this standard. If you carry high and your stomach is a watermelon shape (up and down or side to side), it's a girl. Low and basketbal shaped, it's a boy. It's worked with every preggie I've known. And that's a high number.

Old wives tales originate for a purpose. I believe that they are right a lot of the time (concerning pregnancy).... but they are not fool proof. I am pregnant with my 3rd boy. The first two pregnancies were very similar, but this one has been different in every way, including the way I'm carrying. That's why I was convinced it was a girl. But the sono shows very vividly it is a boy. That being said, those tales are tales for a reason!! Good luck!!
