Can Shape Of Belly Determine Sex Of Baby

At my 20 wk ultrasound, I was told I am having a girl. My doc said she was 90% sure. Being my first baby, I was happy with anything so long as she's healthy. However, recently the size of my pouch has grown into to a round and pointy shape. (I am 28 wks). My relatives says if it's round and pointy then it's more likely to be a boy and if it's broad and wide it's more likely to be a girl. Just wondering if there is any validity to that? We am preparing for our nursery and wondering if we should go neutral on the safe side.

yup, go neutral anyways, better safe than sorry. Yellow is a pretty color for boys and girls. My relatives had told me that if you carry your baby high (just under your b___sts), that it'll be a boy, and if you carry the baby low (more so in your abdomen), that it'll be a girl. Also heard that if you gain the weight all over, it'll be a girl, and if you just look like you've swallowed a beach ball, it'll be a boy. I'm having a boy, and I carry a beachball just under my throat. So for me it holds true, but every pregnancy is different. Cant rely on those old wives tales too much! Good luck!

I wouldn't rely on the old wives tales too much. But someone tolled me that it's in the last month that these 'belly theories' hold true. I think depending onn where your from these tales have some variation to them. Go neutral and later you can add boy/girl accessories and finishing touches to the nursery.

i carried all my pregnancies very high, and have had a girl and boy so far, this ones a boy aswell, infact going off all the old wives tales my first 2 children should have been the opposite s_x to what they are

I would go by what my doctor said. I have people all the time tell me that I am having a boy because I am carring low and all out front. Well sorry everyone, it's a girl. And I'm sure it's a girl. How you carry depends on your body. How tall you are or how heavyyou are. It doesn't mean that you are having a boy or a girl.

This is such an old wives tale. I hae 4 girls. 1st 3 I gained all over & got huge. With my 4th I gained very little & am carrying all in the belly. Unlike the others. And guess what, they are ALL girls. So don't believe that old wives tale.
