First pregnancy, didn't ask at the 20 week scan for the sex of the baby and now everybody's been making comments about it by looking at the bump so I wish I had found out for sure. I think I am carrying low? what does that mean, some say it's a girl, some say it's a boy. The internet says it's a boy if you carry low?
I think I was just peeved off with the certainty with which some people declare the sex of my baby. it kind of spoils the effect of deciding not to know because then I take their word for the closest medical assesment. my PIL are visiting and my MIL said that she carried both her sons high... so from what you are all writing high or low does not indicate anything.
so does it mean that my muscles are weak then? do I need to do any exercises to tone them up?
Everyone except one person said they were convinced I was having a boy - so was I. Didn't find out from the scan. I looked like I had a basketball up my top, carried relatively high and had quite a narrow sticky out the front bump rather than all round extra weight.
DS was (rather obviously!) a boy! This time, I seem to have spread all over the place already (am 12 weeks today ) and have been far more sick. Will be interesting to see if this is a girl or just a different boy - but won't find out till he or she is born! Other people can guess till their chins drop off, but the only conclusive way to know (without a test of some sort) is to actually give birth, so let them guess!
My experience is - all pregnancies are different and if you carry differently it dosn't mean a different outcome.
Think the only way to be sure is to ask at your scan (if you can) or keep an open mind.
I don't know why some people like to try to tell a pregnant women what they think she's having! I had two close freinds almost arguing over the sex of my baby recently - funny as I know what it is and I'm keeping stum! He he Helenxx
