How you're carrying (just for fun)

Baby is taking up all available space in your belly. Baby showers and buying things for the nursery are on your mind. Childbirth classes, baby will be here before you know it!

Is the Baby Position myth true?

My friend told me about the Wive's Tale that you can tell the baby's sex by the position your carrying it. My hubby and I have opted to not know the baby's sex yet, so this was funny to us.

For a girl: If you are carrying high and forward.
For a boy: If you are carrying wide and low.

I'm having a boy and am carrying low but not wide at all. I'm all belly. From behind I don't look pregnant but from the side I'm huge! I don't think i fit any of the poll options!! Random strangers though look at me ans say "it's a boy right?"

hehe I couldn't do the poll because Both the first and the last one apply to me. My first was wide and low and this girl is up and out.
