    So I was just flicking through my Prima Baby magazine and it has an article on pregnancy myths.

    One I found interesting was that your bump and how you carry doesn't reflect gender, your boob changes do. Apparently if your having a girl they'll get bigger than if your having a boy, because of the extra hormones.

    I've only changed from a 36D up to a 38DD which isn't a ginormous change, so maybe I'm having a boy.

    What's everyone's opinion on this??

    I'm having a boy & I've gone from a 36DD to a 40E, so that's quite a big difference imo x

    Im the same as Sara..
    36DD before and i have 40E and 38F bras now and they are getting snug lol.
    But without bra on i cant see a huge difference, bot sure if my huge bump makes them look smaller tho lol!

    Haha, I was soooo hoping for a "actually, that's about right" response, which you NEVER get. Seems like there's a trend of disagreement so maybe boys make them big and girls don't?!

    I've read this before too! Apparently it's one of the few myths that actually has some truth in it although judging by other people's replies maybe not! For me it has been true though, my boobs didn't grow much in my pregnancy with DS until near the end but this time they grew and got really tender right at the beginning and I'm having a little girl xxx

    I was a 30G before I got pregnant and now I'm wearing a 34GG at 28 weeks so mine haven't really got much bigger, I just increased the back size to be more comfortable and I'm having a girl.

    Well I'm having a girl and haven't even expanded enough to go up a size yet. Got a lot heavier, to the point I can't wear a tie up haulter bikini top cos the knot ends up digging right in the back of my neck and def can't go without a bra at all cos it's just agony!! I'm guessi g I'll expand at some point though, at least when milk comes in!

    I've had one boy and one girl before (now pregnant with a boy) and I haven't gone up more with a particular sex. This time only half a cupsize (but I didn't gain a lot so far)
