    i know alot of you know what flavor baby your having.

    a friend of ours has a theory that you can tell the sex of your baby by how you 'carry' your bump.

    the theory goes that if you are having a girl, you carry at the front and have a 'hollow back' - meaning your back curves with your bump and you havent put on any extra weight around that area.

    if your having a boy, you carry all the way around - meaning you put weight on all over including your back.

    how many of you know what your having and are carrying either ar the front or all the way around?

    I thought it was the other way round? If your all front its a boy and if you put weight on most other places its a girl?
    Guess they are just old wives tales tho...but all fun. :lol:

    if it is true and the other way around we had better come up with a plan b ..lol...

    i'm carrying at the front and at my 23 week scan they said it was a girl....

    although we have bought neutral, we couldnt decide on a boys name, it took us long enough to agree on a girls name..... :rotfl:

    both my pregnancies have been all over, obviously got another girl on the way.

    I'm expecting a boy and I seem to be all bump at the front too, I have put a bit of weight on my back but i'm mostly all front. Old wives tale I think :wink:

    Apparently boys are all up front and girls are all around... I carried all around with Tia but this time, I am definitely all up front :think: Which is why i thought I was carrying a boy... There was also this girl I knew, and it looked like she was carrying two extra babies in her bum it was that big... and it turned out to be a boy... so I don't think its true tbh.. :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: Its a bit like that fundal measurement stuff.

    I dont know what I am having but people love guessing :roll: my favourite - is when people say you'd never know you were pregnant from the back - now I think even if you do put on some weight all round - babies dont grow in your back so this is a totally stupid comment :wall: :wall: :wall:

    I'm all out front, nowt anywhere else and I'm having a girl. Don't think it has anything to do with gender though. More likely to do with your body shape to begin with and maybe genetics??
