On a related note, some legends even predict that women who have pregnancy acne carry girls, because apparently the girl does not want her mother to be prettier than her! Those women who have a bump that sticks straight out, "like a football" are carrying boys, the old wives' tales will tell you. If you did not grow in places other than your uterus, and you carry "high", you will be the future mother of a son. Have people been telling you this, and are you asking yourself whether there is any chance they could be right? Allow me the pleasure of disproving these myths.
The shape of your pregnant belly has nothing to do with the gender of your baby. The way in which you carry does have something to do with your body shape, your size, and the shape of your uterus. Busy bodies spent nine months telling me I was pregnant with a boy because I had a "football-shaped bump". When I told them I had had ultrasounds, and they confirmed that I was in fact having a girl, they told me the ultrasounds must have been wrong. My daughter is four years old now, and has not grown any boy parts so far.
