If you've ever been pregnant, someone has pointed at your belly and exclaimed, 'Ahhh, it's a boy!' or 'Ooohh, it's a girl!' But the idea that you can determine sex from how a mom-to-be is carrying, is just a fictitious piece of Olde English Folklore. It was once believed that a woman was carrying a girl if she was carrying the baby up high, and a boy if she was carrying the baby down low, stemming from the belief that girls needed more protection, so they carried higher than boys. Except there’s NO scientific basis to back this up. The shape and height of your belly is determined by your muscle and uterine tone, and the position the baby’s in. So, what's the most accurate way to determine your baby's sex? Talk to your doctor about getting an ultrasound. And if someone thinks you're having a boy because you're carrying low, tell them that there’s a 50% chance they’re right.
