    so im carrying my bump high and right out to the front, and im getting conflicting stories from people.
    Some say "oh look at how youre carrying, its def a boy" and others say "Def a girl with that bump".

    what is the correct version of the old wives tale?

    i know it doesnt mean a thing but im just curious to know

    I had it as if you put on general weight and spread out its a girl, if you're out front and neat it's a boy. It's true for me. Couldnt really tell you high or low, I'm so petite he's just there! x

    Carrying a boy - have been very low the entire pregnancy and all out at the front.

    Another old wives tale that worked for me was shaving - seemingly if you rarely need to shave its a boy, shaving more regularly than pre-pregnancy a girl. LOL
