carrying baby

So I was wondering if the wives tales are true, do u really carry a boy more round like a basketball and down lower and and girl higher and more like a watermelon. I have had 2 boys so far and am closet to 27 weeks and expecting a girl and to me my belly looks the same maybe a tad bit different but even my pregnancy has been kinda the same, I'm a little more moodier and a lot more tired feeling but I also have 2 kiddos this time haven't really been sick or vomited but dry heaved a lot other during the beggining. Anyways idk my mind is playing major tricks on me bc I seriously think i was told wrong and I'm really going to have a boy lol. I had a 3d scan and they say she's really good and I also had my own doctors office confirm it was and girl as well pretty much at 19  weeks but I keep hearing stories of delivery room suprised or the very last sonogram and they find boy parts so now my mind is playing games 1 day it's a girl in my mind the other it but what if it's a boy lol I know my hormones arnt helping my case arnt all and I'm always sounding like a crazy woman

My first girl I carried her all around and high..this child is another girl and I'm carrying her straight out like a basketball and low so I don't believe it's always true.

Everyone keeps telling me I am carrying like a boy but I did see the ultrasound and it looked just like my daughter and the heart rates were exactly the same so I'll be super suprised of its not a girl lol. I think all pregnancies can be very different or similar so.

I don't know what I'm having but I'm carrying low...unfortunately, this is common with the more pregnancies you have because your muscles and ligaments will just relax and stretch faster. My doc said it could get worst and that I should start wearing a belly band to help support my belly.

I haven't really every considered the wives tale because I'm having twins, but I've had lots of older women ask right off the bat if I'm having a boy or make comments about my "baby boy". I must have looked like I had a basketball tummy,but it's because there are two girls in there.

I had a girl the first time and I carried her high and now that I'm having a boy,he is very low so I mean it could be true but everyone is different

How you carry has nothing to do with gender. It's a myth. I carried high with both girls and my mom carried low with us girls and high with my brother.
