Oh, You're Going to Have a Girl!

Where baby is carried doesn't indicate sex

You're pregnant and everyone has a way to help you determine if it's a boy or girl.

One time-honored method is whether the baby is carried high (girl) or low (boy). Unfortunately, according to the Health and Nutrition Center in Surry County, N.C., it's a myth. Carrying high means it's either your first pregnancy or you're incredibly fit. With each pregnancy, certain muscles become more elastic. Exercises after pregnancy can bring them back to form.

So, if you really want to know if it's a boy or girl, see your doctor.
