A poll to satisfy curiousity!

After reading some of the replies to ladykutenay's recent post with the anatomy drawing, I'm curious as to how much truth there might be in the old wives' tale that girls are carried high and boys are low. So lets all answer a couple questions and see if there's any correlations!

1. What gender is your child? (options: Boy, Girl, Unknown)
2. Where are you "carrying" aka where does it feel like the baby is spending his/her/its time? (options: high, low, in the middle)
3. What shape is your stomach in profile right now? (options; B for baby & uterus are evenly distributed, D for baby & uterus are low, P for baby & uterus are high)

I can't seem to get the poll to come out right so I've edited this to be a poor ljers poll where I provide questions and the list of answer options for you to pick from. Try it again!

1. Boy
2. High
3. P shape

i'm living proof that boys are not always carried low. ultrasound techs and doctors are always astonished at how high i've carried my boys! and my ribs just ADORE it let me tell you.

Okay that's one proof against the old wives! Lets see if there are any more out there.

I'm particularly curious since I don't know the gender of our kid yet!

1. Boy
2. Mostly low, I haven't had a single kick to the ribs yet.
3. B/D ish. I think mostly because the fattest looking part of my stomach is where all my other organs are squished. My uterus is smaller, but catching up fast, and squishing everything else all the worse.

Funny-I made this post a few days ago about the same thing.

I don't know what I'm having, my mother says "girl" my mother in law says "boy".

I carried my daughter REALLY high, up in my ribs. This time I have twins and my boy is crammed down into my cervix and the girl is, once again, jammed into my ribs. My belly is just huge, its a lot wider this time around.

1. Girl
2. Very high! My ribs hurt quite often but back rarely hurts though I have an anterior placenta. Kicks are usually toward ribs or middle. I can still wear all my old panties which I like ;)
3. P - from front its very ovalish -- not really round as much

1. Girl
2. To the right, mostly even top and bottom, but I feel her in my ribs a lot
3. oval, but by comparison with my son, I'm less rounded near the pubic area, and more up in the stomach area

and for reference, first baby..

1. Boy
2. LOW, he was ALWAYS on my bladder, he never once touched my ribs
3. oval

1. I'm having a BOY

2. I'm carrying in the middle I guess. I feel him mostly between my ribs and close to my belly button. I RARELY feel him any lower than that.

3. Uh....I don't really know how to answer this. I look like a normal pregnant lady.

1. What gender is your child? This is my second boy.
2. Where are you "carrying" aka where does it feel like the baby is spending his/her/its time? This time it's high, last time it was low.
