I think we are all getting to the point where we can tell how we carry or are going to carry.

I feel like I carry my babies in my throat! Okay, that is an exaggeration, but I carry high. There is hardy any room between my belly and boobs it seems like! I tried to put on a cute stretchy belt today with my dress and it was just not working! If I carry like I did last pregnancy, I will just get more and more uncomfortable as baby gets bigger and bigger and pushes my lungs and stomach up into my chest!

How do you carry? Or how do you think you are going to carry if you can't tell yet?

In the past I was high, but this time baby is very, very low. When I'm sitting I feel like belly is resting on my lap!

I can't tell yet, but I probably won't look pregnant until 35 weeks or so...

the boys were pretty high.

I was very low with all my boys. This one it's really too early for me to tell just yet.

With my boys I was just all belly. Not low or high just front. With my daughter my arse was pregnant!

With this little boy I'm not showing yet but he is pushing everything UP and hb is already a problem!

I carry in the middle, if that makes any sense. Not high or low. My last pregnancy with DD was like this too.

I usually carry right in the middle. I usually look like I have stuck a beach ball up my shirt. LOL I can't tell yet with this one. I am not really showing yet.

This is only my second pregnancy (not counting my m/c). With my son i feel like i carried pretty low, especially at this point (I wasn't even showing yet). This time i'm carrying high already but am not sure if its because i'm showing so much earlier. I'm also gaining weight everywhere not just in the front. Does anyone know if the wives tale is true about carrying high means girl and low means boy??

I'm still not really showing yet, but I "feel" like I'm carrying a bit higher, but all in the front just like the boys. I'm not growing anywhere else thankfully (outside of my boobs, of course). I hope that I keep this one all belly like my last three have been!!!

I carried high with my son. The farther into the pregnancy I got the higher he got. By the time I delivered there was no space between my boobs and belly. I never dropped before labor either. This time I'm carrying higher a lot quicker. It's already hard to breath sometimes, but I don't look that big yet.

I am carrying the same as I did with my son, all around the middle. I am afraid my belly button will pop and that sucker is deep. lol maybe it is an indication that it is another boy...

My uterus hasn't even reached my belly button yet, so I feel like it's too early to call. But last time I carried pretty low. This time, I know from my early ultrasounds that the baby is attached high in the upper part of my uterus. I don't know if that means I'll be carrying high this time?

It is true for me. My DD was high. Always had to push her down out from under my ribs. My DS, I carried low, and this little boy I'm carrying low as well. SO for me, It is true.

I carried kind of low with my girls. But it was all front and center, you couldn't tell at all from behind that I was pg. With this one (boy) I'm carrying across and low. I have pregnancy in my love handles lol.

With DS he was SO LOW! I felt like he would drop out of me at any second for most of my pregnancy!

With DD she was SO HIGH! She would dig up under my ribs...it hurt. Towards the end of my pregnancy she was getting big enough that she would get hung up on my right side of my pelvis bone...now that HURT!!!

So far this time I see it more up high, but kinda in the middle. I definately don't feel it low like I did with DS. Just another reason I'm getting the feeling this one is another girl!
