How are you carrying baby?
Is your baby high or low in your abdomen?
Do you look like you swallowed a basketball or watermelon?
Are you having a boy or girl?
Have you gained weight everywhere or just in the belly?



Baby tends to do both, but mostly stays low.
I look more like a basketball shape, than a watermelon.
Baby is Definately a BOY
Most of my weight has been gained in my belly and in my boobs.

I think I'm carrying low, with baby head down. I'm going to see the midwife this week so she ll probably make it out. I think I'm more watermelon.
Having a girl (won't completely believe it until she's born)
With all my boys except Ben I just looked like I had a huge bump right out the front.
This time my hips and backside have spread too. I really think I've put weight on everywhere.

I'm carrying baby girl low. And small. My measurements at the doctor's office show that I'm right on schedule but some people still have a hard time believing that I'm six months pregnant. My belly doesn't really look round to me, so I guess it looks more like the front half of a watermelon.

This little lady either sits really high or really low. At the U/S yesterday, she was head down -- and I pretty much know the exact moment she picked that position. I could tell because my belly shifted very dramatically!

I think it looks like I swallowed several lumpy watermelons.

I haven't gained any weight yet -- in fact, I'm down about 10 lbs -- but I can tell that what I've lost everywhere else, I've gained in my abdomen, but I'm pretty sure it's all baby...

Do you look like you swallowed a basketball or watermelon? neither, I'm overweight so I just look lumpy, not round at all
Are you having a boy or girl? boy
Have you gained weight everywhere or just in the belly? just in my belly and boobs

How are you carrying baby? I think low- I've got baby A's head very low. Baby B's is a few inches higher.
Do you look like you swallowed a basketball or watermelon? Definitely watermelon.
Are you having a boy or girl? 2 girls
Have you gained weight everywhere or just in the belly? Mostly in my belly, but a teensy bit everywhere else too. I can't wear my wedding rings anymore because they don't fit but if you look at me from behind I don't look pregnant- then I turn and it's quite obvious lol.

How are you carrying baby? Usually high but occasionally he'll drop down for a few hours.

Do you look like you swallowed a basketball or watermelon? A very lumpy pillow more like.

Are you having a boy or girl? Boy.

Have you gained weight everywhere or just in the belly? Just the belly, maybe a little in the butt.

How are you carrying baby? She's usually low, she must be comfy there
Do you look like you swallowed a basketball or watermelon? Basketball! And that's what everyone else says when they see me, lol
Are you having a boy or girl? Girl
Have you gained weight everywhere or just in the belly? Pretty much just my belly, hips, and boobs. All my female relatives throw a fit and say "look at you, you can't even tell you're pregnant from the back! you have the perfect body!" I just laugh..

I'm lower, not a basketball. My weight is sadly all over lol but especially my boobs and tummy. I've had a lot of people telling me I look very good though so that's nice to hear. I'm really starting to pop out now so I think I look a good 6 months.

How are you carrying baby? Straight out front.
Is your baby high or low in your abdomen? He moves up and down. Usually he seems to be kind of low, because I feel his hiccups down in my pelvis.
Do you look like you swallowed a basketball or watermelon? Basketball I think.
Are you having a boy or girl? Boy
Have you gained weight everywhere or just in the belly? Mostly just belly. I do feel a little puffy everywhere though.

She's everywhere lol
I have a watermelon belly
It's a girl!
I've gained in my belly and boobs only, I feel pretty lucky, you can't tell from the back on me either, but it might change, I'm just hoping it doesn't

How are you carrying baby? i think right in the middle. I don't remember enough to compare to my previous pregnancies.

Do you look like you swallowed a basketball or watermelon? Neither. lol

Are you having a boy or girl? Boy for sure.

Have you gained weight everywhere or just in the belly? Haven't gained yet, but my belly is definitely the most noticeable change. And my boobs look even huge-r.

I never knew until that moment how badly it could hurt to lose something you never really had. - Missed Miscarriage at 10 weeks - 3/26
