According to "Origins" by Annie Paul there may be some truth to it, though. I can't seem to copy and paste from it so here's a screen shot:

that's really interesting because one of the things that came out of the whole early risk testing fiasco is that my levels of the HCG hormone were really elevated. i didnt know those also made you nauseous.
at the very least i havent really been puking. i always feel like im ABOUT TO puke but usually it doesnt happen.

i find this sort of stuff fascinating even though a lot of it is indeed just old wives' tales.

also i guess this means we can all place our bets now that Duchess/Princess/whatever her title is Kate will be having a girl.

I felt fine while I was pregnant, and I had a girl. It makes me so sad that sexism starts in the womb. I was also told that being pregnant with a girl makes you ugly (the baby "steals your beauty"). I'm sorry you're having such a crappy time, LP! I hope you feel better soon.


Ditto. I had a really easy and extremely happy pregnancy, and had a girl.

I've heard that your nose gets broader if you're having a girl, and shamefully admit that I think my nose did do that.

When I told my boss I was pregnant she said she had suspected as much because my backside was bigger! (I don't remember her exact wording but that was the idea) I did have a boy too, but doesn't everybody's butt get bigger during pregnancy?
