As soon as the second line materializes on a home pregnancy test, parents start wondering one thing: Am I having a boy or a girl? Unfortunately, the wait from a positive pregnancy test until a baby has developed enough for an ultrasound to reveal the gender can be a very long one. In the mean time, many old wives' tales claim that curious parents can guess their baby's gender by paying attention to food cravings, the baby's heart rate -- or even the shape of Mom's belly.
Look at how high a woman carries her baby. If she is carrying high, it indicates a girl, but if she is carrying low, that suggests a boy.
Check out the size of a pregnant woman's belly. A larger belly means she's having a girl. A smaller, less noticeable belly indicates a boy.
Examine the shape of a pregnant woman's bump. A round, basketball-shaped bump with extra weight around a woman's hips and bottoms suggests she's carrying a girl. A narrow bump that sticks straight out means she's having a boy.
