Pregnancy Week 19: Old Wives' Tales

A popular Indian Old Wives’ tale says that if a pregnant woman’s buttocks grow prominently during pregnancy, then she is carrying a baby girl and if it is her abdomen which grows more prominently, the baby is a boy.

The real reason is, buttocks surely increase in size during pregnancy irrespective of the gender of the baby. The shape and size of the abdomen depends on how the baby is lying in the womb. Myth Busted!
