    Actually this is the folk wisdom in the US too, and it turned out to be accurate for me and for most of the ladies in my pregnancy classes. I looked like I was carrying a basketball under my shirt, but you couldn't tell I was pregnant from behind! ANd yes, it was a boy ...

    For my last pregnancy my belly was really pointed and nobody could tell I was pregnant from behind, and I was carrying a boy. I'm pregnant with 2nd one and am in week 27. People still can't tell I'm pregnant from behind, but my belly is obviously rounder. And I'm carrying a girl.
    My skin and body shape is definitely better with this pregnancy, so I think I'm lucky the jealousy between mothers and daughters doesn't seem to apply to me ;)

    I had a boy first time around and now pregnant with a girl. I have definitely put on more weight across my bum this time. Feeling enormous!!

    with me everyone said I was carrying a boy the first time because you couldn't tell from the back side and it didn't look like a "watermelon" as they say...but it was a girl...so it's hard to say! :)

    The first time I was carrying a girl my belly was more round and weight was distributed all across. With a boy now my belly is pointed.

    WELL. EVERYONE said I was carrying a girl because of the shape of my belly. My HK doctor told me 4 times through the ultrasounds that I was carrying a girl. Then I went to Aus (to have the baby) and the doctor there told me I was carrying a girl too. The whole time I was convinced I was having a boy. I just had this feeling. Then I had the 3D ultrasound and she said I was definitely having a boy! Gave me picture proof! I was soooo not surprised because I really had known all along! The day before my 3D ultrasound my mum had said 'come on Lisa, it's a girl. Let's go buy pink stuff'. And I gave in because so many ultrasounds had said girl. Luckily we kept the receipts so I could get blue stuff instead hehe.
    ANYWAY to answer the question, they were ALL wrong and I was RIGHT. :)
