I had a flashback today of a conversation I had once with someone who used to work at my company years ago. She was pregnant at the time was telling me you "look different" when you are pregnant depending on if you are having a boy or a girl. I've heard that you can carry the baby differently based on the gender but I haven't heard that the mom looks differently.
She said if you are having a girl, you will look pretty much the same as you do now but if you are having a boy, you will look ugly. Yes, that's what she said. She said your face changes and you don't look like yourself. I wondered if you could look different - but better. Her answer was "no, you don't look better."
Whenever anyone told her they thought she was having a boy, she would take offense. She said "never tell anyone that they are having a boy!"
I've been told more often that people think I'm having a boy than a girl but don't worry, my feelings aren't hurt.
Has anyone else heard of this before?
