I am more than 4 months pregnant and all the people would encountered would said that your baby is a boy for your nose got bloated. I was really angry though it was truth that my nose got bigger but whats the connection of it. Then the most worst someone said that my baby was a boy because i got ugly . Huhuhuhu. Though i am happy that my baby is a boy but they should be considerate with my feelings....

I am 3 months pregnant too and I encountered that too many times. First someone told me my baby is a boy because of my aura. But today someone whom I don't know told me im ugly so my baby is a boy. I didn't get hurt though I know I am not ugly. I am sure when they said "panget" in tagalog words they are not really referring that we are ugly but we are not blooming. just my opinion. Relax Magz!

I really hope i can relax, i always encountered them everyday and they say it in front of me directly. Honestly, i am really hurt but maybe i must put in mind that i am beautifully created by God and my baby is a blessing from him.

I really hope I'm misunderstanding this post. They tell you everyday you have a big nose thus are having a boy? I could understand putting your foot in your mouth once but not all the time. I think she's right try to relax but if they keep saying it and it bothers you I'd very kindly ask them to lay off on the nose comments. I'm not pregnant but I sure wouldn't want to hear that either.

Yeah, I am a Filipino and as culturally oriented by them they we really good on connecting everything to the baby's gender. But hope they should be considerate in my feeling because it really hurt me.

Hello again! No one can really say that there is a scientific explanation on to what our babies' gender would be just by looking at how we look, or to what body part got bloated. Though its just here says, most of the time its true. Though I'm one with you there that they should be somehow be a little more considerate on how to tell you things. But don't worry, your being a little sensitive is part of the hormonal changes. Pregnant women tend to have mood swings. Just don't stress yourself too much ok? :)

Okay, i won't stress myself no more... all the things and changes in my body are normal and brought by the hormonal changes. I should be a happy mommy to have a happy baby. thanks

Lol, to be honest I've never heard this. I've heard all kinds of crazy ideas on how to tell a babies gender. I heard one about the belly, one about tying a penny to a string, and stories about what kinds of foods you desire. While you very well might be having a boy I would not go by the way your nose looks. There is no connection between the nose and a babies gender. Also they probably could of put it a different way. I'd maybe tell someone you know I heard if your nose gets bloated you're having a boy....instead of Hey, you're nose is big and bloated you're having a boy congratulations. I'm sure they didn't mean to hurt your feelings but I totally see where you're coming from. I wouldn't like to hear that either. I'm sure you look lovely.

When ons is pregnant all system then changes , physically , emotionally and physiologically. Don't worry for that , it is just temporary after nine month you'll be back in your blooming face. Changing in physical look has nothing to do with gender of the baby , it is all myth. Meanwhile , enjoy being pregnant , eat lots of fruits , do exercise and keep on smiling.

Hi magz! I also experience the same thing when I was pregnant with my children but I don't know the scientific explanation for that. When I was pregnant with my son, I really noticed a great change in my physical appearance like the nose, my neck became darker, etc. So most of the people would tell me I might have a baby boy. Also with my second baby, they say I am a very pretty mom. But I think it is just a part of being pregnant. Don't pay much attention to what others are telling. That is just normal to have some changes on our physical aspect during that time. It will return to normal when you give birth. Stay happy always because what is important now is the health of your baby. Congratulations for that one. I already miss having a baby because my children are already teenagers. Have a nice day!

Yeah, i know it is quite normal but I really don't why but i am becoming more sensitive these days. Okay, i must have a positive outlook about it and think that these will be gone after giving birth. Thank you

Pregnant women really experienced changes not only on their body but with over-all appearance. Some turns much prettier and blooming while others become "not to lovely". Don't feel bad, people are telling their opinion and they never mean any harm or to offend your feeling- it just happened that, pregnant women also become more sensitive in many things.

I never heard those kind of connection. But I really think it is necessary for your friends to considerate ur feeling about that. Being a mommy might make u not so beautiful than before, but that is exactly what the mother's unconditional love lies in. If u r ready to be a mom, u have to put up with it.

A pleasant day Magz1989, With regard to your concern, perhaps, it is better to rephrase the word first before saying and delivering it out to others. in this way, saying harmful words will be avoided. after all, rephrasing words are not too difficult to do.
