I found this site on SoCaliMommy's blog (thanks!).  I thought it was fun and I'd post my results.  What are you having according to this old wive's tale?

Looks like boy #4! Or at least a 50/50 chance anyway. ;)

Hmm.. does it look kinda random? talktomenow and willsmomm both put in 170bpm with different results! I've always heard that higher=girl and lower=boy, but can't remember the cut off. First time I heard ds's heartbeat it was in the 130s I think and my mw said "that sounds like a little boy!" :) I already "knew" I was having a boy at that point. Dd's was always in the 160s. This little one was in the 150s.. so..kinda in the middle :/ haha

It appears that the have a database of heart rates at different gestational ages and are taking averages for the genders.  So the average for boys at 9 weeks is higher than it was at 8 weeks...  And you'll notice mine at 9 weeks was 175 (they told me 174.42 was the average for girls at that age).  So 5 bpm different changed the result.  LOL!

i agree with willsmom that there's a 50/50 chance this is right.

Mine was wrong, but hey, 50/50... 

 

Funny: I know it's a boy and when my midwife was listening to the heartbeat last week, she said it sounded like a boy. Thought that was cool.

First Ultrasound Said Boy

Second one said Girl

post #16 of 23

I put in the rates for last weeks ultrasound and for the ultrasound with my last pregnancy.
My last pregnancy was a girl and the heart rate was 154 at 17 weeks,

this pregnancy is a boy and the heart rate was 164 at 16 weeks.

 

The website said the last pregnancy was a boy and this one was a girl. :p So it said the opposite of what is true. :)

Both times I've heard baby's u/s it's said boy, and the intelligender did as well.

post #18 of 23

I've done this three different times and all of them said BOY, and my U/S confirmed!  orngbiggrin.gif  It's still an old wives' tale, but I think it's pretty neat that it was accurate in this case, especially since I was kind of hoping for a boy...

I also did this 3 different times and it said that I was having a boy.  We found out 2 days ago that it's a GIRL!  So much for that.  ;)
