They say if the babies heart beat is over 140 beats/minute it is a girl....anything under is a boy.
It was correct with my DS who's heart rate was 120 beats/minute....just went to the doctor and this one is 155 beats/minute.....so am I having a girl then????
Just curious if the heart rate was correct in predicting your baby's gender!!
but i am still in the early part of my pregnancy (17 weeks) and from what they said it isnt really an indicator until later in pregnancy, as all babies are fast beaters in the early stages.
my girl was 160. this time I was 160 at one visit, and 150 the last visit.....so who knows! its still high but it may be going down, lol
I posted this question awhile back, and almost everyone who responded told me it was just an old wives' tale. A friend of mine, and a midwife on another messageboard both told me it was accurate, so if it is, i guess we're having a girl (always 160 bpm). Our ultrasound didn't tell us anything, because that stubborn little baby wouldn't move its feet from the area of interest, haha!

Babies heartrates don't stay at a particular speed, they vary greatly from minute to minute and hour to hour. How on earth then does that predict the gender? at your appointment the midwife listens for less than a minute - this is a snapshot of the heartrate at that time, a minute later it could be above or below that line.
This one is at exactly 140 the 2 times we checked. Baby is going to keep us guessing until his or her arrival.

Both my girls hovered right at 140, usually. Of course as MightyMoo said, I found out through occasional monitoring of an hour or two at a time that my babies' heartrates would vary quite a bit.
