I'm planning a homebirth and seeing a midwife in conjunction with my back-up OB. I'm 34 weeks pregnant, and last night my midwife asked me if I was sure I was having a girl (I had an ultra sound at 30 weeks). She said that if she didn't know any better, she'd think we were having a boy because every visit the baby's heart rate has been in the 120s or 130s consistently. I showed her the ultra sound photo and she said it did look like a girl, but she was definitely going to check the gender right away when the baby comes out because she's so curious.
What do you think? Do you think you can really predict gender based on heart rate? (Consistently above 140 a girl, consistently below 140 a boy)
I'd be happy either way, boy or girl, just curious.
