I would just add to be cautious about trusting the whole "heartrate as gender predictor" theory; my DH's parents were told throughout the entire pregnancy that he was a girl (apparently the OB had a very high success rate at predicting based on heartrate). Right up until the moment of birth, that is, when he realized his mistake!
As a result, there are no pictures of DH at birth, because FIL (who was holding the camera) was standing in the delivery room bawling like a baby at having the long-hoped-for BOY.
P.S. So, your midwife thought girl because the heartrate had slowed down? Funny; I had always heard that the heartrate predictor was based on girls having higher heartrates than boys . . . (*shrug*)

Hell, I had an u/s, and I STILL don't trust it completely!
