Just wanted to see what you thought of this "old wives tale" about heart rate predicting the baby's gender.. yesterday i had a sono at 7w 3 d and the sono tech said she predicted my baby was a girl because the heartbeat was 162 bpm based on the old wives tale (anything over 140=girl, anything under 140= boy).
I think this can be an indicator but by no means is it always right or I would have been a boy and my brother would have been a girl my mom was suprised twice since back then thats all they had to indicate gender! but with my children it has proven true but only in later pregnancy past 12-13ish weeks both my boys hr stayed mostly near 140-145 and my baby girl stayed a bit higher around the 160 range but this baby is staying around 160-170 but it has gone down a bit at 158 today so guess we will see in the next few weeks if it goes on down because Im sure its a boy!
