Fetal Heart Rate & Gender


So, let's see if the fetal heart rate old wives tale works shall we!?

I've just heard my baby's heart rate and it varied from 149 to 160 and I'm on team yellow so I love to keep guessing what we're having!!

Apparently babies with a FHR of over 140 are more likely to be girls and a FHR of less than 140 are more likely to be boys.

I thought it was more like over 155 for girl and under 155 for a boy?

Anyway, ours was always 160+ and its a girl

I am sure its an old wives tale and only applicable when u r in labour...or something? at my 8 week private scan my baby's was 176bpm, at my 13 week scan it was 159 bpm but since having my doppler and using that it has varied anything from 138bpm to 150bpm. My midwife told me it depends on the mother's heart rate, if that is faster the baby's will beat faster. Who knows what to believe eh! I am not finding out the sex of my baby so it's really interesting speculating!
