Heartrate and Babies gender


I wanted to know if there is any truth to the wives tale that if bubs heart rate is over 140 it is a girl.. or if below it is a boy. So for those who know the gender of there bumps lets see.

Could you check the poll the box and post babies gender and how many weeks you were when finding heart rate.

At my 13wk 1day NT scan Twin 1's heart rate was 146 and Twin B's was 149. I don't know gender at the moment, will find out Tuesday 2nd March.

hmm, at my ultrasound at 12 weeks it was 184.......... and at 18 weeks 165. Is that not normal? They never said anything about it being too high so I assumed it was

I couldn't vote on any, sorry, as my little man's heartbeat keeps changing! At his 11wk scan it was about 160bpm, and as he's gotten older it keeps changing. I really don't think there's too much to this theory but it's always fun guessing xx

Hi ladies!! I just wanted to say that allthough I had never heard about this theory prior to pregnancy I completely believe its true....during the early stages of my pregnancy I was convinced I was having a girl, dont know why, I just had a feeling but at my 10 week dr appt my dr checked the heartbeat using a doppler and made an off hand comment saying "I would guess your baby is a boy based on his heartrate, slow and steady at 132 bpm" at my next 14 week appt he was the same, 136 and again the dr told me she thought it was a boy, I still wasnt convinced so at 16 weeks I went for an ultrasound and before the technician started the scan I asked her if heartrates and gender really were related, she told me based on her experience in ultrasounds they were, that boys had lower heartrates and girls had higher ones, during the scan she confirmed....baby is a boy! I just used a doppler again today at 18 weeks and babys heart rate was in the 120's so at least in my case the heart rate did correlate with gender, Im sure thats not the case for every single woman however I have noticed it is for the majority...good luck and let us know when you find out the gender!!

Poppy's heart rate was around 160 at our antenatal checks and she's a girl Haven't actually seen what this LOs heart rate is yet but I'm not sure I believe there's any truth in the theory...
