Chugging Train or Galloping Horse ... Boy or Girl?
Have just been on a previous thread about telling the sex of the baby according to the heart rate and I added an alternative theory that I had heard, (possible old wives tale), that if your baby is a boy, then the heartbeat sounds like a chugging train and if it is a girl, then it sounds like a galloping horse.
Anyway because of this, I have convinced myself I am having a boy as the heartbeat definitely sounds like a chugging train, but I don't know yet what the sex is.....
So, I though that it would be interesting to see if any of you lovely ladies who know if you are having a boy or a girl also have a recording of the heartbeat that you could post here, so we can see if there is any truth in this theory so I can stop driving myself nuts!
When I first heard heartbeat on doppler at around 13 weeks I though it sounded like a choo choo train but I had to search for it as it was a bit muffly.
But from 15 weeks onwards when I started hearing it everytime I tried, I have a galloping horse in there for sure. Sounds EXACTLY like it!! She has been 150 bpm give or take since then and at 18 weeks was confirmed girl
I'm not sure!! I just spent time researching the difference between the 2 sounds, and all that I'm coming up with is that the galloping horse is faster... Is this true?? I think the first couple of times we heard the heartbeat it sounded like a galloping horse, but it was slower yesterday... Not sure what to think about this...
