Chugging Train or Galloping Horse ... Boy or Girl?


Hi Ladies

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!

Thanks xx

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

Mine sounds like both. On my Doppler she is a train and on midwife's Doppler she is a galloping horse. I really don't believe this old wives tale. Xx

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...
