Fetal heart rate at 16 weeks


Hi.

Is there any truth to the fetal heart rate gender predictions in your experience? I asked the lady in the scan a while back and she said yes it can be an indicator.

My bubs at 16 weeks was between 120-140 bpm so I am guessing boy.

Thanks

Ooo i'm interested to here about this (although pretty sure it's not a great indication of gender).... Had my 16 week appointment yesterday and baby's heart rate was 145-155bpm!

My little boy has always been 150-160 and even has the galloping sound associated with girls so maybe not...

The fetal heart rate thing is a myth. Apparently there is some truth in it AFTER 28 weeks, but prior to this the heart beat is still regulating so changes often.

At 12+4 my baby's heart rate was 160pm, then at 17+5 it was 132-145bpm, then the other day I counted with the doppler and it was around 148/150bpm - always changing!
