    I had a midwife app yesterday and heard my babys heartbeat for the first time. I was telling my sister and she asked if the midwife had written it down. When I asked why she told me the old wives tale where you can tell the sex of the bay depending on the rate of the heartbeat. If its over 150 its a girl and under a boy. If its true I am having a boy (will find out on Tue!)
    What is everyone elses experience of this, has it come true and what are you predicted to have?
    Just a bot of fun, dont worry I havent gone out and bought a whole blue wardrobe yet, lol.

    I also have heard this wives tal but after looking at other peoples heartrates for their LO it really doesnt seem to effect it. As some women have said the heart rate is 160 and they're having a boy. I definitely wouldnt go by it but let us know when you find out :D x x

    I have a doppler that has an LCD screen so we get to see the heart rate of our little girl and she usually has a beat of about 145 ish so in my experience the old wives tale isnt true :)

    I wouldn't count on the heart rates. My 8 week appt. it was 160..probably having a girl right? Then at 13 weeks ir was 145...so now I'm having a boy? The heartrate fluctuates, I hope to know for certain next month though!

    This is what I read to and there is no correlation. I did a lot of reading into it. Flumps rest was 158 and he is a boy.
