    I'm just curious how accurate the "old wives tale" of a fetal heart-rate of 140 bpm + means it's a girl, and anything under 140 bpm is a boy

    Thanks :flower:

    My bubba has always had a heart rate between 148 (now) and 160 and I'm having a boy!
     
  3. it's not accurate at all i'm afraid! MY heartbeat was in the low 120s when my mom was pregnant with me, and OH's heartbeat was in the low 150s when his mom was pregnant with him... :D

    Im not sure how to feel about the heart rate thing! When my mother was pregnant with me doctor went by heart rate whole pregnancy and she was due to have a boy because of it..IM A GIRL! lol They had the name Samual picked out, room decorated, and my mother had quilted me a blanket with that name on it. I carried around that blanket till I was prob. 5. So I dont think it always adds up! ;)

    I sure was hoping the heartbeat theory was right but my baby's heartbeat was constantly around 156 or 157 and its a Boy! :)

    I'm between 150-160 and we're having a girl. My doc said it was a myth, though...
