    No - even though by chance sometimes it might seem it. My babies h/b was around 145 (so lowish) and i was convinced she was a boy. But no. SHe has girly bits!

    My lil bubs heartbeat was 160 so maybe it is true. I'd heard the same that if its high like that about 140 its a girl and just found out today she's a lil girl.

    This is what I thought. I kind of convinced myself I was having a boy, but found out yesterday that its a girl :) Her heart rate atm is around 148bpm... there are definitely no boy bits either :rofl:

    I was looking at this the other day because Spud's heartbeat is 148ish. On the web some of the sights say below 150 is a boy and others say below 150 is a girl!:dohh: Another more reputable site said that the heart rate can go up and down throughout pregnancy anyway and it doesn't mean anything...

    I always thought that too and was convinced I was having a girl, but my midwife said the heartbeat tends to start high and come down as preg progesses
