    I would categorise this as an old wives tale yes, but, my mum had twins and the girl had a faster heart rate than the boy. Having said that not too many people have the benefit of having twins to compare.
    I think it goes if the heart rate is ove 140 bpm its a girl and if its under 140 its a boy, well I have 4 boys all with heartrates over 140 (my last boy averaged 155 and I was convinced girl)
    Even with all this I love to guess!!

    It's rubbish! Apparently above 140 it's a girl and below is a boy. Mine is 160 and is a boy and my friends is 130 and is a girl!!!

    My doctor guessed boy based on baby's heartrate.. I think it was like 141 when she guessed.. but I had a girl! Her heartrate was 150s in my other visits during pregnancy btw.

    mine has ranged from 137 to 165 during monitoring. I have been told no matter the gender, at about 8wks, you can expect them to be about 180.

    Oh, and I'm expecting a boy.

    All of mine have been between 120bpm - 200 bpm, or did you mean the sound cos I heard one was meant to sound like horses, the other a train, or something like that, but thats rubbish too :rofl:
