  • I think it drops to 5 percent after first trimester, but I really don't know. I am sorry. I never worried about it .

  • I had heard the chances drop after the heart starts beating and yes its sounds liek a good strong heart rate plus it might be a girl if u go by the old wives tale GOOD LUCK!

  • im not sure if your chances drop or not but it sounds like a good strong heartbeat and i wouldnt be going by any old wives tales lol they say girl if its 150 or higher but im having a boy and his is always like 157 or 160 and has been since the first ultra sound. But wont matter congrats and i wish you the best of luck.
