  • According to heart rate my boy should be a girl and my girl should be a boy so NO I do not believe it.

  • I had twins and the heart rates indicated a boy and a girl (if you believe this old wives tale) - I gave birth to two girls.

  • No, the old wives tale is just that, a tale. It's not accurate at all. And frankly I don't remember what was my babies' heartrate around 11 weeks.
    Congrats on the new baby ! :)

  • With my daughter her heart rate was 167, then my second child the heart rate was 152 and I so thought it was a boy then the ultrasound apparently said girl, however it was a boy, then my third child his heart rate was 149. So my daughters was a lot higher than the boys!
