What is the normal heart rate for a girl?

I was just wondering what the normal heart rate is for a girl. I'm 35wks and my baby's heart rate is usually around 135-140 and I was told it was a girl, but yet I have been talking to people and they have been telling me that that's a normal heart rate for a boy. What do you guys know?

  • Heart rate does NOT determine if it's a boy or girl..AT ALL.

  • Oh and if it did, I would have had a girl...which I didn't...but the heart rate was more like a girls according to the "old wives TALE."

  • its normal. my sons heartbeat was around that and i kept asking drs if that was normal. they all said yes baby's hearts beat a little fast. both sexes heartbeats are the same if that was the case the dr could tell if it was boy or girl by listening to the heartbeat, and not have to do an ultrasound

  • There is no "normal" heart rate for a boy or a girl. All depends on the individual baby.

  • Well the old wives tale worked in my case. My first was a girl and the hb was always in the 160's. I am now pregnant with a boy and the heartbeat has been much lower this time in the 130-140's.

  • My boy was in the 130's, and both of my girls have been 140 to 150
