I heard that the babys sex could depend on the heart rate....

I heard the babys sex could depend on the heart rate, i find out what im having next month but my babys heart rate is 160, it was 162 but the last two times i went to the dr its been 160, could someone tell me what they think it would be with that heart rate or no?

  • I wouldnt trust it. My Doctor told me the heart beat sounded like a little girls, but the ultrasound clearly showed a boy. lol

  • all three of mine were different heart was high, one low and one in the middle and they're all girls. so I never really believed in it.

  • Totally a myth, I had a little boy (11 days ago) his heart rate was usually in the 150 - 160 range, a friend of mine is having a boy and his heart rate is usually in the 120 - 130 range.

  • I wouldn't say that the heartbeat will really tell you, My baby's heartbeat was that about a month before too,and it goes to about 140 or so by the time of the ultrasound, And the ultrasound showed a boy!
    good luck to you!

  • I had heard if it's below 140 then it's a boy and above 140 then its a girl. I asked my u/s tech about it and she said there is no truth to it.

  • The day the baby is born is when you will know for sure baby's sex no matter what tests said what in pregnancy. Enjoy pregnancy and baby, be prepared for either sex until second of birth.
