my babys heart rate is 160...

I was told by my best friend who has a boy that his heart rate was 160 so i could possibly have A boy, is that true?

  • My sons heart beat was between 156-160 up until week 36 where it dropped to the 140's. They say a faster heart rate is a sign of a boy, but thats a myth, and yet to actually be studied or proven.

  • I think it's just a normal heart rate. As I remember my daughter's heart rate was also around 160.

  • My DD's heart rate was about 160, the baby I am pregnant with now was about 160 also and I will find out what this baby is in two weeks.

  • I've heard boys have slower heart rates than girls... my dd's heart rate was 130's and I was told by my dr who had been in L&D for years she was a boy because of her slow heart rate. It's all a myth and you won't know until they either do the ultrasound or baby comes out!

    Yes, it is possible you could have a boy, also very possible you could have a girl.
