  • Boys average a higher fetal heart beat than girls, but only by 1 bmp. If you want to know, and ultra sound is much more reliable. The good heart beat range is 130-190.

  • the wives tale I have heard says over 140 is a girl but let me tell you I have a 3 yo boy whos heartrate was always in the 150's and I am preg with a boy and his has also been in the 150-160's. So I dont take much stock in this. I think it may have more to do with what you have ate for lunch that but thats me. Good Luck
