  • Honestly i think it doesn't work. I have 3 girls and my oldest had a high heart rate, my middle one always sad a very slow one (not really slow but on the low end of the spectrum) and my youngest would be fast one visit and slow the next. I think it just depends on what the baby is doing.

  • It is just an old wives tale! My oldest daughter was in the 160's my whole pregnancy, but my youngest daughter was always in the 140's. I was really hoping for a boy while I was pregnant with my 2nd so I wanted to believe the myths.. So didn't pan out that way!! But now I am happy as can be with my 2 girls ♥

  • Its a old wives tale- BUT my daughter was around 160s and my son is in the 130s this time :) So its was true for me!

  • All of my kids heart rates have been pretty much the same - I have 3 boys, 1 girl and am expecting another girl. (And at the last heart rate check, hers was in the 130s)
