  • Old wives tales say over 140 is girl...under 140 is a boy.

    My baby was 177 the other day...

  • I am close to 11 weeks and I do not know yet. But I have a strong feeling it a girl. Just my motherly instinct. AND all the old wives tales point to girl too :)

  • I don't think that is considered anything yet. It's just alive! :)

    A boys heart beat is normally between 130-140 and a girls is over 145. I think. I don't remember. :) Check out the site babycenter.com They have all kinds of information there. Plus videos that show you what your baby looks like week by week. :)

  • I am 25 weeks pregnant and having a girl. Her heartbeat has been consistently above 150 bpm, but my 2 boys were the same.

  • Its amazing at how much like a baby they look at just 6 weeks. Most people have no idea that they look like that...they think they are just a blob of cells...SOOO NOT TRUE!

    Its neat to think of your baby looking like that inside of you and being so tiny :)

  • well i think that is normal heart rate for baby and that stuff about slower and faster is just an old wifes fable their is no possible way because different things can cause a babys heart to beat faster or slower...hope it helps
