  • I've heard the old wives tale, but all 3 of my pregnancies were about the same heart rate, 155ish. I had 2 boys and 1 girl

  • I honestly don't know what the exact rates were for the first too... But they were somewhere in the 140s I believe... Both boys...
    Now I'm pregnant with a girl and it's been in the 160's every time we've gotten a number.

  • Every time I've been to the doctor's my baby's heart rate has been between 160-165 which everyone kept trying to tell me meant I was having a girl, but I'm having a boy. It's just a myth

  • All 3 of mine were in the 150's and I have 2 boys and a girl.

  • my daughters was always in the upper 130s so it's definitely a myth

  • Sorry, I misread. I thought you were asking if we heard and if it was true.

    No one ever told me what the heartrate was...

  • With my first three, I can't remember the exact numbers, but I do know that all three were between 157-162...all three girls. The baby in my belly was 148 at my last appt, and he is a boy. : )
