  • you really can't go by the heart beat. Cause if the baby is sleeping it will be lower....then when it is sleeping.

  • Both my sil that just had there babies one had girl and one had boy. I told them what they were having by the heart beat and the same was true for my dd. But i don't think it always works. I would say by the heart bit its a girl but the baby might have been really active right before so the heart beat could have been up. Or its just a high heart beat for a boy. When do you go in to have an ultra sound do???

  • My son has regularly been 155 - 160 I don't think the heartbeat method is reliable. Heck, even sonograms can be wrong. I know I wanted to know right away and I was so anxious to know what names to look for -- good luck!

  • I'm having a boy, and on the one U/S it said 146bpm, but every apt now it just has a "+" sign, because they don't put the #'s on it. It's just a good HB.

  • I just had a little boy this year and when I was pregnant his heart beat was always 160's. Although every baby is different no matter boy or girl....

  • My baby's heartbeat has always been in the 160's, I hope its a girl. I don't even remember my son's 4 years is a long time to remember those numbers!!
