  • Once again no not true. Heartbeat has nothing to do with it my son stayed at 140 and I am now having a girl she is staying at 143 what you are speaking of it actually and old wives tale. My best friend is having a baby boy and his heartbeat is in the 160's

  • my daughters hearet rate was 169-173 through out the preg. my first child (which was a bo whom we lost) was 143-158. so i personally would say yes. but thats just me.

  • lol you sound like my husband and myself, I drove him completely nuts doing every old wives tale thing online that I could to help me determine the sex of the baby. Finally the day came and I didn't have to drive either one of us crazy anymore lol
