  • It could be either.

  • Honestly, it could be either. It is just an old wives tale that you can tell the sex by the heartrate.

  • Heartbeats doesn't matter. You'll find out the sex between 17-22 weeks.

  • The heartbeat determination is an old wive's tale. There's no telling by the heartbeat alone.

  • It's called an old wives tale but for me when I was pregnant my son's was lower then my daughters. Both my daughters were up near the 150-160 area. My son's was around 130-140.

  • I'm with Moonwhispers. It also agree that is an old wives tale and you can't truly tell by a baby's heartrate. However, it was the same with my children. 130s and 120s for my boys and 150s for my girls.

  • Old wives tale says anything above 140 is a girl anything below is a boy.
