  • did your ultrasound show a girl? or are you still too early to find the sex out? my doc told me a fast heartbeat usually indicates a girl but it realistically can go either way. at around 3 months the heartbeat should be between 130 and 160, and then it will start to slow down towards the 2nd trimester, or atleast thats what my doc says.

  • Heart rate has nothing to do with the sex

  • Heartbeat means squat about the sex. It's an old wives tale. I have 5 kids, and their heartbeats were all over the charts, and did not go with the supposed "norm" as far as what they were vs their heartrate. So yes, it could be a girl - 50% chance, just like 50% chance it's a boy. Don't take an ultrasound for sure either - they can be and are sometimes wrong too - trust me, it happened to me and to a handful of friends of mine.

  • girls heartbeats tend to run in the 150s and boy run in the 130 so i would say yes but you never know
