  • Nope. One of my girls was 152+ the whole time, the other never got above 143 and was typically around 138 through most of the pregnancy.

  • Nopers... back in the day they guessed the sex by this, told my mom I was a boy... WRONG LOL

    Secondly, my son's heart rate was about 145 and my daughters was generally around 147... so yup, not true!

  • Nope! It's an old wives tale. My sons heart beat was really high sometimes and really low other times, so was my daughters.

  • Just a myth. I was told that the rate range was in "girl" territory and I had a boy.

  • Before they had u/s that is how the were able to guess what the sex was. But you can't be for sure with the heartbeat... GL

  • Nope. It's an old wives tale. I was pregnant with boy/girl twins and BOTH of their heart rates were always in the 150's.

  • In 1980 my mom was told I was a boy by her doc because of my heartbeat. Surprise, I was a girl and was taken home in blue clothes :)
