  • Yes, a human child. Other than that I don't believe in the old wives tales.

  • no, all of my daughters had different heart rates and they're all girls. my youngest fell into the lower category which is supposedly "boy" but she is 100% girl

  • I was told my oldest was a girl...based on heartbeat, an ultrasound, and every old wives tale that my family new about.

    I have 3 boys.

    It's a 50/50 guess, so it will be right sometimes....but not because it's true.....

  • It worked for both of my children. They had a higher heartbeat, and were both girls. But it could of just been luck.

  • Supposdely it is an old wives tale but my daughter's was always high. At 9 1/2 weeks, it was 179 and it never got under 159.
