  • I'm having a girl. Hers has consistently been over 150, like more in the 160-170 range. But since I entered the third trimester, it's slowed down to 140-150 most of the time.

  • my first sons heart rate was between 160 and higher.
    this time im 17wks and its been about 160 to 170 and we arnt sure what we are having yet.
    dont believe the old wives tales they arnt true. its a 50 50 chance.

  • My son's was always fast...we didn't find out what we were having ahead of time, but at every checkup my doctor would say, "Is this a little girl? Some people say that a fast hearbeat is a girl..." There's definitely something wrong with my little "girl's" vagina, looks like a penis to me!

  • I forget what the rate was but the nurses kept seeing my sons rate and thinking it was a girl-he is very much a boy!
