Heart Beat

I went to the doctor today and heard my baby heart beat, and the doctor said it was 135 which is low. My ? is going by the heart rate does that mean it could be a boy or girl. My doctor want tell me until the 1st of the year, which sucks because im ready to start buying clothes. A friend of mind said that when she heard her baby heart beat it was high like in the 150's and she had a girl. My other friend said that she cant remember what the number was, but all she no is that it was low which later on she found out she was having a boy.

.....SO what do you think?

  • It is just an old wives tale. The heart rate fluctuates depending on a ton of things. How far along are you?

  • I can see why your doctor wants to wait until after the first. To be the most accurate to find out the gender and to check all the growth and such, they do the ultrasound around 20 weeks. Earlier then that and they can't always see the gender. Better to wait. :)

  • I heard that too but It's a myth. My babies heartbeat was over 150 until two wks ago and it's A BOY. I'm 33 wks now.
