Just a fun question...

This is my first pregnancy and I had my check -up today *15 wks 1 day* and got to hear the heartbeat for the first time, it was 153. And the baby was up close to my ribs. I have heard that you carry high with girls and lower with boys, and that girls have high heart rates and boys are lower.. Just for fun, what do you moms think it may be?

  • My babies are just like the old wives tales. I had a girl and her hb was always around 160. I am pregnant with a boy and his hb is always below 140. I am carrying him like a basketball and my daughter, I carried everywhere!
