  • Higher heartbeat is supposed to be a boy. Don't take it seriously though.... Nothing is going to tell you specifically other than an ultrasound and someone with a medical degree.....

  • It simply means that you're 13 weeks and 2 days pregnant, and your baby's heartbeat was 173, nothing more.

    However, if you want a random guess, I'll say girl.

  • I'm going to GUESS you are having a boy!

    And if I'm wrong she will definitely be a girl;)

  • I thought that a high heartbeat meant girl. It was true with both of mine. They both ranged from 155-179.
