  • The old wives' tale is that if the heart rate is consistently above 140 then it's a girl. But this is false. Or else my son will be gay.

  • It's an old wives tale. Fetal heart rate has nothing to do with gender.

  • some doctors will tell you the faster the heart beat the more likely it is a girl, but my son usually was right around 152-175 the whole time I was pregnant depending on if it was his active time of the day, and everyone told me they thought based on that it would be a girl, and he is ALL BOY!!!!! It was so hard for me to wait....but you are half way there!!!!! You will find out soon at about 20 weeks! I kept myself busy and it went by so fast!!!!!!

  • Yes it's an old wives tell and should only be used for fun, but all 3 of mine were always in the 170s and I've got 3 girls!
