? about baby's heartbeat and the gender

I have heard rumors of heart rate being a certain number and it supposed to be a girl or a boy. I can't remember the ranges. I went and got my ultrasound today and the heartbeat is at 146. I am fairly sure I am having a boy, but is that right by the heart rate standard too? Just curious.. Thanks!

There is no scientific proof that is true, it is an old wives' tale. Although, MANY people, including doctors go by it. My son's heartbeat was always at 160bpm

My baby's heartbeat was always high, like 160.  Now he's settled down and it's around 140 most of the time.  It's a boy. 

My dd did the same.  High in the beginning and then settled down toward the end.

all 4 of my girls were at 150-160.  The last one they said had a boy's heartbeat. They were wrong. Old wives tale
