Heart rate...

So this is my second pregnancy. I had my first prenatal visit the other day.
When the mid wife was do my physical she said that I felt like I was a little further along than my due date and the babies heart rate was 174.
Could I possibly be having twins or maybe a girl?
My sons heart rate never got past 150/160 when he was moving like crazy.

I'm just curious as to what everyone thinks.
Btw. I'm 11 weeks and six days.

That's an old wives tale and not very accurate. My daughter's heart rate hasn't been over 160.

My son's heart rate was in 170 range the first few months then started slowing down to 150-160 range.

My first DD -- her heartrate was consistently high.  Doc said "oh, so you're having a boy?"  (I didn't know.) 

This one (another girl) has had a lower heartrate -- normaly in the 140's.  

Each baby is different.

That's an old wives tale. My first son's heart rate was in the 150's. When I was pregnant with my 2nd the heart rate was between 170 all the way up to 186! I thought for sure that meant girl, but he's all boy. I am pregnant with my 3rd now and this one was at 182 at 8 weeks and 162 at 12 so it will be interesting to see what it is.

I know it's an old wives tale. I was more curious about the twin part. Ooh well i guess.

I'm not sure about twins. I'm not sure how well the 2nd heart beat will pick up in the doppler. Have you had an ultrasound yet? I was concerned with my 2nd son when his heart rate was at 186 early on that it was too high and they said it was normal.

So far they said I won't have one til I'm 16 weeks. I just hate the waiting game.

Quoting Stephanie3804:

My boys were in the 160's and my girl was in the 140's.

Could your conception date be off?  My DD's heartrate was in the 170s, both my sons' were in the 150s.
