 1. Is it true that if you carry low its a boy and carry high its a girl?


 2. Tell me what your babys heart beat was and if it was a boy or girl. There is  myth about if the heart beat is 140 and below it is a boy and 140 and higher its a girl.


 3. If a little boy is clung to a pregnant girl and does not want any males but its usualy the other way around if not pregnant does it mean its a girl or vise versa.



I am trying to figure out the sex before i go see my doctor but I want to see if any of the myths are true to reality.

I carried all six of my girls very low.

Heartrates were as follows

1-160s

2-130-140s

3-160s

4-160s

5-140-150s

6-130-140s


I dont know what you mean with #3 but I have all girls

#3 in belly. Gender unknown. Boy had low heartrates. Girl had high. This one has low. All the same for the heartrate myth is that you could have a sleeping baby while you're listening to its heart beating.

My son was glued to me with my daughter (gender unknown for her too) and my daughter is glued to me now. Not sure if its because of the myth and I'm carrying another boy OR if its because homeschool started and she's wanting the extra attention.

What does the father guess you are having?

id have to check by pg journals from 1 & 2 for hbs but the carrying thing wasnt true for me. i carried my son so high i joked that delivery thru my mouth was the path of least resistance for him. i carried my daughter much lower. im only 12w2d with #3 so too early to tell any of the wives tales.

im confused on what you mean in #3

I've carried about the same for all 4 of mine (two boys, two girls). The old wives tale about heart rate were true for my first girl and boy but my last pregnancy (girl) - her heart rate was on the lower side and this time it's been on the higher side (boy)

1. I carried High with my son and High this time and its a girl

2. My sons was 150's and this one was 160's but now its 130's

3. Has nothing to do with it. lol

Everything is a 50/50 chance anyway. Only real way to tell is U/S or birth. Good Luck

I did carry high with DS, I didn't show hardly at all with DD, I just got wide.

They never told me heart rates.

I don't understand the third thing you are talking about.

1. Not true at all. I carried the same way for all of my pregnancies. This is all dependent on your body type.

2. Not true again..this baby has been at a consistent rate of 153-157 and he is all boy

3. This one I'm a little iffy on because I have heard it a couple of different ways.
