I'm 20 weeks pregnant and my baby's heartbeat is 145bpm. Is this normal?

yep, average heartbeat should be between 120 and 180 bpm.  My sister is a RN and she is constantly monitoring me ha ha ha, usually we are between 140-150

old wives tale has it that a faster heart beat is a girl slower heart beat is a boy. i had a fast heart beat with my daughter as soon as my mid wife heard the heart she said it is a girl and sure enough i had a girl. something for you to think about? to you question yes that is normal heart beat my daughters was really fast 163

My baby's heartbeat was 165 the first time and I thought it was a girl for the same reason.  However, I am having a boy (at least he always looks like a boy on the ultrasound!).  He is just a hyper little squirt!

On our 11 week ultrasound the hb was in the 180's, at 20 weeks in the 140's, and yep, its a GIRL.

Thank you all for your comments and for putting my mind at rest. I don't know baby's sex yet I should find out next Weds but I have a feeling that it's a boy.
