No Where in live in a small town they will not tell you the sex of your baby which kinda sucks. I will be happy whatever it is but i was just wondering about the numbers thanks for the input

Everyone says different. My experience is my DD's heartbeat has been between 120's-140's through out my pregnancy.... except the very beginning. Did you not have a u/s done to find out the sex?

I can get a 3-d ultrasound but its about a 3 hour drive away and i can;t imagine doing that on a full bladder and i live in canada so if i just do the routine ones they are free but the 3-d one is about 250

all my predictors said girl, the heartbeat at 7 weeks was 184, then it was 174 and on monday it was 140 and she was sleeping.  its a girl lol.  but another poster had a boy and his heart rate was 154.  they wont tell you? like its not your right to know? do you live outside of the states?

you don't have to have a full bladder for the u/s. When I have a full bladder they have a harder time seeing anything.

at 25 weeks they wouldnt have you drink.  i just had my u/s this week at a few days shy of 18 weeks and i did have to drink water.  a full bladder causes the bladder to move away from the uterus so they can see without it in the way.

I didn't have to have a full bladder to have a 3/d u/s at 20 weeks, but I am in the States. Both my daughters had hb's in the 170-160's the first time we heard it, so I guess that is considered fast.

There is no scientific link between gender and heartbeats!  I found a site that somoene did a charting study, and the rates for both genders were all over the place!  So, sorry to say there is NO correlation!  I still do the same thing though.  I was 175 at 8 weeks and 157 at 12 weeks (baby was FULLY active), so who knows!  Good luck on trying to find out!  I am 13 weeks, so 7 more to go!

Hi Michelle, well people always told me that a higher heartbeat means girl. Well my little man heartbeat has always been in the 160's since I found out I was pregnant. So I don't think that the heartbeat really means anything... Just my hunch!

I've just (out of interest) done the babyzone predictor test and it's correct. I was told at my 20 week ultrasound I'm having a boy and it says the same.
