Heart rate gender prediction

What were your baby's heart rates and what did you end up having? I know the old wives tale says lower rate means boy and higher means girl, but I'm curious how many of you that worked out for :]

That's completely false... its just an old wives tale. Its true for some and untrue for others as it means nothing. It has been wrong for mostly everyone I know. My babies heart rate is always high.. 150-160 and im 100%so having a boy.
Try the baking soda method.. I heard that works for a lot of people.. although that could be false too. Lol

My baby's heart beat has always been under 160..... a friend of mine told me I was having a boy when I was 8 weeks. 2 weeks ago I found out I was having a boy!!!! So she was right.
She says if under 160 it's a boy over 160 is a girl. Her Dr let her in on that secret.

I had an ultrasound at 6 weeks, and the hr was 126 or something like that. Then the next ultrasound it was 179. I had a girl. My SIL's first ultrasound at 7 weeks where they could see a heartbeat, it was 130's, and she was determined it was a boy. The next one it was 160's. She had a girl. My cousin's first ultrasound was 130's and she had a boy. I just think it's one of those things. It has a 50% chance of being right!

It has a 50% chance of being right because its a false accusation.... of course its going to sometimes be right and sometimes be wrong because it isn't true.........
I asked my doc about it and she said the heart rate has nothing to do with the gender.

I honestly don't believe in that because my girls were lower than my boys. And my boys were more active than my girls. I hear all sorts of tales but its something I don't go by.

Its always interesting to put those old wives tales to the test! I read about the baking soda one- sounds interesting! Any other gender prediction methods? How you're carrying- all around vs all belly, High vs low? Girls take beauty and boys give it- were you 'pretty' during your pregnancy?
