Baby Heart-Rate = Gender????
Hiya everyone,
                     Using my Home doppler device i regulary check for my babies heartbeat i count the beats per minute every time and each time im getting 156 beats per minute!! I know that there is an old wives tail about the sex of the baby going by how many bpm the heartrate is but some people i know actually went by this and it was correct!!...so what do you think???

I have a doppler that they use at the doctors office at home and listen to the heart rate often and it jumps from 130-160 on a daily basis. Just like with adults their heart rates differ depending on what they are doing. For instance if they are kicking and awake its usually higher and if they are sleeping or resting its usually lower. Unfortunately it is 100% old wives tale.

I agree with alaysha...both of my kids have had resting heart rates at about 135 that shoot up to 165ish when they're active...and I have a 21-month old daughter and am expecting a boy this week...so it's just an old wives' tale...but it's fun to speculate :). the thing you have to remember about the people who went by it and they were correct....it's GOING to be correct half the time, just by odds. :)

I was pregnant with twins. Both boys. The heart rates fluxuated from 125ish to 160ish.  It's an old wives tale.

i've had 3 boys and am pregnant with my 3rd girl and ALL of their heartbeats started out higher (170's to 180's) in the first trimester, slowing down to 140's to 150's in the second and settling in the 120's to 130's in the third trimester.  It didn't matter what the gender was.

its hard to judge the gender based on the heart beat....my sons heart beat was in the 150s until after 20 weeks and im currently pregnant with a girl and her heart beat has been holding steady in the 145's range...actually last appt she was 135 (must have been sleeping)....im currenlty 28 weeks now and have had 4 u/s that confirm the gender

also my neighbors daughter is preg and the heart beat has been in the 150s the whole time and she's having a boy

its a 50/50....congrats on the preg

Funny... At 13 weeks my son was in the 140s and at 13 weeks my daughter was in the 170s.  This one, we find out on the 28th was in the high 160s at 13 weeks so I'm thinking girl!  We'll see.  The first two worked for me though.

The heart rate does go down too as the baby grows, so I only really judged based upon that appoinment.
