With my last pregnancy I was having a boy and it was always in the 130's. This time it is a girl and the heart rate is in the upper 150's to 160's. Girls usually have the higher rates and boys the lower rates but of course it is not always very accurate.
I just found out last week that I'm having a girl and the heart rate was 140 but don't believe that wives tale. The only one so far that I believe is accurate from my results and others is the ring/pencil test. Also, my technician doing the ultrasound said a nervous mommy with a high heart rate will result in a nervous baby with a high heart rate.
