Does a girls heartbeat faster than boys?

So, I heard my baby's heartbeat for the first time! :D I am 10 weeks pregnany And my midwife told me I had a girl's heartbeat of 164! I've read that the girls heartbeat are usually faster than boys. And I want to know how true is that! Does anyone had a girl's heartbeat and ended up with a boy? Or the other way around?

Sorry it's not true actually.. my first was a girl and her heartbeat was always in the 160s  second was a boy and his was usually in the 140 to 150s. This time I'm having a girl and her heart beat is also in the 150s sometimes lower. Every baby is different. Best of wishes tho for your pregnancy :)

I'm pregnant with my second child. His heart beat is always in the 150-160 range. My daughter's was also. Just an old wives tale. The doctor will tell you the same thing.

It's sort of true.   A higher heartbeat is a little more likely to be a girl - but not all that much more likely.  I think it's like 60-40.

At my 12week scan for this bub hb was 167 and then from 20weeks onwards its been a steady 150. I'm 28weeks now with a boy but my girls where faster.

With my son he was in the 160s and I'm currently pregnant with my daughter and here heart rate stays around 152-154. But it honestly just depends
