Accuracy Of Fetal Heart Rate

My wife had her second doctor's appointment and she was able to hear the baby's heartbeat for the first time. (I missed it due to having to pick up our son from pre-K). I was wondering how accurate a heart rate was in estimating how far along she is. The heart rate is 150 bpm and she is supposed to be 13 weeks along.

Hi Matt! The fetal heartrate can be anywhere from 120-160 BPM. I had my 20 week appointment yesterday and my little girl is at 155BPM. Nice and strong and healthy! Good luck to the both of you!

I've never heard of a heart rate measuring how far along she is. I have heard that you can predict gender via heartrate, though.

Ditto about never hearing that heart rate had anything to do with how far along you are.

Year heartrate doesn't have anything to do with how far along she is. And a heartrate can't really predict gender, that's an old wives tale. If it were true, I would be a man, and that I am definately not! :o) Congrats on your baby.
