my babies heartbeat is 153 wat does that indicate is it a gal or a boy?

I think boy. But if you are reaaly curious, check out the Chinese birth chart.


tara - April 11

apperently this is just an old wives tale. All this indicates is that your baby is healthy :o)


tara - April 11

I forgot to mention that the tale goes if it's above 140 it's a girl and if it's below 140 it's a boy.

Determining your babys s_x by the heartbeat is not very reliable. My babys heartbeat was 184 when I was 9 weeks, then 160,154,140,and now 160. The U/S tech said we are having a boy but I thought that it was a girl before I even had my 2nd u/s because the heartrate was high, but I guess it's not really that accurate =)


heather - April 12

to be completely honest it just indicates its alive in there!.. heartrate isnt very reliable..


tara - April 12

Here is where this oldwives tale came from... A baby's heart rate is not affected by its s_x until it is born, when a girl's heart rate will increase considerably compared with boys during labor. Since a while back they didn’t have the means to listen to the hb in the womb the a__sumption was since a girl’s hb is higher during labor and right after birth that it must be so in the womb as well. But science has proven this not to be so true. :o)

How neat to know that. Thanks Tara. I always find it interesting to figure out where these things came from.


tara - April 12

Your welcome! I like to find the origin of things and I happen to stumble up on this one.

Ann, the chinese birth chart was wrong for me all 4 times. Also I have 4 girls & their heartbeats were always 150 to 160 something. Never below 150 but I do know women who have had girls & their heartbeats be under 150.

my baby's heartbeat is between 150-155 and I am having a boy.

Nick - April 16

I am having a boy. At 9 weeks the heartbeat was at 180, 13 weeks-172, 17 weeks-154 and at 20 weeks 148.

That's normal. Don't worry.


Heather - May 12

that the baby has a heart.. the rate means nothing! my litle girl has been anywhere from 143 to 160.

It indicates that your baby is healthy, nothing more.
