Everyone keeps telling me that I'm having a girl because the heartbeat is fast (usually 160) and if it's low it's a boy?! Has anyone found this to be true??? :-P

i have heard that too, but it also depends on genetics - a friend of mine was told hers had a strong heartbeat so she thought it might be a girl but then she talked to her MIL and found out that all her kids had strong heartbeats... now she knows she is having a boy. So it could be true, but not always :)

I was told I was having a girl on my first one just because I carried it high instead of low...carried high on the second too..both boys...those tales don't mean a thing as far as I'm concerned..just get a sonogram at 5months and calm your curiosity..then you'll know what clothes to buy and be showered with!

from the first i heard the heart beat it was above 160, the lowest it has ever been was 156. And it is a girl, twice they have told me that so, i dont know that it is ture but with my baby girl it is

I am having a boy and when I hear his heart it beats like he is playing drums for def lepard... I heard the same story but the other way around...

jessica what was your baby's heart rate?

 

;-) - May 1

my mom had 8 kids (4 boys/4 girls)and she said it was true with every single one of them!

 

nelly - May 4

chel - May 5

Both of my girls had heartrates in the 160's. With this one, it was 159 the other day. That sounds like a girl to me. However, I feel different this time and I am carrying different. I really feel in mu gut that it is a boy. I had drunk a caffenated coke ( my little treat every now and then) right before my appointment so maybe that affected it. I have an ultrasound on June 1 and can't wait to find out.

 

mel - May 10

let us know when you find out chel!

 

Donna - May 18

My baby's heart rate is 148 and I am having a girl.

 

Jessica - June 2

I found that when i was pregnant with my son everyone told me that it was a boy because of the heartbeat. It stayed around 140 and when i had ny ultrasound it was a boy!!!!!!!!

 

Kelly - June 7

Both of my girls heart rates were high (148-160) throughout my pregnancy. I am pregnant with my 3rd and the heart rate so far is 138 so we'll see at my next ultrasound in two weeks if it's a boy or girl. Hoping for a boy!

I heard that boys hearts beat faster. My sons was 162

My OB told me there was no truth to it. She never mentioned if the heartbeat was fast or slow with my son.
