I was so sure I was having a girl before the 20 week ultrasound because the heartbeat was always in the 160's. But as it turns out, I am having a little boy. Still his heartrate has not fallen below 155 so far.

Serious old wives tale. My sons heart rate was always high and he turned out to be a boy. I found out this one is a girl and her heart rate is always on the lower side. It depends on if the baby is moving at the time of your U/S too.

I'm not sure of the heart rate on my last appointment, but I am having a boy. I have to say that the last pregnancy was a girl and the heartbeat was pretty fast, this time, its not as fast - but the doctor says its a healthy heartbeat!

I've heard that if its a fast heartbeat, its a girl and if its a slower heartbeat, its a boy. But that can just be a myth!!!

I dont know what his heart rate was at my appointment yesterday, but 3 days ago in L&D while I was hooked up to the monitor it went everywhere! From the 110's to the 150's. I guess that's normal.

My little girl has been in the 150's from day one, it varies just a little but always in the 150's so i guess what they say is right!

Our last appointment the heartbeat was 155 and yesterday it was 162. We also found out its a girl so it seems correct for me.

My doctor told me that the higher heart rates are girls and the lower ones are boys but you cant always go by that because im having a boy and his heart rate was high. The first us his heart rate was 158 then my second one the heart rate was 143 the US tech said that if they are moving its high if they are just laying there than its low.

I am really confused now... I'm feeling a girl but u/s was kinda blurry and showed a boy. the heart rate today alone was done twice by two different dr. the first one was 136. the second one was 148. the other gender test I have taken online say "girl". i'm so confeused. i want a healthy baby but i would like to start shopping and preparing. as you can see, i have a girl and two boys.. what do you think?

Both of my boys had high heart rates in the womb... so I don't put too much into the heartrate theory - although every OB nurse (and OB) I've had always brings it up! (And they've been wrong both times). Also, as the baby gets larger the heartrate naturally slows a bit.

I was also told that how you carry a baby really can't be determined until you're well into your pregnancy (7th or 8th month)... but who knows!

I can't wait to find out the sex of this little one! The heartbeat at 12 weeks was 180, and the heartbeat at 16 weeks was 165. We'll find out (hopefully) at our next appt. on Apr. 5th!

I don't remember with my first two what their heartbeats were, but with my last one, I thought he might be a girl. I had a scare with him around 12 weeks and went to the ER. The doc there said that with the heart rate, (It was above 150) it would probably be a girl. I was so excited. When I had my u/s it showed a boy. We asked my doc about what the ER doc had said and he said of course, old wives tell.

I think these tells are fun to read, but I definitely don't put much faith in them. I carried my girl low and just in my belly, my boys were high and all over. I go Thursday for my u/s. If the way I carry is any indication, it's a girl, but we'll see! Good luck to everyone else!

Just found out yesterday It's A boy, I'm so excited. My husband's grin on his face all day yesterday was a kodak moment. I threw the whole heartbeat theory out the window though b/c the baby's heartrate was 162 which would mean girl right? Anyways i couldn't be happier :)

It wasnt right for me, its a shame too because I have two boys and really wanted a girl. This old wives tale wasnt the only one wrong, every one I did told me it was a girl.

The heart beat was always around 155 and I am having a boy, so I guess you never know. :)

With the whole wives tale thing, there are a couple. One being the heartbeat, if it is high(above 140 it is a girl) if it is low is is a boy(below 140), the other is how you are carrying. If it is high is is a girl, if low it is a boy. According to both of these mine is a girl, but we will see if they are right next friday!


U/S 4/6/06 It's a boy!! His name is Jaidan Ray!! He is already so cute!!

I worked at an OB-GYN and always tried to guess what the sex of the baby was by using the fetal doppler. I was usually 90% of the time right. If the hb was low 140's and below, it was a boy, high 140's and above girl (in btw those two was up for grabs). So far I was right with myself too. My baby started around 160. Than evetually went down to high 140's to low 150's. And I am having a girl. This is an old wives tale, but it is really ironic how many times I was right than wrong. Something to think about!!

Hubby and I are hoping for a girl so I'm REALLY wanting the wives tale to be true. Now I have to try the ring thingy to see what it says. Hee! I have my u/s on April 3 and I've never been so anxious for something in my life. :)

My babies heart rate was 156 at 12 weeks and shes a girl. When I check it at home it is usually alot higher than this so she does have a strong heartbeat.

I think 140 is the general cut off but I've heard 150 as well.
My U/S tech said 140-150 is always a shot in the dark.
High is girl, low is boy.



I was suposed to be a boy based on my heartrate when my mom was pregnant.

My little gecko's heartrate was steady at 136 which is cools as I'm hoping for a boy!

That is so interesting. It's funny cause at my first ultrasound..my ob threw me off by mentioning the old wives tale in correlation to my baby's strong heart beat.

I was a little annoyed that he threw me off like that.. I was happy not having any clue..and then.. he made me have some notions..

Thanks for your post!! ;-)

Everything I've read/heard says:

140 and above - girl
139 and below - boy

My little girl has registered in both ranges but closer to the lower end of girl/higher end of boy.

I'm having a little boy and his heartbeat was 156 at my u/s on Friday....

You never can tell....

From what I hear, girls are supposed to be stronger than boys in the womb....

Going by the wives tale what would a HB of 154-160 imply? Boy or girl? My little ones heartbeat has been in this range every time.

for both my girls it was completely opposite. if you went by the heartbeat my first was a girl (which she was), and then for my second would have been a boy (she's a girl)

this one's heartbeat I can't remember the exact number but it said boy.

haven't had an ultrasound late enough yet to get the sex though. which we want to know.

The heartbeat wives tale was not right for me.

My little girl's heartbeat was in the 130's in February and was 142 last week at the ultrasound. That's pretty low for a girl.
