I'll find out on Monday, but heart rate this morning was 147 bpm. The heart rate at 10 weeks was 162 bpm. Based on the old wives tale it should be a girl, be we'll see. I keep going from just knowing it's a girl to thinking its a boy. With DS, I just knew he was a boy, but this baby has me guessing everyday! LOL!
Can't wait to find out! Mine should be a girl according to the old wives' tale. I feel pink! Running consistently 150's-160.
at my US at 11 weeks babys HR was 160......so girl?? However ......
1st preg.~ Baby A's HR was always 140'a and Baby Bs HR was always 160's.....identical twin BOYS
2nd preg~ HR was always in the high 130's...BOY
3rd preg~HR was always in the 140's......GIRL
4th preg~ HR was always in the high 160's........BOY
As you can see my kids go against those "tales"...lol

I am pretty sure that if this is true that it isnt really valid for awhile. I think how far along you are really makes a difference.

This baby is definitely a boy and his heartrate has always been in the 160s so far. Like someone else said, as I got further along with my first son his heartrate did go down to more 'boy' rates, but my girls went down too. My first son's heartrate was a little lower than this one and my girls throughout the pregnancy, but this baby boy is about right where my girls were

My midwife said that ALL babies, boy or girl, were normally in the upper 150s or 160s in the first trimester and that sometimes in the second is when you'd see the slow down. But that she doesn't think that heart rate tells much about baby other than it has a heartbeat. SHe's never seen a correlation.
Oh and I forgot....I read somewhere online that this one woman's nurse claims she has a 90% success rate on guessing gender just by what the heart beat sounds like and she was apparantely correct in guessing hers. Girl sounds like the agitator on a washing machine and boy's sound like a horse galloping. Don't know how accurate this is, but it was something fun that I had heard. Probably works just as well as the string and wedding ring test. LOL! Any gender test besides u/s will be a 50/50 chance of being right so maybe the nurse just gets lucky.
