First appointment down. Heartbeat was 162 and we got cute little ultrasound pics. Dh went with and he said he feels a lot better after sweing baby and the heartbeat. He then asked "is 162 fast or slower cause they say girls heartbeats are faster right?" Lol i told him i dont think we can go by that just yet cause babies so small. He is super excited now. Oh and i told him of all the surprise twins so right before we went in he tells me if its twins im going to gave to build a room downstairs. Lol thankfully theres only one.

Im going to pull out my dd babybook to see what her heartbeataveraged. Doea anyone else believe the hifher for a girl lower for a boy?

Yay for a good appointment! Its so nice to actually see the baby and heartbeat. Makes it that much more real! As for the fast heartbeat for a girl and slow for a boy, I don't trust it. My son was always between 150-160. AND all the chinese gender charts said girl.

My boys always had higher heartbeats (160s-170s), especially in the first trimester, so I definitely don't buy into it. They did tend to even out the farther I got along, averaging 135-150 in the 2nd and 3rd trimesters.

So glad all is well. I'm not sure you can trust that heartbeat myth....

Glad you got a pic.

Yay on a great appointment! I do believe they say the faster the HB is supposed to be a girl. As far as I can remember this did play true to my pregnancies with DD and DS.

If you're curious go to Baby BPM, you can plug in your stats, but it said both my boys were girls, so there's that lol.
