Telling gender by the heartbeat

Do you believe in this? I asked my Dr today when he listened to the baby's hb and he said acually yes, for the most part boys tend to have a lower hb than girls. It's definitly not 100% but....

My mom said she has always known what she was having based on the hb's. My girls were both always in the 165 range. Today was the first time I've heard this baby's and it was 143...which makes me really think it's a boy (tryng not to get my hopes up...TOO LATE!) And the Dr acually said that it sounds like a boy's heartbeat to him. Anyone else able to tell by the heartbeats?

Re: Telling gender by the heartbeat

I hate to be the first to say this, but my son's hb was 160-165 and this babe is around 150, and we just found out that we are having another boy. Some people swear by that method, but our little guys are hyper I guess!

My DS had a Girl heartbeat, DD #1 had a Girl heartbeat and DD #2 had a boy heartbeat, so It just depends on the baby IMO not the gender sorry mama But OF COURSE you'll get your little man....eventually

LOL, sure...depress me, LOL

OMG two weeks it too freakin long to wait. I think I may have an anxiety attack. Maybe I should get off here and sew for awhile to get my mind off of this. I just wanna cry I'm so anxious and nervous. And we are really not wanting to have anymore after this one, so I really don't want to miss out on my little man

Re: Telling gender by the heartbeat

Heartbeat didn't tell it for me, but the first OB I had said that he was of Swedish? descent, and the folklore there was what color the mother's nipples were during pregnancy. He said that when having a boy, mama's nipples are very dark, almost black. When they are pink or light colored, it indicates a girl. Mine were very dark through all 3 of my pregnancies, and guess what? 3 boys! I am sure it is all folklore silliness, but all in good fun!!

My girls had high heart rates (160s), but guess what? My boy's was even higher at 175! This baby in utero right now is consistently in the 150s...I don't know what to guess!

Re: Telling gender by the heartbeat

The twins were always so close they thought they had the same heartbeat and they are boy/girl. I wouldn't trust it either.
