HB vs Gender, OWT

All my boys were in the lower heartbeat range, 140's to max 150's. Today at my apt at 17 weeks the hb is now 145 and I'm thinking boy again Last few times it was 150's to 160's.


Have you ladies found any correalation with higher hb=girl, lower hb=boy?

Re: HB vs Gender, OWT

didn't do anything to predict the sexes of my twins. Early in my pregnancy my high-risk OBGYN joked that the heart rates of my twins would be a girl and boy if the heartbeat range actually worked. Ended up with two boys

My girl was always in the 150s-160s. My boy was always in the 140s-150s.

My teacher/midwife says that there seems to be a correlation between the excitability of the baby and their gender. Boys get more variability in their heartbeats when you ply with the belly. Girls stay around the same.

Mine was between 153-156 at all of my appointments thus far, and she's a girl!

With DD, she was always 160-170. With this one, he started out in the higher range and by 18ish weeks, settled into his current 145-150 range. He is always within this range, too.

My boys were always between 140-150, never higher, my dd was 160-170. I am excited to see where this baby's Hb # is at, although I have to wait still..lol

See 140-150 is the iffy area I believe. My DD was round there most of the time but upto 160 sometimes.

Re: HB vs Gender, OWT

I'm supposed to be having a boy (almost definitely, unless those parts fall off somehow in the next few weeks). His heartbeat is also in the 140 - 150 range at first, but he always gets all worked up when my OB is jamming a doppler into his "bedroom" and it jumps significantly - as high as 172 once!

DD#1 was always between 150-170 and DD#2 has been around 140-160. I'm hoping DD#2 is still a DD I haven't had a u/s since 18wks and even then she was being difficult. I was highrisk with DD#1 so I was always having u/s and knew she was a girl
