138 bpm GIRL or BOY?

Wondering what the old saying is? low girl or boy? I can't for the life of me remember what hb was for previous babies. But can you really expect me to, I'm pregnant you know?

Its supposed to be high=girl, low=boy but both my babies had high heart-rates. One was a girl and this one is a little boy

The old wives tale about taking a peice of your hair and tying it around your wedding ring then hangin it over your belly does work though-it did with dd~haven't tried it this time. Swings in circles=girl, swings back and forth=boy.

Re: 138 bpm GIRL or BOY?

girls are suppose to be higher, boys lower.

This little stud was at 170 easily in the beginning, now he's dropped to 140 or so. So, myth busted.

I was a 130 hb baby and doc said I was a boy. Lemme tell ya, I ain't.

It's always high in the beginning and somewhere around week 12 should level out to where it's going to be.
DD was 160's
this one (I guess we can call him DS now ) is 140's

Re: 138 bpm GIRL or BOY?

Adrien always had a HIGH hb...around the 180's until later in the pregnancy. He was always active! Even at the end, his HB was around 150bpm. So, the saying high means girl..was just that, a saying for us.

boy

My girls have always been 155-175. And when I had the ultrasound at 15weeks with this one the tech could only be 70% sure it was a girl but based on that and the 160's heartrates, I'm guessing girl too!

just tried this. got a girl in there!!!! Okay so between 70% sure for the ultrasound tech, the heartrate and the ring test, we've got a girly butt in the belly!!!!
