Re: 138 bpm GIRL or BOY?

We did the hair and ring thing too- and it worked for us!

Re: 138 bpm GIRL or BOY?

The reasoning behind it is that a smaller baby will have a higher heartrate while a larger baby will have a slower heartrate (just as adults have much slower heartrates than kids). Since boys tend to be bigger and girls smaller, then boys' hearts tend to beat slower than girls'. BUT if you're having a BIG girl, she'll likely have a lower heartrate and if you're having a SMALL boy then he'll likely have a higher one.

When I was pregnant with Eliana, by the end her heartrate was around 140's pretty consistently. She was 9lb 1oz. This baby has been as low as the 130's but mostly in the 140's again. We'll find out soon what we have!

Well, according to the hair/ring we're having a girl. According to the Chinese chart, it's a girl. According to the heart rate, it's a boy (but I have big babies ). Hm..

So far, we've had a 75% success rate with the Chinese chart - 3 out of 4 of ours came up correct. The only one that didn't is Aidan - it said he was a girl.

Same here - both mine were high (150's) and one boy, one girl.

Huh, that's weird. I did that chart, and it say boy - then I went and found the other Chinese Birth Chart I referenced for my other 2 (and it was correct for those 2) and that second chart says girl. Then I followed 2 other link and they both said girl???
