2nd Trimester

20 weeks and HB of 148 Boy or Girl any guesses?

I am 20 weeks pregnant and the dr said hb was 148 and the baby is measuring at 13oz, we had them write down the gender, but probably not finding out... Of course we are curious and want to see if anyone can tell us what their HB was at 20 weeks and if they know the gender?

  • Heartbeat predicting baby's sex is an old wives tale. If you're curious, just look at what the sonographer wrote down! Smile

  • At my last Dr appointment I was 22 weeks and the heartbeat was 148.  As you can see below, we are having a boy.  I'm glad you had a good checkup and that the baby has a strong heartbeat.  Big Smile

  • this is by no means an accurate way to gauge sex.  that said, ours has been consistently 150-152, and we're having a girl.

  • Baby's heartbeat was 133 on Tuesday at our appointment and she's a girl.  HR is definitely not a tool to gauge gender.

  • That's a good, normal heartbeat for a 20 weeker and no indication whatsoever of sex.

    FWIW, I was told "in the 140s" and we are having a girl.

  • Our baby's HB has always been in the 140's or low 150's.  We're having a girl.  I agree with the others...HB doesn't determine much.
  • With both pregnancies, each baby had a heartrate of about 150 bpm at 20 weeks. One was a girl, this one is a boy.

    This, but our heart rate was 147 at 19w3d and we're having a boy!

  • Our LO's heartbeat is always high, 160s at first, now 150s. Every old wives tale pointed to a girl, Chinese gender chart said girl, but on Mon we saw LO is definitely a boy! It's fun to guess though!

  • You can guess all you want.  But if you really want to know ask the sonographer. 

    Honestly my grandmother thought I was having a girl the first time because the heartrate was in the 150's.  This baby is in the 140's.  I'm not even beginging to guess...because I know that come Jan. 6th I will know for sure.  (And then I can start thinking about names...I've refused to think about it until then.)

  • The healthy range* that they generally look for is between 120 and 160. I've heard above 140 is a girl and below is a boy, while others have told me they have heard the opposite. What I gather? You'd might as well flip a coin.

    My son's heart rate was always higher, while this baby is also a boy, and has been consistently lower.

    *healthy range my doctor told me/I read in a book at some point

    Things to avoid during pregnancy: Eye contact with cats. Cats will suck the burgeoning life right out of you, using their infamous feline mind-powers. Avert your eyes, and move along.

    FACT: 1 in 10 people are said to be a carrier of Listeria. Therefore you should avoid all shopping malls, grocery stores and busy street corners for the duration of your pregnancy. Or microwave anyone you contact until steaming, just to be safe.
  • The HR has been in the 150's for the last two months.  We're having a boy!  Almost every old wives tale pointed to girl though

  • Old wives tales say that a hb of over 140 is a girl, but both my boys have hb's of 150+. You just can't tell a baby's sex from the hb.

  • Our LO heartbeat has been ranging between 146-155 and they think it may be a girl. Go back in 4 weeks to confirm since legs were closed.

  • My boy's heartbeat was always +150 (which OWT's say should mean girl)

  • Heartbeat doesn't matter. We're having a boy and he's had a really high heartbeat the whole time.
