My son had a HR around 155.
This time I'm pregnant with twins. The first few months they both had a HR in the upper 150's. We found out their genders yesterday...
Girl - HR of 148
Boy - HR of 157
So, in my case, the boys have the higher HR's.
It is an old wives tale- nothing is 100% until you actually see the body parts. I had a higher heart beat the first time we heard it, but I had caffinee that day, since then I have very little and not the day before the doctors office and it has since went down.
Old wives tales. My 1st son's hb was always higher and clearly, he's a boy. Now this one is lower so I guess it holds true this time around.
Not true. Here is a good article that HB correlation is an OWT. I like the light tone and graphics in linked article: http://www.obgyn.net/medical.asp?page=/english/pubs/features/dubose/ehr-age
That said, here you go...
HB=110 6wHB=135 7wHB=165 9wHB=158 12wHB with home doppler & at dr.= 136-160 14w+We are having a boy.
7w4d - 158 BPM
14w5d - 160 BPM
18w2d - 157 BPM
Everyone thought we were having a girl, based on the old wives' tale.
We're thrilled to be expecting a boy!
I dunno! Some swear by it and others think its a load of crap. This is my first pregnancy and the baby's HR has been btwn 160-170. Me and everyone else who knows im pregnant think its a girl. So i guess i'll just have to wait and see.
My boys had heartrates that I don't believe ever went lower than 160 or so. This baby girl we're having though has always been consistently lower than my 2 boys were.
So, it's opposite for me! All the other old wives tales seem to be opposite for my pregnancies as well.
Both my boys have had HBs regularly in the 160s.
both my boys were always 140/150 hb.
This baby was 120 at 8 weeks, 180 at 12 weeks and 121 at 16 weeks. So we'll see!
odear:Of course it does. 50% of the time.
That is what our Dr told us. Our heart rate was 160 at 14 weeks.
