Gender prediction based on heart beat... just for fun!

Hi all,

 I've been reading the funny old wive's tales about predicting the gender based on the baby's heart rate--we just had our 12 week appt. today, and the rate was 164. Obviously this is NOT a scientific way to know (only via ultrasound), but it's fun to muse about. Based on this, we might just be having a girl! Anyone else? 

Re: Gender prediction based on heart beat... just for fun!

  • Haha our HB was 172! I'm hoping its a girl ;
  • on Monday ours was 181bpm, but I still think it is going to be a boy!  My Grandma and Mom separately have both told me that their Dr. was wrong every time based on heartbeat.  Personally, I am hoping I follow the family pattern.  Team green though so it is going to be a while...and of course I will be blessed with either!!!

  • I have heard this one also. It was right with my first two kids. DD was always around 160 and DS was always around 140. My sister is pregnant and the baby's heartbeat is high, around 160. She is having a boy.

    This one was 161. Guess we will see in around 10ish weeks. ;)

  • DS's was 160ish around 12 and 150 at 15 weeks.  It didn't drop to the 130-140 range until after 20 weeks.  So far this baby is on the same track, but since it peaks at 8 weeks I can't even guess yet.

    I can't wait for the "im getting a divorce" post in 5 years or so because your husbands were fed up with your disgusting chair asses from playing on the knot all day and getting fired 4-5 times for not doing any work. you guys are all winners!! ~ Laur929
  • Baby is HR 180, and Chinese gender calendar and cravings say girl. My first gut instinct said boy, but now i think ive fallen under the influence of the OWT's. I really have no preference though. DH however is really hoping for a girl because he thinks a girl will cause him to age less swiftly... little does he know all the trouble girls can cause!

  • By heart rate and Chinese gender chart, we are having a girl. I told DH that I dreamed we had a girl the other night, and he told me to stop thinking girl.

    He is convinced we will end up all girls, and this is our first. His mom is one of five, four girls and a boy. His dad is one of six, four girls and two boys. And he is only boy with two sisters.

  • Baby's HB was 180 and chinese gender predictor was girl and DH is a girl shooter so we will both be very surprised if it is a boy.

  • Mine was 164 today too : Dr. Guesses a girl, but we will find out for sure Feb 25th with gender determination ultrasound.
  • My mother swears by this.  At my most recent ultrasound, HB was 171, which would mean we are having a girl!

    Right?! He must not have sisters? DH is terrified of a girl, his sister raised some hell growing up and now she has a little girl who is already big trouble!

  • My daughters heartbeat was always in the 160s and 170s. And my sons was always in the 140s. But you never know for sure.
  • DS's heart rate was always 160-170s until after 20 weeks.  It then went in the 140-150 range.  So, I guess it was right for us too.

    It's got a 50/50 chance, right?

  • This reminds me of my mother telling me that this is how they predicted gender back in the day when they didn't do ultrasounds. Back then according to this theory, my mother told me she would have had one boy and one girl (I'm a twin) but she ended up with two girls :)

  • I always joke with my DH that since the hb has held steady at 160 we can't tell either way.  Our DS was around 150-155 the entire pregnancy.  So it will be exciting to learn boy or girl (we learn at 20 weeks).  I think we both want another boy, but would be happy either way.

  • This was true for both of my kids. This LO's hb was 165 at my 11 week appointment. We're completely indifferent as far as this baby's sex goes...but I'm still so excited to find out! (Basically so I can start shopping, AHEM) :)
  • Today at 10w, hb was 167, so currently looking at a girl between this and chinese gender predictor (squeaked in there on the last day of the month!), but cravings and m/s are totally the opposite this time for the most part.  DD was up in this hb range for the whole pregnancy, if I remember correctly.

    Does anyone know at one point it is considered a fairly accurate/consistent hr?  I know up until a certain point, the hb tends to be high for both boys and girls and then it "regulates" to the range it will be.  I am just curious when that generally is.

  • DD's was 174, DS's was 173, then they both went to 150's for several appointments.
