Just wondering for those of you with babies already, how did the babies heartrate during pregnancy relate to gender? i have heard the old wives tail that over 140 bpm is a girl and under is a boy. how true has this been for you? Our baby is usually around 148-156 bpm, but no idea of the gender for another few weeks yet!

Ok I have been dopplering since 10+2 - heartrate has never gone below 156....and I doppler 3 or 4 times a day  :-[

I am expecting a girl!!! So true for me.

I have 3 boys and average herat rates were 140's and below - it was only towards the end of pg when i was put on the monitor for 20 mins at a time that you get a good average reading and for me it was certainly true. My gp has 2 boys, 1 girl and she insists it was accurate forall 3 of hers as well  ;)

What a great thread - I was thinking of starting one similar. I also don't know what I am having but hb is always around 158 - 168 so would be interesting to know if it is a girl...

Every time I was monitored (which was quite a bit towards the end of both pregnancies) ds would be 150/160 and dd 140, so completely reversed for me.

reversed for me too!

DS had a heartbeat of around 152 for the duration of pregnancy and DD's was 140 or below. ::)

My bump has been around 150 on both occasions the midwife has listened so far and my pregnancy is mimicking that of DS's so who know's the flavour, maybe another boy?! ;)
