Question Fetal Heartbeats

Hello All ~

I think this was brought up by someone else in another thread awhile back, but I couldn't find it, so I thought I'd ask again.... anyone know if there is any truth to a fast heartbeat tending to be "girl" and a slower heartbeat tends to be a "boy"???? I'm 17 weeks, and my doctor counted my baby's heartbeat to be around 156 my last visit. Is that considered high??? Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Angie

Re: Fetal Heartbeats

I am having a boy and the first few times we saw the heartbeat, it was around 170. Now it's steady at 150-155.

Re: Fetal Heartbeats

I am having a girl and her heartbeat has been usually from 145-149 and I am 30 weeks now. I dont believe those wives tales as every one of them said boy and yet I am having a girl..lol

Re: Fetal Heartbeats

Of course it is not true. There is nothing out there saying if you babies heartbeat is this, then it is a girl and if your babies heartbeat is this then it will be a boy.

My babies heartbeat has been in the 160's once, but her's is usually in the 150's.

Re: Fetal Heartbeats

Normal is 110-180.

We're having a girl and she has been high 150's-160's.

I don't think there is any truth to that wives tale at all.

Re: Fetal Heartbeats

I'm having a boy and his heartbeat as been between 140 and 150. Unless the lil bogger is moving around than his heartbeat is up in the 170s. I tell ya that boy can move. And none the less that all comes from dh's side of the family. But it really isn't true for everyone. A friend of mine her girls had high heartbeats and her son had a low one, but I think it truly depends on the person. I have done some reading up on it, and they say it all depends on the person, when they take the heart beat and what the baby is doing.

Re: Fetal Heartbeats

Anywhere between 130-170 is considered normal, I believe is what I heard
