An ultrasound is going to be more accurate than a heartbeat rate. Heartbeat rate, while somewhat accurate, is not the best measure for the sex of your baby.

It is a fact that girls have faster heartbeats than boys do, just saying. An ultrasound is somewhat accurate, but nothing is 100% effective in determining the sex of a baby, except for childbirth! If you are 9 months, just be patient (I know that's easier said than done.) You'll find out soon enough :)

I agree, the heartbeat is an old wive's tale. The u/s is more accurate than the rate of the heartbeat

The heartbeat for gender determination is an old wives tail. Ultrasounds can be wrong, but is a better indicator of gender then the heartbeat. So you are most likely having a boy.
