So i just had my 15 week check up and the mid~wife guessed the babies sex by heart rate. How accurate is this?

so i cant get the ultra sound to determine the babies sex for 3 weeks they said, untill im 18 weeks but the mid wife says that judgeing just by the babys heart rate she would guess that its a girl! I am wondering if anyone has ever heard of a connection between heart rate and gender because i have not.. i hope she is wrong and its a boy but either way im happy there is a good strong steady heart beat and the baby is healthy! :)

There is no connection whatsoever. I have had 4 kids - 3 boys and a girl. Their heart rates while I was pregnant were: (boy) 160s, (boy) 170s, (boy) 140s, (girl) 150s). I asked with my first if they could guess by the heart rate and they said it would be as accurate as flipping a coin.
