Yeah and that whole "you're carrying high it's a girl is a myth"! Sorry, but after a few babies you're not going to be carrying high any more. And what if you are carrying boy/girl twins? Carry high? Carry low? It's all bunkum. I've had 11 kids and they have had heart rates all over the map.

Only an ultrasound or just waiting til the baby gets here will tell you for sure, But, Girls heart rates are higher than boys. Of course, my grandma always said, if a baby is carried high and narrow it was a boy or low and wide was a girl. Mothers intuition is usually right, what are you thinking? Congrats! Babies are a true blessing!!!

At 20 weeks you are ready for "the" ultrasound. The one that precisely determines baby's age and your MD can accurately tell you boy or girl. This is an important ultrasound so don't miss your appointment. Prior to 20 weeks determination of gender is difficult. Heart rate is not an accurate indicator.

Throughout my pregnancies (before ultrasound) I always prayed for healthy, happy babies with all of their working parts intact and working fabulously! Far more important to me than the sex of the child.
Whatever the sex, ask for the highest intelligence working through the highest heart energy you have for yourself to rear this miracle appropriately!!!!
the highest and best to you and yours!

I always take thae age I got pregnant and month, as February being 2 and at those numbers up. If they are even its a boy. If odd its a girl. Seems to work for lots. All mine were correct. Usually high rate is a girl from what a nurse told me. I have 2 girls and a Boy.

Heart rate in means to gender is a myth. I've had two boys, both had fetal heart rates in the 150-170's. Have a 3-d ultrasound. My doctor was able to determine gender at 17 weeks with both of my boys with a regular external ultrasound. Otherwise it sounds like you are having a baby.

Not everyone experiences morning sickness and not with every pregnancy either regardless of gender. My sister had twin girls, girl and boy and they were all minimal sickness. I had two boys. With the first one, I had one wave of nausea a day at lunch time and that was it. With my second one none-bring on the spicy food...the spicier the better. With both pregnancies I lost my taste for my favorite foods.

You know Tania, I remember medically the explanation I got was that some women will be better suited to handle the overload of estrogen. especially when they are having a girl. Most women will be sicker with a girl because they are dealing with the extra estrogen on account of her growing her little girl parts. But it doesn't mean everyone. Its just exciting guessing. Please make sure you let us know what your baby is!

Sorry Amandaa this has nothing to do with your question but I just wanted to mention again about nausea. I remember something that has to do with hormones. I have two boys and a girl. With my girl I was sick more. Again to each person his own experience and only test will shows the gender. Good luck for you and i hope you will have a healthy baby. Please make sure you let us know about the gender.

Everyone takes these questions so seriously! I'm sure she's just asking out of excitement-it's just fun to guess sometimes! I'd saaaayyyyy..boy! ;) A girl has to have a little fun with these things, as there are many un-fun parts of pregnancy. :/. My daughter's heart rate was high and I'd say I carried her higher up than with my son, who I carried low. His heart rate was lower. Just sayin' :)

I guess they're all myths! I don't buy the nausea thing, either. I had no morning sickness at all with my 1st girl and it increased with each pregnancy (I had girl, girl, boy).
I will say, even though I don't find out from the doctor, with each one I took an online quiz based on old wives tales just for fun. It was right with all three. When I took it with the first two, I would try to answer the questions different to make it say boy (just curious as to how it decided) and I never could get it to say boy. But then with my third pregnancy it said boy!
I personally LOVE the surprise of finding out what they are when they're born, so I say wait it out another 20 or so weeks and have fun guessing in the meantime!

I would say a boy because of the old wives tail of carrying it in front high. People even told me from the back you couldn't tell I was pregnant. Plus, the low heart rate is another clue. Low rate is boy and high rate is girl. My mom made blue blankets, My Grandma knitted white and light blue hats and jackets. They were all so cute. Now, I had the baby. A beautiful and perfect baby girl. So, if you really wanna know, ask the doctor the next time you go. My girl fooled everyone but has been the love of my life. Good luck to you! But either boy or girl it will be the love of ur life. May God Bless you and your little miracle. I wish you all the best!

Since all women are different and not all pregnancies are the same I would hope that whatever you have boy or girl comes out healthy and no complications. With my kids the heart rates were good and both my kids were born 9 pounds I have one of each and I must tell even though I only have two both pregnancies were quite similar but no one is the same

I had heart palpitations during my pregnancies. The doctor told me that I might be dehydrated. I found out that everything they tell you is a myth. The only thing that has scientific evidance I heard was the nausea. With girls you tend to have more nausea than with boys.

I've carried high and low with girls, but I did notice that the heart rate was much lower for my son. I don't find out the gender until they're born, I like the surprise! But I remember asking about the heart rate because I was worried about it being so low, much lower than my other two and they always told me it was normal.

The heart rate thing worked on me lower rate boy, so I will say boy but when your pregnant what sex the baby is seems so important, I really wanted a girl and had a boy. Would I go back 19 years and swap no never. Enjoy your baby life will be different, tough at times but there will be moments of incredible joy.

The heart rate was considered "lower" in both my pregnancies and according to the old wive's tale I should have had boys - had girls. Ultrasound is just a really educated guess unless you have a 3D ultrasound and they get a really clear picture. I had a friend who was told at all of her ultrasounds that she was having twin boys - she had girls.
Basically your best bet is to wait for your ultrasound and take that as your best guess but get all your baby stuff in colours that either a boy or a girl can wear :)

If I remember correctly, heart rate for girls are suppose to be higher than boys. I would suspect a boy just simply by the rate. But there are so many factors involved, that Dove is right. The only thing for certain is that you are carrying a baby ;P But your ultrasound should be in the next month or so, and you can find out the sex then.

Sounds like a baby.
To find out gender you can get an ultrasound (not 100% reliable), an amnio, or wait til birth.
How you carry and what the heart rate is doesn't mean much since every woman and every pregnancy is different.
Congratulations though! ♥

Could be either. The only sure way to know is to wait until it's born. You could have an amnio and thats accurate as well.
I carried all 3 of mine the same and 2 boys and 1 girl. The way you carry doesn't mean anything.
