Im just curious to see how accurrate old wives tales really are! They say over 140 is a girl and under 140 is a boy. What is/was your babies fetal heart beat and gender??

Hi all, I am a Sonographer (I do your ultrasound).
A normal BPM for around 20 weeks is anywhere between 120-180. Babies are like us, when awake their rate is faster and while asleep slower. As the pregnancy progresses its slows down.
As for ALL the old wives tales, the ONLY predictor of sex is if it has a penis its a boy, and if it has labia its a girl!!! So the ring test, food aversions,carrying high/low/wide etc etc, is just a load of hogwash.

Mine at 10 weeks was 161 and at 12 weeks on up til now, which is 21 weeks have been 145 to 152 and I am having a boy. So I don't think that wives tale is true.

My daughters and the baby that Im carrying's fetal heart rate were both on average 169 and the one Im carrying is boy. so I have had one of each both with the same heartrate.

I don't think it really matters. My daughters was around 156-146 because towards end of pregnancy it slows down a little, but both my nephews were in the 160's and 150's so I say no to the wives tale.

Sorry to burst your bubble Serina, but my twin BOYS both had an FHR of 150-165 thru my entire pregnancy, labor and delivery. Your wives tale is completely off.

My daughters was usually around 150 bpm and my son was usually around 120 bpm. So I guess it was true for me :)
