I would wait until the second trimester to buy anything.



also my sons heart rate has been pretty steady in the 150s but they say 150 and lower is a boy



how exciting :)

It means you're having a baby. You can't tell the sex by the heart rate.

my son's heart rate stayed in the 160s for a while...and then varied anywhere between 130-170.



the wive's tale is not accurate. my son proved it wrong for me.
however...weird as it is...the chinese gender calendar has literally been right for EVERYone i know personally, including me.

8w is not a reliable time to use the old wives tale regarding the heartbeat IMO.



As far as buying things, I personally waited until at least the 2nd trimester but I wanted to make sure everything was OK before forking over a lot of money. I'm 15w now and have yet to buy anything BUT this is #3 and the only thing I REALLY need is the crib (and I may be able to borrow one from my sister if my niece is out of it in time)

Wait til 12wks when ur past 1st trimester with m/c rate really low at that point to buy stuff just a suggestion. heart rate is a myth thing. Lots of threads on that here look around. My girls' were always 150s. I'm at 13wks morrow w a hr of 170 at last appt.

I think that wives tale is bogus. My daughter was always in the 160s. This one is a boy and his heart rate was 170s at my first appt and now 160s also.

you can still buy bottle breast pump and crib even if you dont know the sex of the baby, js.
