I'm 16 weeks and 4 days along and just went to my dr. appt today...two more weeks of waiting until we find out the sex of the baby. The heart rate was a good solid 156, my mom who worked with a obgyn for many years said they used to predict the sex of the baby with the heart rate and it was almost always accurate (yes, i's an old wives' tale) girls tend to have faster heart rates than boys, that is a fact. What was your baby's heart rate and what did you end up having?

This is a total myth. My doctor literally laughed at me when I asked him about it. My daughter's was in the 150's and my sons is in the 160's. Definite wive's tale.
