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 know...it'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.
