    I have a private midwife looking after me. I went for a check up during the week and she listened to the baby's heartbeat. We had a chat about it and then she told me that they have a theory that if it's a boy, the heart rate is between 120 - 140. A girl has a much faster heart beat between 140 - 160. Wonder if anyone else knows anything about this?
    I'm happy to keep on guessing. Only want to know when the final push is over!!! :lol:

    that is what my family doctor who is a friend of the family said so maybe it is true then - if so it means that i am having a girl :)

    They hadn't heard about the heartbeat thing over here in oz and when i had my 20 week scan babies heartbeat was 150 and i said i bet you it's a girl, the sonographer immediately moved to babies legs to have a look and guess what yeap it's a girl :) at my last couple of checks the heartbeat has been 140, apparently the heartbeat fluctuates between 120and 160 throughout pregnancy depending on babies movements
