    Hi girls just wondering how true this theory is?

    For those of you who know what your having do you knownthe beats per minute of your baby's heartbeat?

    ive read this is only even vaguely accurate close to birth time so is not reliable during the rest of preg

    We are team yellow and mine was 145 today. Midwife says the traditional tale is over 140 is a girl and under is boy, but in her experience it never really works!!! Also heard about the whole galloping horses (girl) vs train sound (boy) and mine was definitely more horse like today. I love all these guessing games!!!!

    I got told by a midwife the only way this is true is after the birth apparently the girls is higher when they're born. I was monitored two weeks before and over an hour period his went from between 130-170!
