    Hey ladies

    I've just got back from the hospital after having a bit of bleeding this morning - everything is fine thank god!

    I got to hear my baby's heartbeat - how amazing, sounded like a little horse galloping.

    Anyway, the heart rate was 150 and after a spot of googling, an old wives tale is a heart rate above 140 is a sign that it's a girl, anything below 140 and its a boy.

    Just wondered whether there was anything in this at all - any ladies out there who can confirm or deny the theory for me?

    Xx

    Thier HR changes as they get bigger but it was actually correct for me

    Our early scans saw HR being super fast, then it gradually slowed down and settled around 120- 140bpm.

    Also I had a trace at 38w and spent an hour seeing how many times bub's HB went above 140bpm [we were team yellow] and it was mainly below 140 for the whole trace...

    Mine does actually follow suit. Between 140 and 150 and am having a girl. A midwife I had not seen before the other day said old wives tail is if it sounds like train its a boy and if its a horse galloping girl so she guessed girl and it is. My oh replied 'sounds like a blocked drain trying to drain in my opinion!' haha xx

    The train/galloping horse thing was true for my sister in law, she had twins, a boy and a girl and each of them sounded like their respective wives tale :)
