    its very accurate while your in labour, the time leading up to birth. its scientifically proven then. anytime before then its just another old wives tale im afraid

    I'm staying team yellow but heartbeat was 145bpm at 25 week check and sounded like a galloping horse. Midwife said old Wives Tale is below 140 is a boy and above is a girl, but then she said she thought it was a load of old cobblers and it never normally worked like that!!! lol Will have to wait til April....

    I wouldn't think there is any truth behind this, bpm changes and depends on other things like time of day, age, health etc etc
