    Default Heart rate and gender; Myth?

    lower heart rate for boys, higher for girls?

    Anyone care to share their experiences?

    DD consistently had a lower heart rate than DS. I'm not convinced. Lol. If only Old Wives Tales were true!

    My son's heartrate was 149 at 6+2 weeks, then throughout my pregnancy it was 155-170. So it wasn't true for him.

    Pregnant with boy/girl twins and the heart rates are pretty much the same as each other every time we look. So would appear to be myth.

    When they do the Doppler thing they tell me "it certainly beats like a boy." All I know is the first heart beat I heard was 141 which I was told indicated boy. Pretty sure the girls were 160/180 or something.
