    Default Gender prediction by heart rate??

    So ive heard a lot of people talking about the old wives tale for gender prediction based on the baby's heart rate. I cannt remember DS' s heart rate. However this one has been between 155 and 170. Ive read that if the heart rate is below 140 its more likely to be a boy... and above 140 for a girl.... what do you all think about this? And was it true for you!

    I don't really 'believe' in the old wives tales, but middy guessed girl based on heart rate and belly babe is a girl.

    Both my girls were always around 150-160bpm and my boy was always around 135-145bpm
    So I believe it based on my experiences

    All my pregnancies have been around 160bpm, two sons so far and a belly bub that we will hopefully find out the sex next scan.
