    Default Babies heartbeat and gender.


    Has anyone had two or more bubs (not at the same time lol) and their heartbeat the same rate at each checkup (ie around 12 weeks and both been at around 169-173 bpm) but have gone on to have the opposite gender? I'm curious, we aren't finding out again but this bubs heart rate whilst a tiny bit higher is the same as our first born.

    Example
    first born at 12 + 3 was 169 bpm, 17 weeks was 150 bpm

    and this one at 12+2 was 173 bpm, 17+5 was 154 bpm.

    I know there is skull and nub theory but don't think my pics are clear enough so was curious about the old wives tale of heart rate.

    I get my 20 week scan next week and we aren't finding out,melts me get through labour but I'm definitely curious :-) I'm guessing same gender.

    I think this old wives tale is totally debunked and not a good indicator of sex. I find out next week though and so far this Bub has had a very similar hr to DS, so I'll let you know if it's true in my case, or not.

    Mine were sort of similar, second pregnancy had a higher heart rate than first, usually above 170. Also had much worse and longer lasting morning sickness with the second and an apparently girly nub. Both boys so not sure there is too much stock in it but you never know.

    There's an online predictor that you can plug your info into. It was correct for my daughter but this time it said boy at my dating scan but girl at my 12week scan.

    Thanks for the replies :-) I'm guessing we have another little man on the way. Doesn't matter either way but I was curious :-)image.jpg

    Both babies had similar hr at 7 and 12 weeks. First was a girl and this one is a boy. Everything about my pregnancies is almost identical.

    My two were always very similar right from the start, one girl, one boy. Even our 2 angel babies were similar (within a couple of bpm) at dating scans so the theory didn't apply for us

    That's interesting, thank you for your replies. I appreciate it.
    I guess you never know till bub comes out or get a gender scan done, I'm way more curious this time though.

    Thought I would reply - turns out Bub is a girl, so both she and DS had hbs of 160-170 and different sexes.
