    Default Heartbeat rate at scans vs gender

    Hi all,

    Does anyone believe a higher heart rate at 12 weeks means girl and a lower one means boy? We're so desperate for a boy (because we have a gorgeous daughter already) but this ones hb rate was high (166) similar to what my daughters was at the same scan.

    Can anyone share their experiences? Was this relevant to your pregnancy? Or did this old wives tale prove incorrect?

    Love to hear what you think,

    Ash x

    I had 2 boys around 140 and my girl was 150 plus at each scan, so I guess the theory was right for me. Good luck !

    Hi there

    It was the opposite for me.
    Both my boys were high (158&160) at 13 weeks and my little girl was low (140).

    High heart rate for me at 12 weeks. And I'm having a girl.

    Honestly, it's got 50/50 chance of being right, right? Pretty good odds!!
