On my dd i kept a note of babs heartbeat it was always above 140 even when she was asleep. I had read somewhere that you can tell sex of baby by heartbeat if its under 140 its a boy and above 140 its a girl. My friend was preg exact same time as me and her babs heartbeat was always below 130 and she had a boy. So just wondering if any of you had noticed this on your last baby and if it worked out to the above theory, i am going to keep a note this time to see if im right .

I've read that too! Don't know if it's right though.

Sorry I'm another one to blow that theory away. I was told at my 17 week scan it was definately a girl. However a doctor told me a few weeks ago it was a boy and have had loads of scans since and sonographer told me def a boy even showed us his little boy bits so no mistake. I've been on the monitor all week and always his heartbeat is ranging from 145-160. Very rarely goes under and if it does its only for a few secs.

I asked my doctor about it and she said it's an old wives' tale
