Re: Heartbeat

According to heart rates it should be another girl. BUT if you're still under 12 weeks preggo, they say heart rates aren't AT ALL trustworthy (like they are the rest of the time, LOL). Since their heart rates can start out higher when they can first find it and lower with time - I would personally wait until closer to 16 or so weeks before making the heart rate judgement call. The two girls have always been right for me, my boy was supposed to be a girl by heart rates.

Re: Heartbeat

I think it's still too early to tell. I know with all mine the heart rates were high and all over the place the first few months then they settled down to where they were supposed to be midway....but I already knew what they were by then!

I'm so excited that you got to hear it finally!

I actually didn't get to hear it It was on the ultrasound machine, like a little graph looking thing.

Re: Heartbeat

I wouldn't trust the hb thing...I have 2 boys and they were on the opposite ends of the spectrum. My first was always 165-175 (sometimes higher) and my second was always 140-150 (sometimes lower).

Let me also say, I know it's just speculation but I wanted to throw that out there

My 3 girls have all always been 155 or 160. I would say girl. But you're hoping for a boy this time, right? Good luck!

Re: Heartbeat

Oh Heather, did you read what happened to me when I heard this baby's HB? All my other girls were high 160's most of the time. This baby was pumping a 143 and I was just positive it was a boy....NOPE...another girl. So IMPO, the heartbeat thing is crap...LOL If you do base it on the HB myth...You're having another girl. Wouldn't that be something...LOL
