Gender Prediction: Heart Rate


As the old wives' tale goes, if the baby's heart rate is over 140 the baby is a girl, but if it is under 140 the baby is a boy. Pshhhh.

Bennett's heart rate was never under 140. Most of the time it was in the 160's, so I do not believe this fable one little bit. Fool me once, shame on you...

But, to stay true to our little experiment here, I'll pretend that I believe it. After all, it is what the tale says. All this to say that this baby's heart rate has been in the 170-160 range for the 3 times that I have heard it. Which gives this point to the girl tally!

So, at the end of week 4, with 3 weeks to go, the score is:

BOY: 3

  1. Both my boys had slow heart rates. I am hoping to hear a fast one this time. Love your posts!
