Patrick taped the baby's heartbeat on his cell phone and forwarded it to mine . Wonder if I can post it somehow ? :unsure:
She/He heartbeat along with Kims is 170 beats a minute . The doctor said, what we hear is mainly baby .
So, mommies out there . Tell me boy or girl

I was always told that girls had a fasterheartbeat.
We tested it while i was in labour and it worked for both of mine.
Robyn was 160-170 beats and jack was 140-150.

It's either that or he's just more laid back

Whenever i see a programme on TV about births i try and guess from the heart rate too!

I can remember that when I was in labour, Patricks was between 152 and 158 . I'm excited regardless . If I have a sweet grandson, I'll just have to buy a Peter Pan outfit . LOL

LOL well at least we can narrow it down to a boy OR girl!!!!

That's cool Tinker. My friends all tried the heartbeat trick and one who already has 2 boys thought for sure it was a girl this time. Low and behold it's a boy with a fast heartbeat!! :lol:

I'm glad you were able to hear the baby's heartbeat, Sister Tinker. :yes:

Not sure if it's the case, but I've read that the smaller the "being" the more rapid the heartbeat. :unsure: I don't know if that applies to all living beings, or just certain ones. :unsure:

Thank You, Sister Tink .
I've did some research and in Europe, if heartbeat is higher than 160, 88 % of the time its a girl .
In the US , its a myth . It works sometimes . Depends on position of the baby and movement as we would yes .
Whats strange is I usually have a feeling . With Patrick, I knew from the day 1... that I was having a boy . I would LoVe to have a GD , but first and most important I pray that girl or boy, its healthy .
