I think 120-160 is normal.
You can't possibly tell the gender from the heart rate!

It's an old wives tale about girls having a slower heart rate than boys. Similar to morning sickness means a girl and none means a boy, never had a day of sickness with dd lost a stone in weight and was signed off for 6 weeks with ds smile

My Dd's was always around 160 and above. When my midwife heard it she asked me what I thought I was having and I told her I was sure its a girl and she replied, "well the hb certainly sounds like a girl's". We were both right.

Ds's was always around 140-150. But I wouldn't have known this if I hadn't bought a Doppler and measured it at home. Where we live midwives no longer measure the heart rate, they just listen to see the heart is still beating and that's it.

I had a midwife tell me my baby had a boy's heart rate. Everyone said my bump looked like I was having a boy. I was convinced my baby was a boy. Obviously I had a girl!

DS always had a higher heart rate than DD did. Although I had a midwife tell me she was sure DD would be a boy due to heart rate.

DD was heavier than DS - mice have very fast heart rates I think - isn't it to do with size (boys generally heavier than girls?)
