When I was in labour with my first the midwife thought boy as heartrate about 130 and she was correct!
2nd time round it was slightly higher but resting heart rate just under 140 and a boy again.
The heart rate was often higher in 2nd trimester but settled to the rate above in the 3rd

I'm 37 + 5 and my baby has had heart beats ranging from 122-142, 122-138 and well over the 140 mark! So if the tales are true, then my baby swaps between a boy and a girl!!! lol!
One thing I did notice from my notes is that when my BP is raised, the foetal HR is always lower (122-138) but when the BP is lower (normal) the HR is between 135 and 152.
I've been guessing the sex of my baby for months:
Nausea up to week 19 - no vomiting
loss of appetite - especially meat,
love sweet stuff - but then so does DH,
'small' baby - growth scan tomorrow,
all front - but that could be my body posture,
no linea nigra below the belly button but slight line above - I'm very fair skinned
Guess I'll have to wait and see!
