Is it true that you can tell what your having by how fast the baby's heartbeat is?

I've heard stories that the heartbeat is fast it's a girl and if it's slow it's a boy does anybody else think that's true.

Yes this is supposedly true. When you go in for your visit to the doctors they will sometimes tell you that when they are hearing the heartbeat for the first time. Mostly they are always right.

It's not a guarantee, but if the heart rate is 140bpm or above it's believed to be a girl and under 140 a boy.

Nope. I have a boy & a girl. With both of them, they had a "girl" heart rate until the start of the third trimester, when they dropped to a "boy" heart rate.

No, the baby's heart rate tends to be a bit higher earlier in pregnancy, then drops some toward the end.
