Heart Rate Question

Postby MommaR » Mon Jan 06, 2014 6:13 am

Is there a way for me to post a video on here? See, because I'm wondering about gender I've been keeping track of the heart rate obviously. This time I had to ask the doctor.. she didn't just tell me. She said 148. However, I video taped it so the fam could see it. Then I posted on Facebook and everyone noted that there were at least 39 beats in 15 seconds.... which is 156 in a minute. It's on video...

So why would the doctor say 148? I'm pretty confused by this.

I think the docs doppler/u/s tells average beats per min, so perhaps there were less beats leading up to the 15secs you recorded? I'm only thinking this as my home doppler has different settings for getting bpm and they do make quite a difference in the reading.
As for gender from hb, my baby's hb has always been between 150 - 165 and am expecting a boy. My friend, while pregnant was told by several u/s techs to expect a boy as fetal heart rate was always around 120 bpm, it was a boy.... So I'm not really sure how accurate it is but it's always fun guessing :)

Ahh yes so that's not really accurate either. lol

It didn't look like hers told her the number but it totally possible. She was looking down holding the machine and I was recording. I've just never had to ask before - the doctor has always just told me.

Thanks!

Its not accurate sadly. Couple of my boys had pretty high hrs, and this baby, which is a girl, is between 145 and 155 always. I have 11 kiddos, this will be 12, and it was accurate maybe half the time. But, it is still fun to wonder and obssess :)

Just wanted to say that our little girl had a HR today at 150, and it is definitely a girl :) Her HR started in the 120's, went up the 160's, and now has come back down a bit. I have heard that anything over 140 is a girl, and it has been right with all 3 of our kiddos. It was also right with all 3 of my sisters kids and she swears by it. So my vote would be girl right now - although I would wait until the next one to make a really good guess!
