176 beats per minute.

So I know there's an old wives tale that if your baby has a heartbeat of over 140 then you are going to have a girl, but I can't say I am believer. My friend Sheena is pregnant with a boy and guess what at her first ultrasound his heart beat was 198. It has slowed down to a 155 but still it's over 140. I also went back thorough Conner's (my son) book and saw his heartbeat ranged from 128-160. So to my knowledge my baby's heartbeat of 176 is no indication that I am carrying a girl. I did look up the ways to tell if you are having a boy or girl and while the majority pointed toward a boy some also said girl too. So who knows what I am having. The doctor ( my new high risk one, who is really nice) said that maybe we will be able to see what the baby is at my next visit (Oct. 29th) but I am trying to not get too excited, but it's really hard. Oh I guess I forgot to tell you about my last visit, it went well. Dr. Tipton said that the baby is right on target with everything and my due date according to the ultrasound is May 7th, right around Mother's Day cool I know. So now let's play a game did anything help you determine the sex of your baby? If so what? Or what did people tell you that wasn't accurate? Just wondering.

I always wanted to be surprised, I didn't want to know what I was having...I decorated the nursery in yellow...

Okay, don't think I'm weird but I didn't know about this chart when I was pregnant. I was too depressed to be pregnant and alone at 19 to want to know anything lol, that's another story. After I got over myself, I found this site (years later) and calculated my son, my niece, my nephew and even me and my sisters, I was at least 80 percent accurate. Give it a try. The link is below. Not saying I believe in this (after claiming to believe in God and all) but it's spooky!

All I know is, if it looks like you're carrying a basketball under your shirt, you're probably having a girl. I've NEVER been wrong when I've guessed someone. I swear it. Well, I think I do. lol If I ever WAS wrong, I've blocked it out by now. ha,ha
