  • A baby's heartbeat can range usually anywhere from 120-160 during your pregnancy. It can fluctuate constantly. The time that they can predict what the sex of the baby is in only when you are in labor and hooked up to the monitor to track the baby's heart rate. It is at this time that the lower numbers (under 140) are usually a boy, and the higher (over 140) are usually a girl.

  • Sounds about right. Ours was 140 this week (32 weeks); we've been told two versions of an "old wives' tale": One says 140=boy and the other says 140=girl. Guess we'll have to wait until the birth!!

  • I'm 32 weeks' and 5 days' pregnant with b/g twins; as of today, the girl was 143 beats per minute and the boy was 130. The doctor said both were in the normal range.

Can you feel the babys heartbeat while pregnant?

You cannot feel the actual heartbeat of the baby, but you can feel movements of the baby and LISTEN to the heartbeat. If you can actually 'feel' a heartbeat, chances are it is your own and is just easier to feel on your stomach than usual because it is stretched to accomodate the growing baby. Your baby could also be having hiccups in the womb which is what you could be feeling- my son had them frequently and it would seem like a heartbeat but it's only hiccups (their hearts beat almost twice as fast as our own so you can easily distinguish hiccups from heartbeat)
