Fetal heart rate 160 bpm boy or girl?

You might have heard that we can predict gender of the baby if the fetal heart rate (FHR) of the baby is above a certain number. It’s a myth that has been propagated by various resources and it’s not entirely true. If the heart rate is above 160 BPM then it might be either boy or girl as there is no scientific evidence to prove that above a certain heart rate is girl and below a certain heart rate is boy!

So in your case, if the fetal heart is 160 BPM, you won’t be able to predict the gender. Recent research suggests there is no absolute difference by which we can identify a male fetus or female fetus depending upon a Baby’s Fetal Heart rate (FHR) in BPM (Beats per minute).

But the same study also suggests there will be only minor difference between male fetus and female fetus in terms of heart beat. Researchers wereable to find only a find only a baseline difference of 0.9 beats/min between the male and female fetuses.

If anyone says that one can tell a gender of baby by it’s heart beat above a certain level then say to them it’s a purely myth as there is no concrete scientific research papers that proves that!
