Answer: Hello dear. The heartbeat is normal if between 110 to 160.No, the heart rate cannot predict the sex of your baby. There are lots of old wives' tales surrounding pregnancy. You may have heard that your baby's heart rate can predict their sex as early as the first trimester. If it's over 140 bpm, you're having a baby girl. The truth is, your baby’s heart will likely start beating sometime around week 6 of your pregnancy. You can even see and measure this flicker of light on an ultrasound. The beats per minute (bpm) start at a slow 90 to 110 bpm and increase daily. They continue to increase until they peak around week 9, between 140 and 170 bpm for boys and girls alike. The average heart rate for baby boys in the first trimester was 154.9 bpm (plus or minus 22.8 bpm) and for baby girls it was 151.7 bpm (plus or minus 22.7 bpm). In other words, this myth is busted. There was not a significant difference between male and female heart rates during early pregnancy. Hope it helps.
