Answer: 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. Below 140 bpm, you’re carrying a boy.
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.
Still, you can find lots of forum topics across the web on this subject. Though many women swear heart rate clued them in, the overall results are mixed at best. Most women reported that this myth did not work. Some even shared that their boys actually had higher heart rates, while others shared that their girls had lower beats per minute.
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 this helps.

Question: My baby heart rate is 142 bpm whether its a baby boy or girl
Answer: Hi...I too have heard it that girls have higher heart rates (140-160), while boys tend to have lower ones (120-150)but not sure about it. As it can be myth also because it is not true in every case. One of my friend believed in it but after delivery the case was different. So, never believe in such things.
