I had an appt. today because of my cold. I had one last week and she couldn't find heartbeat enough for me to hear it or for her to get a good reading.

So, I finally got to hear it today!!! It was 146. Does that lean more toward boy or girl? I asked her about it and she said it was just about a 50% chance of either (lol)

We also got blood work back (FINALLY after a week!). My glucose test was good, which I was worried about because I'm overweight. The stuff testing for neural tube defects, Down's Syndrome, etc. were all negative. Good report!!!

When they persisted in questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, "Let the person among you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her." John 8:7

Yay for a great appointment !!!!!

I don't believe in the heartbeat theory....

At 12w6d the heartbeat was 176 (or 172) which indicates girl and at about 16 weeks it was 146 (or 142 can't remember) which is still a girl, but if you look on Baby BPM - Predict Baby Gender through Fetal Embryonic Heartrate it indicates a boy....

I doubt that my baby has changed genders.....

Aw! Congratulations! When we heard the heartbeat for the first time, I cried all day long, I was so happy/relieved/hormonal! That's the best sound ever!

I don't think it means boy or girl either way. They say over 140 is a girl. But both of my boys started out in the 170's and stayed between 140 and 150. Monday was 142 last week was 146
Congrats on getting to hear it at last. It's a great sound.
