16 week check up

According to the old wives tale about the baby’s heartbeat – so far we’re expecting another girl. Today the heartbeat was at 145-147. Anything above 140 (so they say) is a girl, and below is a boy.
I actually “feel” like this one’s a boy so I don’t really know what to think. That and my brother told me so. He’s never wrong. I guess we’ll just wait and see.

  1. Wow. I would have said that in the 140s was considered slower and therefore a boy. Abbi’s heartbeat and this one’s heartbeat have been in the high 150s to 160s. Only 4 more weeks and you’ll know for sure!!

  2. I just looked back in Levi’s records and he was always in the 140’s after 12 weeks (he was 156 at 12 weeks), until 30 weeks when he dipped down into the high 130’s and stayed there. Plus, it’s simply just your turn for a boy.

  3. I know – who knows though, right? We’ll just wait and see. Either way is fine with me – I think a boy would be a lot of fun but it doesn’t matter one bit who ends up being born.
