The Heart Rate

The baby's heart rate at the appointment yesterday was 155.

Are you a believer in the old wives' tale about heart rates??

I was thinking that it was 150 and above, but everything I looked up today says 140 and above is girl, below is boy.

However, I also read that there was a study done that said the difference they could find between male and female heart rates was only during labor. At that point I'm not going to be thinking about gender, just getting to the finish line!

OK, all these tests are just driving me crazy! Mostly because they all say you're having a girl! Honestly, if you have a girl, there will be no stopping my desire for another baby. Not that I wouldn't love another boy. That would be great. But I think it would be nice to have a girl. And if you have one, I'll believe in the possibility of it! I can't wait to see if all these things are right!

Actually, Billy was supposed to be a girl. We had to check into the hospital the night before the scheduled c-section and every nurse and doctor that listened to the heart rate was positive. I guess you never really know....
