I have heard that fetal heart rate bear a relation with the gender of the baby. Less than 140 BPM indicates a boy and vice versa. How far is this true?

Not true.: All the indirect "signs" of fetal gender are old wive's tales; if you want to know your baby's sex, just get an ultrasound (or even blood test nowadays such as maternit21/harmony). There is no scientific proof that male fetuses have lower baseline heart-rate in comparison to females. Gender does not affect fetal heart rate variation. Oguch o, steer p.

Thyroid disorders.: The proper answer to your question is that typically the baseline fetal heart rate does not correlate with fetal growth. Rare scenarios where this general statement would not be accurate include severe maternal hypothyroidism or excessive intake of antithyroid medications in hyperthyroid women that subsequently affect the fetus and its growth curves.

At 33 weeks what should fetal heart rate be? I listened to my baby tonight as not feeling well, heart rate was 159-161. I am currently in Spain on hol

Normal: This is a normal heart rate. I am concerned about your not feeling well however. You may have simply over done it on the holiday so rest is a good idea. I can't say more because I don't know your exact symptoms. Are you monitoring kick counts? I often have patients lie down on their side for 30 min. At the same time every day and count fetal movements. If they decrease, you should report it. Read more
