Fetal Heart Rate 150 Boy Or Girl
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.

Can fetal heart rate reach 170 -174 at 28 weeks? My obgyn on call said it can be very normal. The baby's heart rate is always at 150 though?
Is it normal for the fetal heart rate to slow down at night? I'm 11 weeks pregnant. Normally baby's heart rate is 150's last night it was 120's.
Babies tell us a lot: Monitoring a fetus by fetal hr, ultrasound or the expectant woman's perception of activity is important. No one test can tell us everything we need to know, but together they can tell us which babies might be better off delivered. If a baby is near term and the testing is worrisome then obstetric specialists or subspecialists might deliver. But conditions can change. Plus every case is different. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
<110, or >160 bpm.: After the first trimester, the fetal heart rate should fluctuate between 110-160 beats per minute. Arrhythmias (skipped beats, tachy-/brady-arrhythmias) account for most pre-labor abnormal heart rates. Intrapartum fetal heart rate depends on fetal oxygenation and placental perfusion and is used to prevent death of brain injury during labor. Decelerations may be early, variable or late. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
Head compression.: Typically, the fetal heart rate decreases episodically with contractions during the pushing stage of labor as the fetal head is compressed and rapidly descends in the birth canal. Head compression causes a parasympathetic neural discharge that slows the heart rate as long as the intracranial pressure continues. Other causes: cord compression, placental failure can also occur. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
