For all my blog readers who have children (or know children well enough to have known their fetal heart rate), what are their sexes and what, approximately, were their fetal heart rates?
I had a dream two nights ago that I was having an ultrasound and found out that I'm having a boy. I woke up, looked at my belly, and said "Hi Andrew!" I even called Drew at work and told him "We're having a boy!" I have strange dreams, but sometimes they come eerily close to predictions. Ask me about the Civil War soldier sometime.
Anyway, now, because of an old wives' tale, I'm questioning myself. I told my co-worker about my dream and she asked what my baby's heart rate is. Wondering where she was going with this, I told her that it's been in the 160 range. She said "That's a little high for a boy." I didn't know what she was talking about, so she told me that boys generally have lower heart rates than girls. Her two boys had heart rates in the 130 range, her girl was in the 160 range. We asked another pregnant woman, and she couldn't remember the exact rate, but she said it was really high, and she's having a girl.
Doggone the fact that I can't find out for another month and a half. Doggone it, I say. Oh, and another question. Has anyone ever found out the sex, but not told anyone? I'm considering doing that.
Also, doggone 6:20. I don't want to be awake this early. I want to be having dreams about my baby growing up to discover the cure for cancer.
