Baseline Heartrate

Good Morning,
My wife went in for nst(non stress test) at 37 weeks.The baseline heartrate was 152bpm with spikes up as high as 192bpm. We dont know what the sex is yet but all I know is with our last boy during the nst the hb hardly reached the 140's. I'm thinking girlbut would like to hear other comments.
          thank you,     Sincerely curious&nervous husband

Sorry, hun, but it's an old wives' tale.  It's even been scientifically tested.  I hope you get exactly what you want, a lovely, healthy child.
