I was speaking to an obstetrician the other day about the heartbeat wives tale, (I’m a training midwife and so many ladies ask me if its a boy or girl based on the heartbeat).
Anyway long and short of it was that there is evidence that boys have a slightly higher heartrate than girls but its that minimial that the heartbeat would have to be monitored throughout the whole pregnancy continusly to get a decision.
Just thought you might find that interesting. I know I did.

Anyway congratulations on your little pink bundle x
