Heart rate & gender

So I've always been told that baby's heart rate is faster if it is a girl (above 140) and slower if baby is a boy.  What do you think of that myth? Was it true for you in previous pregnancies?

It's always been true for me, which scares me because this peanut is always in the 160's and we really want a boy

Interesting that it has always been right for you!  I have a friend that said it was a lot higher earlier in pregnancy than it was later in pregnancy. Perhaps that's what's going on?  Trying to remain positive for ya! Ha!
