Question about heatbeat at 8 weeks

just had my first appointment and we got a reading of 186 for the fetal heart rate at 8 weeks. Is that high? Also, is there an old myth about the heart rate and tell if the baby is a boy or girl?

    The heart rate is on the higher end but that is ok, congrats!

    The old wives tale is 110 to low 130s range, the thought is that it's more likely a boy, and if it's in the mid 140s to 160 range it is more likely to be a girl. For me this old wives tale was never correct and my kids heart beats fluctuated a lot during pregnancy.

      don't stress out about it its normal that ur baby's heartbeat is high its because there bodies are working alot to go threw all the stages so in the end u will have an amazing baby boy or girl ....the sex u will know til ur about 15 or 15 weeks...congratulations
