Over time many various baby gender predictor tests have been used to determine the sex of the baby. It was believed in the past that the sex of the child can be determined according to the fetal heart rate.

With the advancement of technology, this method is not used anymore and is highly questionable. It was thought that a heart rate below 140 beats per minute means you were expecting a boy and above 140 beats per minute means you were expecting a girl. Maybe it might be that there is a tendency towards this but really and truly is just boils down to chance, as there is not scientific evidence to back it up. Science has given us the possibility to determine the sex of the baby on the 9th week of pregnancy through a blood or urine DNA test or after the 16th week through a routine ultrasound procedure.
