    This isn't much help to you but from my experience DS1 has a heart rate that they said was very high for a boy, staying around 165 the whole pregnancy... with this pregnancy I have been told another boy DS2 - the heart rate has stayed low as in 125-140.
    My pregnancies have been very different from one another. With the first, I had nausea in the beginning but never actually got sick, with this one I got sick rather often. With the last I had problems passing out because of where the baby was sitting and my blood levels, with this one I had minor dizziness but nothing too bad. Last time I carried very high until delivery and with this LO I dropped around 34 weeks. Also with this one I hve develope some minor acid reflux which I never experienced with the first.
    They say this one is another boy and I 2 have had my doubts but I should know for sure in about 3 weeks...
    This probably didnt help you much but I want you to know that things can be very different but the gender outcome may be the same...
    If you are still doubting the u/s tech findings you could probably request to have another u/s done, however you may have to pay for it out of pocket.. Some other girls on the boards have done that and it doesn't seem too expensive but I guess it depends on where you live and whether you have a reg u/s or a 3/4D u/s done...
    Well good luck and lmk what you decide or find out!
