Brief Answer: no guess work feasible with bpm Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXXXX Welcome to healthcare Magic! BPM is the rate of heart beat. Heart of the fetus during intrauterine life beat quite fast and is not affected by sex so you can not guess the sex by this. There are some tests but all these are punishable offence in India because people started misusing them for selective pregnancy. I think you are just curious, so enjoy the waiting and guessing. Best attitude is to be neutral on the sex of the baby. It is the nature that selects the sex by choosing x or y chromosome and the probability is 50/50. I hope the advise would be informative and useful for you. Take Care!
