Hi Sagar,

Welcome to HCM.
First of all hearty congratulations for being pregnant. Your sonogram report is showing that your child in the womb is perfectly alright and growing well.
As for fetal heart rate, it has absolutely nothing to do with sex of the baby, so what you heard is absolutely wrong.
Wish you safe delivery and a very healthy cute baby.
