Nub Theory...

To be believed or not?

The nub on my most recent scan I believe is VERY clear and it's got me wondering smile

I may be a complete wally though & it might not be the nub at all!!

Any experience of the nub theory from you please?

I'm interested too! What do you believe your having and when do you find out? I find out in 3 weeks... Any ideas based on my scan?! I'm desperate to hear some success stories but a lot of people on here havnt updated their threads after the original post!

Well it was right with my dd and a private gender scan has confirmed it with this one but it's not due for a while yet so can't be 100% sure smile

I had a feeling right from looking at our lil bean at 9wks he was a boy....and he is :D x

I don't think I'll bother this time sad

Correct for us (girl).

Firstpregnancy2014 Sat 31-May-14 09:59:36

On my photo that I've uploaded I think the nub tilts up slightly ? But only slightly so would this be a boy or a girl?! I spend ages lookig at it!

miracle0812 Sat 31-May-14 10:05:37

If it's slightly then girl if it's straight up then boy.
Worked on my girls and my friends scans too x

Firstpregnancy2014 Sat 31-May-14 10:25:50

So cause mines slighty on the attached photo according to the theory more likely to be a girl?

Fissawissa Sat 31-May-14 14:29:32

It was right for us too - we are expecting a boy.

VJONES1985 Sat 31-May-14 15:59:38

I'm 28w now and we know what we're having. Here's my 12w scan pic - anyone wanna guess and see if they're right?? :-)

GingerRodgers Sat 31-May-14 17:08:16

VJones is it a boy?

VJONES1985 Sat 31-May-14 17:11:22

It is!

GingerRodgers Sat 31-May-14 17:28:28

Yay! Congrats!

At our nt scan we were told boy and shown some very male looking bits. I've been looning at the nub but still not sure. First pregnancy I think that looks girly.
Here's dcs scan pic if anyone wants to guess.

miracle0812 Sat 31-May-14 22:29:22

Yes first pregnancy according to theory it is slight tip.. Girl I can't see anyone's pics hmm
There is also the skull theory! When my friends post 12 week scan photos on fb I always guess what I think from skull shape as they say girls are more rounded and boys masculine I am 24 in a row guessed right!!! Never looked at nub theory till I was looking at my 2 daughters old scans and realised how clear it was!
Awaiting to find out 3 baby's sex of friends hopefully I can carry on the trend and get to 27! Feel free to show me your pics but tell me how I see them first lol!
I only ever say if I'm 100% sure sometimes if scan isn't clear or in a strange face on position I can't tell

Following this with interest!

ImBrian Sat 31-May-14 23:05:03

Miracle mines at the top of my post. I'll stick it in my profile as well

Firstpregnancy2014 Sat 31-May-14 23:41:36

Miracle mine is on my post too! Dying to know your opinion! smile

Following with interest too! I've been wondering since our scan, I'll attach a picture if anyone wants to guess?!
Which part is the nub? I thought the longer white line was part of the leg and the line underneath was the nub? But I have no clue smile

ImBrian Sun 01-Jun-14 07:45:25

Strawbs I'm not sure it looks flat and is forked which is girl but it lookalike it's coming out the top if that makes sense which I think is more boy.

ImBrian Sun 01-Jun-14 07:46:32

The nubs the white bit (I think).

First I still think yours is a girl smile
