Scan picture, can I already see a penis?!

It looks like there is a penis already visible on my 12 week scan, can anyone else see it too?

I'm not expert but I'd say that's part of babys' leg.

PilkoPumpPants Tue 08-Nov-16 18:05:42

No*

GizmoFrisby Tue 08-Nov-16 18:05:49

It's a nub

Jodie1982 Tue 08-Nov-16 18:07:37

No looks like a part of the leg.
Congratulations smile

I see what you mean but I think that's the umbilical cord... my 12 week scan had a similar 'penis' ... and I had a girl

Sunflower30 Tue 08-Nov-16 18:09:22

Ah ok, I got a bit carried away with myself I think!

That would be a mahoosive foetal penis grin, seriously that's probably a leg/part foot.

sweetchilli77 Tue 08-Nov-16 18:28:57

why are my scans never this clear.....mine are awful

chatnanny Tue 08-Nov-16 18:31:54

Using the nub theory I'd say a girl...

GizmoFrisby Tue 08-Nov-16 18:37:38

Agree with pp a girl too using nub theory

Chemistria Tue 08-Nov-16 18:38:57

That's the nub, the bit which forms genitals. Also agree it looks like a girl nub

The sonographer said it was a new machine sweet, I had a look at my scan from 2 years ago and that was not nearly as clear.
Thanks everyone, I've really enjoyed reading your predictions!

It's quite clear for a scan but at 12 weeks it looks like a genital nub and to be honest as far as I can see it could be boy or girl.

Looks like a boy nub to me

DrSeuss Wed 09-Nov-16 19:44:16

Not sure. But a giant dick just got elected if you want a point of comparison.

Chosenbyyou Wed 09-Nov-16 19:51:42

Lol doctor!
That is a lovely scan pic OP nice and clear on the face, I think girl tbh - congratulations xx

Nikki2ol6 Wed 09-Nov-16 19:54:17

There is a group on Facebook called strictly nub theory and you can upload your pic there and have loads of people tell you what they think. I put mine on and everyone said boy. Everyone was right

BenLinusatemyhomework Wed 09-Nov-16 19:57:05

Genital nub and I would hazard a guess on girl.

Sunflower30 Wed 09-Nov-16 20:21:19

Thanks everyone, I'm still undecided! I felt sure it was a boy, I'll be happy either way smile
I'll have a look at that nikki thanks.

Barefootcontessa84 Thu 10-Nov-16 09:11:02

I would say girl nub too

blessedmummyov5 Thu 10-Nov-16 09:39:19

That's the nub and going by it I'd say girl x

Sunflower30 Thu 10-Nov-16 16:43:42

I'm very intrigued, I was considering having a surprise this time but I'm not sure if I can wait now!

Chemistria Fri 11-Nov-16 11:10:21

sunflower i also agree the strictly nub theory group are fab, there are other groups too but the nub theory is very accurate (but not 100% obviously so if you want a surprise there's also that element of doubt!. I posted my 12 w scan up, got 37 girl guesses, 3 boys, I'm having a girl .

Also posted a really poor quality image of my son 3 years ago, i ddin't have a clue what I was looking for back then but everyone guessed boy. x

Sunflower30 Fri 11-Nov-16 12:14:58

Thanks for the recommendation! I've posted on there. I used a different pic to see if it gets different opinions, so far 2 are saying girl and no votes for a boy. I'm still not convinced but it would be lovely!
