Just wondered if anyone is good at guessing the sex from an early scan based on the nub or skull theory. This photo is from our 13 week scan. Don't mind either way - just impatient to find out! Please have a guess!

I'd guess girl. looks like a girl nub inline with the spine and the skull looks female.

Difficult though with the skull, mine was girly nub and boy skull and I am having a girl

The nub isn't a theory; it is early developing genital organs and was first explained to me by a fetal med consultant who was right at 12w. The skull thing has no basis in fact. Just sayin. Although I'm not having a guess as I'm not qualified!

I am useless at the nub theory but by the skull I would say boy! My sons skull looked pretty similar!

Thanks for the guesses! I hadn't realised the nub thing was actually proven, so thanks sonoma. It was definitely correct with my DD 3 years ago so am interested to see what this one turns out to be. If what I think is the nub is indeed the nub, I think it looks like a girl too.

Anyone else fancy having a guess?
