12 week scan, anyone with nub experience want to hazard a guess of girl or boy? I love this game.

I can't see the nub (I am poop) but I'd say boy from the skull!

Number3cometome what makes you say girl? X

Shape of the skull x

I think girls tend to have more of a straight forehead and boy a curve due to a lower brow ridge. But who knows?!

Girl smile

Snowyjane I thought boy x

What does everyone think to mine? I was thinking boy (for no reason) but after this is the nub and skull saying girl?!

I don't believe in the skull theory sad I had the 'square jaw and big head' still do and I'm a female.

But going on skull theory op I would say girl smile x

Miss twister I also think boy

Hang on - you can't see nub in that picture! Try again....

You seem very definite Number3! They said they could easily tell us at the 13week scan but we said no!

I've been wondering if that was because they could see ovaries - it was at fetal medical centre and so they were looking at all the organs so it's possible.

I'm no expert, but the skull looks girly and so does the nub (what I can see of it in the second picture)

Do you have a preference or will you be finding out?

I'm finding out next week! My baby is naughty and refused to open legs or turn around for me to see the skull or nub at my last scan!

MissTwister Fri 06-Feb-15 14:19:31

No preference really - and we're not finding out as my husband is really keen to have a surprise! I had the harmony test so they could have told me 100%!

SnowwyJane Fri 06-Feb-15 16:28:08

I have no idea id still say boy.
This is a picture of my DS' scan when he was 12 weeks so maybe you can see when I said boy

What's a nub? blush

MissTwister Fri 06-Feb-15 18:43:09

Google nub theory - I only learnt about it yesterday!

I have a feeling mine is a boy x
