Hi everyone, apologies if there is a recent thread about this but I couldn't see one! Does anyone want to upload a 12week scan pic so we can have a go guessing the gender based on the nub theory? Could be fun?!

Ok this is my 3yr old but it's the 20 weeks scan not the 12 week does that matter?

Anyone want to guess and then I'll say if you're right?

Oh sorry I googled and apparently nub theory isn't relevant at 20w as they have Genitalia by then not a nub. Sorry! He's a boy by the way

If it's the nub I'm looking at - I would say girl? But then again I seem to think every scan I see is a girl! blush

I'm 16 weeks today may find out this week smile x

No nub (unless I'm being stupid) but here's mine at 11+4 if anyone fancies a go at skull theory detection!

emmalouise I'm getting boy from yours... but am useless at these things smile Let us know when you find out!

Lorna24 Mon 20-Jul-15 18:18:24

Any ideas?

tinyme135 Mon 20-Jul-15 18:27:07

Anyone want to guess? I'm thinking boy.

tinyme135 Mon 20-Jul-15 18:28:05

lily I think boy and lorna I think girl

lilyb84 Mon 20-Jul-15 18:31:47

We thought boy as well, tiny smile

I'm seeing boy for yours too!

I like the odds of this game... grin

Lorna24 Mon 20-Jul-15 18:34:04

Emma, I think girl smile
Lily and tiny I think both boys smile
Let us no if were right or not. Xx

Anyone want to guess mine? First pic is 20w scan today, second one is 12w, DH didn't want to find out..

Lorna24 Mon 20-Jul-15 18:58:07

I want to say girl.. But I'm not sure smile

emmalouise90 Mon 20-Jul-15 20:21:40

Lilly and lorna I think girls and tiny I think boy smile will definitely let u no if I go on Friday smile xx

tinyme135 Mon 20-Jul-15 20:39:14

I'm thinking boy too. I'd be shocked if it's a girl due to there being a load of boys on both sides of the family haha.

emmalouise90 Mon 20-Jul-15 20:43:52

All of my family say boy but they said that with my DD who is 4 lol I would love a boy or a girl I'm just to impatient the not knowing kills me haha x

I thought the more it pointed straight up it was a boy and if it's at a 30 degree angle it's a girl? confused

teaandcake2016 Mon 20-Jul-15 21:36:23

This is so hard confused

So far I think: Emma - girl, Lily - girl, Lorna - haven't a clue!, tiny - boy, gardening - boy.

Will try and upload a picture of mine soon if anyone is able to take a look!

teaandcake2016 Mon 20-Jul-15 21:42:37

12+3.... Any ideas gratefully received!

Gardening, I think your 20wk scan looks like a girl. You can sort of see the 'hamburger' shape that the sonographers look for. smile

ItsNotAsPerfectAsItSeems Mon 20-Jul-15 21:51:34

Teaandcake, you can't get the angle from yours as that pic shows the baby with legs apart showing their wares to the world. You can see the baby's bum too. Even though head is side on, bottom half is twisted upwards.grin

emmalouise90 Mon 20-Jul-15 21:52:49

Teaandcake I say girl for yours I read that nub theory of the nub is straight it's a girl if the nub is bent up more than 30 degrees it's a boy? I'm no expert tho haha x
