How accurate was nub theory for you?

I have a very obvious downwards pointing nub (it was practically glowing in the 12 week scan), which indicates a girl according to the theory. Did anyone have a very obvious indication and then it turned out to be the opposite at birth? I'm happy either way, just curious about the theory.

I have a very obvious 'Text book' girl nub at 12 week scan, and it has been confirmed a girl at 20 week scan. Check out Xx

I had a few people comment on mine saying it was a girl... 20 week scan and ITS A BOY! Maybe mine was not obvious though but I would take the theory with a pinch of salt.

With DC2, there was a classic girl nub that showed up perfectly on the scan pic. Lo and behold, 30 weeks later, a little girl arrived...

Thanks ladies. Mine is a textbook girl nub so I'm convinced it's a girl. We wanted a surprise but I had stupidly slready discovered the nub theory on here before our scan and never expected to see such a clear one, so I feel a bit like I've spoiled it for myself, even though we will never truly know until b-day.
