Hello all

I'd welcome any thoughts on whether I'm having a little boy or girl! Here's a pic from 12w 5days. How reliable are nub predictions? It's my first and I've no clue!

They're about 50/50 . . .

I used in gender website and 100% of those who expressed an opinion on my 11 week 3 day scan were right (confirmed at 20 and 32 week scans). Imo your scan pic looks a bit boy like.

Looks like my scan pic and I am now 20weeks and they said boy all the way along!

Looks similar to my friends scan picture and she had a boy. I saw the nub on my scan, the way it was pointing indicated a girl and I had a girl. Saying that, it's not always accurate and I think it depends on the stage of your pregnancy.

Thanks all! Here is another pic. I wish I had the gift of patience!

I wasn't even sure if the nub could be seen in my scan. but I uploaded it to - as there is a forum for people to guess about your scan and thought it was useful that they also had a big gallery of images and even a couple of quizzes so you can start to see the difference between the 'angle of the dangle' in different scans. Of course it's all just a bit of fun to speculate. Still 1 week to go till my scan and I'm getting more impatient by the second now!

Ah thank you will give that a try. What did they predict for you?

i can never see the nub but by skull theory id say boy...skull theory was right for me! but then 50/50 chance so who knows!?

Interesting..what is the skull theory?
