Am i right in thinking the sticky up thing is the nub? And nub theory wpuld suggest boy?

I think its if its a certain angle (ie point towards tummy) then it's boy, if it points down then girl? In your pic its pointing straight up so I wouldn't like to guess! I never knew about nub theory until after I had mine, but when I looked back at the scans they were all there and accurate according to the theory!

That is indeed a boy nub, the stacking which gives it the upwards angle. So I would say a boy :D

Thank you. Scan lady said she would put bets on it being a boy. Think dp would be over moon to have a boy after two girls!

I dont understand it all myself thoughsad

I didn't until I looked on in-gender site, have you put your scan on there? The ladies are really good with nub guesses. Until I looked on there I just assumed they both had kind of a line and girls were flat and boy was a line that pointed up, had no idea about the stacking etc. I put my scan on there this pregnancy I got a clean sweep of girl guesses from the nub, I found out at 16 weeks she is a girl (after 4 boys) so maybe give that site a go if you haven't already, pretty sure you will get boy guesses on there too. Congratulations smile

Thanks. Tried in gender and they all say boy! Exciting!

I would say boy as well but after I put mine on two different nub guessing forums and they all said girl and it is a boy! So I think you are better just to wait for your twenty week scan and see.

I got a little carried away with nub researching!! My 12 week scan shows a really clear 'not' nub with stacking and a slight angle up, quite similar to yours. 20 week scan said girl grin

That should say 'boy' nub!

Realise this post hasn't been active for a little while, but wondered if you guys could see a clear nub on our scan? I thought you could but I'm new to reading up about the nub theory so I could be wrong. Any views on boy or girl?

I always thought the nub was part of babies leg 😕

You may want to ask to have that removed. Has your name on it

Ooh mine was confirmed boy at 16 and 20 weeks.

No idea about yours, sorry

Can anyone guess my nub ?? 12+4 days.. I've got a 16week gender scan in a few weeks x

Hi not sure if I'm too late to comment on this, apparently I have stacking on my nub but I've also been told it's part of the leg imaged. I have researched stacked nubs and realised mine is on a downwards slope to the spine? Can someone help??
