Just a bit of fun grin find out my babys sex in 4 weeks time but just thought I would see if people could guess from my scan pictures from nub or skull theory?

MissOrganisedMe Wed 19-Oct-16 00:13:31

I have the vaguest ideas of what both of these are but haven't studied either in any great detail so my guess, ultimately, may have no basis in either but I'm going to go with GIRL grin Do you have any thoughts either way yourself?

Jemma1118 Wed 19-Oct-16 00:20:04

I also think girl, I have a little boy already and my pregnancy has been totally different this time. I will be happy either way though as long as its healthy smile

what was the heart rate?

Jemma1118 Wed 19-Oct-16 12:09:16

Im not sure, they didnt say at scan sorry.

I think girl because the forehead is very rounded smile

Girl babes and boy babes have different sounding hearts. Horses hooves galloping and full steam ahead trains apparently. Also girls' beat faster iirc.

I think she looks lovely! Congratulations.

Thank you smile

Remember and come back to update us all smile

I will do grin i have my gender scan booked for the 12th of november. So exciting!!

MissOrganisedMe Wed 19-Oct-16 18:06:56

Yep, it is! I had my 20 week scan today. We have decided to keep it a surprise but I doubt that the sonographer would have told us if we'd wanted to know anyway.

Jemma1118 Wed 19-Oct-16 18:39:02

I wish I could keep it a surprise but im too impatient! I wish I had your patience smile

MissOrganisedMe Wed 19-Oct-16 20:08:54

I was tempted but you don't get too many actual 'surprises' as an adult and I think I would regret knowing as soon as I knew iyswim. Plus, if I'm honest, a few people have told me that your labour is quicker if you don't know. Now whether that is and old wives tale or actually has some truth, I don't know but a quick labour has its attractions to me grin

Propertyquandry Wed 19-Oct-16 20:10:59

I think girl too smile

Nikki2ol6 Wed 19-Oct-16 20:28:27

That's a girl nub.... aslong as you are 12 and a half weeks ++++ as boy nubs can look like that until the middle of the 12th week. So the nub theory is not accurate before that

Jemma1118 Wed 19-Oct-16 20:35:39

Oh goodness I was in labour with ny first for 48 hours, hoping this time its quicker haha.Thanks! My scan was done when I was 13 weeks exactly.

MissOrganisedMe Wed 19-Oct-16 21:18:24

48 hours?! This is my first and that sounds like the stuff of nightmares sad I refuse to think about it until further down the line smile

MouseLove Wed 19-Oct-16 22:12:23

Missorganisedme I think it's lovely having a surprise. The only thing in life you can truly be surprised at. X

nennyrainbow Wed 19-Oct-16 22:16:48

I think girl based on the nub.

Jemma1118 Thu 03-Nov-16 20:39:35
