Does anyone think the nub theory is true if so would anyone have a guess at what they think about gender

Yes the nub theory is true. And that's a baby boy

The nub theory is very accurate when at a correct gestation and a good clear image. Your scan shows a nub, which is a boy. Congratulations smile

My scan looked nothing like yours. The nub wasn't even visible which according to the nub theory indicates a high chance of a girl.

A boy we were told last week

Thing is with nub theory they can appear to look like a girl nub but then rise within a couple of days, that's why gestation is very important too, my ds3 had a girl looking nub at 12+1on the screen (wasn't captured for the scan picture). However, I'd be very shocked if this one turned out to be a girl as it has very apparent stacking.

Can anyone tell on mine please? 13w0 xxx

Toomuch, for yours I am going to say girl. For 13 weeks gestation, the nub in the first picture still seems long and in line to the spine. Cannot see any stacking; I'm more confident with my guess on OPs scan though.

I felt confident in my guess for a girl too, until a friend guessed boy completely at random and now I dont know haha. Either way the face shape is identical to my DD! Thanks for answering xxx
