misshappy88 Thu 09-Feb-17 18:40:58

Aw wow congrats smile so you defo think mines a girl

mumxof3x Thu 09-Feb-17 19:41:42

I'd say it is likely going by the nub your having a girl. But there are sometimes factors that come into it such as exact gestation when you had the scan, and sometimes other things are not captured such as any shadowing on the nub which can mean boy, but from what I see it is a girl nub smile

misshappy88 Thu 09-Feb-17 19:44:01

Thankyou yeh one person said girl with my little boy so I'm dubious like x

mumxof3x Thu 09-Feb-17 19:53:14

My third little boy looked like a girl by the nub but I since found out that both sexes start off looking girly but then the boy nub will rise and change as time thats why gestation is important. It gets more reliable the further on.

I'm twelve weeks 4 days xxxx

annlee3817 Thu 09-Feb-17 22:29:32

Amy87 - I'd say boy, looks like stacking at the end of the nub

Sorry auto correct didn't mean to get your name wrong

misshappy88 Fri 10-Feb-17 15:30:35

A girl just said to me that the nub on this picture is far to long ? And laughed saying it wasn't one :/

mumxof3x Fri 10-Feb-17 15:57:22

In my opinion if is a nub, post this picture on a forum called in-gender, those will tell you for sure. It is longer than the norm that you see, but it could have just been imaged like this on the picture. In my experience of seeing cords on scan they look like a bobbly wiggly line. Not straight and forked, that looks exactly like a nub just a tad on the long side.

The midwife said the placenta is facing the other way maybe that's why ?
