Few weeks until the 20 week scan.
(This was my 12 week scan. )
Im getting pretty anxious about finding out the sex as have two of the same sex already and have dreamt of the other for so long. ... anyone in the same boat?

I've tried to work out dates to determine what sex it's likely to be and to be honest have no ide on the nub theory either
Any one fancy guessing or is the scan image too early to tell.

There's no nub on the pic sorry! And the skull isn't that clear for ST. you can get a private gender scan for about £40 from 16 weeks

Is This is a bit better as it's out the card case?

I'd be more inclined to sway towards girl based on skull theory, but no nub sunshine!

I'd say girl hun. Just pray all is well. Xx

Thanks for guessing folks.
Obviously a healthy baby is paramount. That's our priority but aside from being anxious about that I'm anxious to find out the sex.

What makes you say girl ? I honestly have no idea how you can tell from scans?

The skull theory says that boys have a sharper curvature from eye socket to forehead and that girls have a softer curve. If you Google gender skull theory you can see different examples smile how far gone are you? X

I'm 18 weeks. Almost 19.

There's no nub so can't tell I'm afraid.

SpwJd Sat 13-May-17 20:06:09

Oh. That's the only scan photo I have so I guess guessing the nub theory is out the question.

Any other guesses based on the skull theory ? grin

My recommendation is pay the £80 or whatever it is for a sex scan.

You could have one done on Monday and put you out of your misery.

Just get it over with.

Yeah you can have a gender scan from 16 weeks smile and if you're in a main city you'll find one for £40, that's how much I paid!

I'm just going to have to be patient but thought I'd see if anyone had any ideas. 😬
