I have absolutely no idea what I’m looking for. Anyone fancy guessing the sex?

Yep boy.

FairfaxAikman Fri 06-Oct-17 17:29:53

Ha ha. No worries Tattoo. Nice to know someone is sure.
Can o ask why you are certain (as I said I have no idea what to look for)

Well this is what I'm looking at anyway, and I would say it was definitely pointing up! smile

I’m going to say girl. I there are 3 lines?

FairfaxAikman Fri 06-Oct-17 18:48:29

Pretty unanimous so far

bettydraper31 Fri 06-Oct-17 18:53:12

Based on the nub theory I'd say boy as it's pointing up x

Roxx1516 Fri 06-Oct-17 19:38:46

I think boy for sure x

FairfaxAikman Sat 07-Oct-17 06:33:43

Can anyone tell me why they are so sure it’s a boy?

Oysterbabe Sat 07-Oct-17 07:48:10

The nub is angled up and there is stacking.

Boy nub

FairfaxAikman Sat 07-Oct-17 08:29:33

What’s stacking Oyster?

Oysterbabe Sat 07-Oct-17 08:46:15

Stacking is the extra line at the end of the nub on top. It's the developing penis.

Fairfax, don't hang too much hope/despair on nub theory. People said one of my girls was a boy (she had a girly angle, but what looked like stacking). While there are studies that support nub theory, it usually requires a perfect scan picture and they are not terribly common.

I'm not sure I see stacking here, could be a fork. Most nub theory subscribers don't think a fork tells you anything.

If you're desperate to know, book a private 16 week scan.

Btw, I said boy because the nub is angled upwards compared to the spine. In theory, girls' nubs are more parallel with the spine. Ultimately, it is just a guess though.

It’s just a bit of fun Melvin. I’m not really bothered either way

MelvinThePenguin Sat 07-Oct-17 09:12:21

Okay, good 😊.

I wasn't sure and I've seen some of these go a bit awry!

millie1991 Sat 07-Oct-17 11:50:15

I think yours is a boy smile can anybody guess mine please I have 3 boys already

MelvinThePenguin Sat 07-Oct-17 11:52:57

I can't see a clear nub on your picture millie. It could well be the leg!
