Have I been doing nun theory wrong?

Just had our 12 scan today and they gave us their predicted sex of the baby according to the nub.
I've guessed quite a few right in the past and I would have thought the opposite sex to what they said. So, interested to see what everyone else guesses and wondering whether if being doing it wrong all this time.
(I do realise it's not an extract science and she did stress she wasn't 100 percent sure as it's too early)

NUB, not nun 🙄

I can never see the nub unhelpful

I'm surprised they said anything at 12 weeks. Mine wouldn't (although they were a bit mean so I was too scared to ask anything)

Nun theory is notoriously bad at producing babies (sorry couldn’t help it)

I only clicked on to see what on earth 'nun theory' was.

I'm no wiser with 'nub theory' tbh!

I'm not sure if I'm very good at this but I would guess girl from that photo.

BoofayTheOompaLoompaSlayer Tue 10-Apr-18 19:46:09

Wild guess, maybe girl?!
To be honest, not a scooby!

Cute lil nose though!!

I don't think I can edit the title to stop confusion! blush

I think a girl. What didn’t they guess at the clinic?

Dvg Tue 10-Apr-18 20:44:52

I thought girl at my 12 and 20 week scan but its a boy, looking at the picture it does look like a boy but with a girl nub XD

Dvg Tue 10-Apr-18 20:45:40

I'd say girl due to the look of the skull but it looks like a small ballsack down below...

twobambinos Tue 10-Apr-18 20:51:31

I would have guessed boy to this pic.
We had a scan at nearly 14 weeks and they said before the scan no way could they tell us what it was. 4 more weeks till we find out I am literally going to burst from excitement

I thought this was going to be a thread about a miraculous conception.

Too early for formed genitals but they said they thought boy based on nub but I thought the nub looked like a girl - what do I know!

Littlemisssugarplum88 Wed 11-Apr-18 07:56:35

I'd guess boy as the genitals are angling up but you won't know for definite until your 20 week scan. Keep us updated smile xx

PurpleGuppy Wed 11-Apr-18 17:09:36

I definitely must have misunderstood where the nub is then as it looks like it's straight/ pointing down to me confused

LaContessaDiPlump Wed 11-Apr-18 17:10:55

I wanted to know what nun theory was sad doesn't sound like the kind of thing you'd associate with pregnancy tbh....

MiniDoofa Wed 11-Apr-18 17:15:33

So disappointed - was very interested what nun theory could be!!
Good luck OPsmile

ScreamingValenta Wed 11-Apr-18 17:15:36

Another one who saw this in active conversations and was curious about nuns ... [shuffles off again]

KatnissK Wed 11-Apr-18 17:42:04

I would say girl but honestly it's a wild guess...please update and let us know when you find out for sure!

PurpleGuppy Wed 11-Apr-18 20:40:19

Will do! smile

MagicalCreatures Wed 11-Apr-18 22:17:29

Definitely a boy in my eyes!!! X x

RBM9 Wed 11-Apr-18 23:15:13

I think boy based on the 30 degree angle (which I’ve just been reading up on!) wink

PurpleGuppy Thu 12-Apr-18 07:33:01

I can't see anything pointing upwards though confused

I don't think you can see the nub properly in that picture.
