Nub theory?

Can anyone see a nub on my scan? Did me today at 13 weeks and 1 day smile

I have 5 other children and the nub theory was right for them all grin

Whoops would help if I posted a pic grin

OP your full name is visible on your scan photo x

furandchandeliers Thu 26-Jul-18 11:41:12

I don't mind I've got nothing to hide

I think I can see it and I think girl, but I'm no expert. My baba's nub is really borderline, so I really can't tell!

Thanks crabby patty smile

I think maybe boy, I can see what I think they call ‘stacking’.

furandchandeliers Thu 26-Jul-18 14:25:14

What's stacking @TheCag ? Sounds interesting!

Here a picture from google, it’s two small lines (the start of penis and testicles forming I assume). I’m not an expert, just been reading online to try and guess for my own scan!

furandchandeliers Thu 26-Jul-18 15:02:39

Oh I see what you mean! Yes it does look like that on mine too grinexciting!

HopeNovember2017 Thu 26-Jul-18 16:48:02

I'd say boy! smile

HopeNovember2017 Thu 26-Jul-18 16:52:57

Can I jump on the wagon? I love a bit of nubbing! wink This was 12 weeks - I'm thinking girl? smile

BifsWif Thu 26-Jul-18 17:41:15

Both scan pictures - girls

Yakadee Thu 26-Jul-18 20:16:18

Can I jump on too please? I'm totally hopeless at this! Not even sure my baby has a nub on this lol x

HopeNovember2017 Thu 26-Jul-18 21:23:55

Girl!

Yakadee Thu 26-Jul-18 21:26:35

Thanks @HopeNovember2017 - what makes you say girl (Sorry if it's obvious I've never done the nub thing before) x

HopeNovember2017 Thu 26-Jul-18 22:12:16

See the little white luminous line (just at the bottom of the belly) if that is parallel to the spine then they say it's a girl, if it's more than 30 degree angle (if it was pointing more upwards) then they say boy! So if the theory is right then I'd say a girl smile xx

Ah OK. That's really interesting, thanks x

HopeNovember2017 Sun 29-Jul-18 18:37:29

I would say from that pic a girl smile

Hi everyone,
New to this game and I'm curious about the nub theory...in truth I don't even know if I'm looking at the right part haha!
Any suggestions or thoughts for fun?
Thank you,
Xx

This was my 12 week scan, little girl. Not sure if it's helpful with looking at the nub!
