Just wondering if anyone could tell me if our ultrasound is giving anything away? Boy or Girl?

We regret not finding out now and keep trying to over analyze the picture haha!

Not the right angle to tell the sex.  You need the toilet seat shot - ie up between the legs.

You cant tell the sex at 12 weeks. Even if you had asked to know you would have to wait until 19 weeks so you havent missed anything

Actually for a 12 week shot the one you need is a profile shot similar to this. You can make an educated guess but there is never a guarantee it is correct. If you look up the nub theory you'll find it. I think there is a link to it in the gender guessing thread set up for just this kind of thing.

Unfortunately this photo does not show enough detail to make a nub guess sorry original.gif.

The nub theory at my 12 week scans has been correct for my two, I'm currently obsessing over baby #3 now..

If you have any other 12 week pics with baby lying on its back post them up and we'll see if a nub can be seen.

Here's some info about it - http://www.baby2see.com/gender/external_genitals.html

It was correct for me as well for both, but even so it still does not have a 100% success rate.
