Calling all "nub theorists" and enthusiasts! And of course anyone who wants to play along in our guessing game wink.gif

Here are our scan pics from 12 weeks 4 days for baby number two. We will definately be finding out at the next scan provided baby cooperates! No desire for one sex over the other but just very, very excited hehehehe.

SO, verdict? I have my hunch but interested to hear what you all think? biggrin.gif

Supposedly under 30 degrees is girl so I vote girl too.

Eta: looking at the top photo I'm not so sure. But I'm soooo not an expert!

I would have guessed boy. But the baby's back is very arched so its a bit tricky.

Thank you again to everyone who replied. We are having great fun playing this guessing game and I'm so intrigued to test this nub theory out tongue.gif

Just BUMPing this again to see if anyone else would like to have a crack. Will let you know when we get confirmation to see who was right!

Going against the grain and saying boy. All the girls I've seen have been very parallel and this is a bit too close to 30 degrees for me.

Based on the second pick I think it could go either way...it's not a typical boy nub but it could still rise a little. Were you measuring spot on with your dates?

This is an IVF baby TinyTeddys so the we are 100% sure of dates. Gestational Age at time of scan was 12 weeks 2 days but baby is measuring very big at 13 weeks 3 days.

If you were 12+2 I'd lean towards boy then. Good luck!!

I'd say boy - but it is a guess and nothing more original.gif

Good luck either way!

I thought boy straightaway based on angle and skull shape.

Try posting on these websites (but be warned... it's addictive)  biggrin.gif
