Anyone see a NUB in these photos and understand the NUB theory?

I don't know anything about distinguishing nubs in ultrasounds, but I want to comment that your baby looks cute!

Aww, thanks!!  I have had a few ultrasound techs look at the photos and they have all said there is no visible nub in the photos (which is what I decided after much thought).

 

Thank you though :)

I've had lots of u/s in my pregnancies and never heard of the NUB theory. What is it?

Both genders have a NUB between 11w-14w and for boys is arches up just a bit and for a girl it typically runs parallel with the spine between the legs and looks sort of flat and boys looks a bit like a bulb or rounded at the tip.  the do both look like penises though.  At 10w1d we could tell our last little guy was a boy because his tiny little nub pointed up.  At 12w1d we could tell that DD 2y/o was a girl by the shape of her nub that looked like a penis :)

 

Just google gender nub theory, there are LOTS of examples.

I had never heard of this before seeing this thread so I googled it. Very neat! You will have to let us know what is determined at your anatomy scan  (If you are finding out sex then) ;)

Actually I will probably find out on Wednesday .. I'll be 14w6d at the scan and I'm hoping they will be able to tell or will at least give me a good shot to go on LOL

Oh, okay, I have heard of this. Hmmm, maybe I'll get lucky with my next u/s and have a nub. That'd be cool to find out sooner rather than later. I'm itching to buy some girly stuff.

I hope baby cooperates and you find out :)

I am curious- did you find out?? Was your ultrasound today?

She said it's *probably* a boy because the girl nub wouldn't stick out this much if it was a girl, but that it's hard to be sure in the 14th week if baby is a boy and there's not a visible scrotum/penis combo.  So who knows, probably boy, but maybe not.  I have another scan in 3 weeks and I'm sure we'll confirm boy :)

I had u/s done at 11w6d and the dr asked if I was goind to find out the sex, I said yes...she asked if I wanted her to take a peek to see if she could see anything.  she said her guess was a girl based on the angle and had another u/s down the following week and u/s tech also said girl.  I was surprised they'd even guess that early but I read up on the angle of the dangle theory and it seems to be pretty accurate so I guess that's how they can tell so early....of course it's not 100% at this point.

My ultrasound tech guessed boy at the 12 week nuchal screening this week.  We will see if she is right at the anatomy scan.

I've got the first of my high risk scans in Tuesday, I'll definitely be asking if they can see anything.
