What you have marked with arrows is both bits I use to nub guess with The main white line is the main measuring point, if theres stuff going on above this then I guess boy stacking and if theres nothing above then the nub is laying down flat alongside that white line so a girl guess The boy stacking can often not be caught on camera or only give a little glimpse so boys can often be missed. I've attached a link below thats worth a look
3boys: that's very reassuring to hear. I know it's a slim chance (10%), but it's still unnerving. I too have read about autism being more prevalent in girls than first thought, but I don't think it's more prevalent than boys. I think it's just this irrational fear that because our son is autistic and our daughter isn't that another son would be too and a daughter wouldn't. Totally nuts and not grounded in fact, it's just quite worrying.
6lilpigs: thanks for that. I guess time will tell in a few weeks I would be delighted with another little boy (aside from the higher fear I would have). I have a gut feeling it's a girl, but I've always been wrong, so I imagine it's certainly a boy then
I was wondering if this might be the nub as it looks like it has the forked ending to it and that the line above is something else... it's all so fuzzy. I wish this scan had provided better quality photos (obviously photos was not the priority of this scan and we were delighted the baby is looking healthy so far!).
Well, we had a gender scan today at 16 weeks and my gut feeling, for once, was correct and the baby is a girl! I got her to double check, but there definitely wasn't anything between the legs. Will wait till 20 week scan to believe it properly, but for now, we're going with girl.
