These are the pictures I got from my 12-week scan, where the baby was measuring 12+2 weeks.
Any guesses on gender based on the nub or skull? It's not a great nub-shot unfortunately. I was thinking girl as it looks more like my daughter's nub shot than my son's (and the skull shape is similar), but who knows. Will find out in a few weeks.
I am relatively inexperienced with this stuff. I remember looking a lot at nun shots when I was pregnant with my daughter, but not since.
Just to check. Is this the nub?
Or this faint shadow? I didn't think this was part of it as it isn't attached at the base, there's a gap between baby's torso and whatever that shadow is.
I was trying to look during scan, but it all went so quick. The head shape was pretty rounded in the scan - a lot more like the second pic than the first. Is that a boy or girl thing? I can't remember! During the scan the sonographer also swept over potty shot area as he was checking bladder and legs; I know at this stage they look so similar, but it looked like a hamburger shot between the legs, rather than sticking out, but I'm sure they all look like that at this stage!
I am happy to be having a baby full stop as this has been a huge slog for us, but I would prefer a girl for the reason that my son is autistic and I am very scared of having another autistic child. It's more prevalent in boys and I would feel a bit more anxiety if I knew it was another boy. I will of course get over it in time and will love this baby no matter what happens as much as I love my son and daughter. It would just make life a bit harder to have another autistic child. Of course though, we knew the possibility was there before we started TTC two years ago, so we are prepared for anything.
I'm having a gender scan in just over 2 weeks at 16 weeks, so will confirm then. Thanks in the mean time for guesses
