Haha, me too!! Balls sound funny.

Thanks everyone. Yep, I reckon boy. Will be full on shocked if it's a girl.

I'm thinking boy too, for no other reason than I just get that boy feeling when I look at your picture

Also, lol, balls 😂

So, this is a dumb question, but on my ultrasound pic, which part exactly is the nub?

You can see balls on a 12 week scan?! I thought they could only give a chance of a guess but not be too sure as genitals are still developing?

Anyhow, I'm going to guess a girl just because you have 2 boys and every little girl needs a big brother (or 2) to look out for her and make sure her boyfriends past the dating test right? Can't wait for you to confirm for sure on what your little one is!!

Haha, well that was my question - CAN you see balls on a 12 week ultrasound? OH and I both thought we saw what looked like balls, but if you can't see balls on a 12 week ultrasound then I have no freaking clue what we thought we saw!

From this pic I posted, I can't see any nub actually sticking up anywhere. It's a bad angle, but I've been looking up the nub theory today and I've seen lots of girl pics that look somewhat like mine! I honestly have no idea from the pic I posted, but I clearly remember seeing DS1s sticking straight up completely obvious in his 12 week ultrasound. I didn't see anything like that with this baby (or with DS2 it has to be said, but I don't think the ultrasound tech even went over his crotch region during that ultrasound).

Honestly if not for both OH and I having a boy feeling and independently saying upon leaving the ultrasound that we thought we saw balls, then... I don't know!

Hmm, so the testicles are still inside the abdomen at 12 weeks and boys and girls basically look the same. That was my takeaway from reading that page.

I think I give up, if we're going by feelings, I still think it's a boy, but the more I look at my ultrasound pic, the more I just see an amorphous blob.

I had my 20 week anatomy scan today and wanted to come back and update this. We were all right - it's definitely a boy! Baby boy number 3, oh boy!
