I wonder if you have heard of this? At around 11-13 weeks, at the bottom end of baby you can notice a little bump. (see pic lol)The bit pointing out at the back of baby is the end of the urethra (pee tube) and apparently if it points straight down its a girl and if it is angled its a boy. It doesn't end up in its final place until 13 weeks so earlier than this might still be out. The split in the middle is known as the fork. Looking at my picture it would suggest that I am having a boy.
It was only that I read sarahkka's post on nub research that I looked into it and found that it is really interesting. They have a whole section devoted to it on another pregnancy website found here http://www.in-gender.com/cs/forums/95.aspx if anyones interested. I posted on there under the name sixlilpigs and so far the ladies have all come back with boy, have a look.
Uh-oh. What have we started?
The site I read had all these women calling themselves "nub-sessed"!
There might be a few of us straining to find nubs on our 12-week scan pics tonight!
I think there was an ultrasound technician running the site that I read, and she would use various sample scan pics to help teach everyone. I didn't have a chance to take a good look at the sight you posted here, but it seems similar. I seem to also recall something about the angle of the nub to the spine being relevant.
If I was even looking at the nub on my 12-week pics, it was right for me. My nub pointed up and I'm having a boy according to my 20-week scan.
i had a look on mine and its straight so might be girl? Will have to see at next scan.
Any chance of posting yours pic Danni, just to be nosey!
What they say about the angle is if it is parrallel and up to 30degrees to the spine then its a girl and anything over 30 degrees is a boy. There is still time for movement from 12-13 weeks so I think the ladies on the other site the 'nub-sessed' lol say if that at 12 weeks it is still straight down then highly girl or if it has started to move to a degree then they may conclude that it will continue to move and say boy. I'll see if I can borrow a clear boy and girl nub picture from them to show the difference.
They do have thread's on this page with clear boy and girl confirmed nubs. If you have a look through there are some clear ones. I have asked a lady if I can use her pic over here as it is very clear so hopefully if shes gives the ok I can borrow it. In the meantime have a look through and see what you think. http://www.in-gender.com/cs/forums/95.aspx
