    Another theory to keep us going lol. When you have your nuchal fold scan apparently higher measeurements without any other complication signs are meant to be boys. Now I don't know what the limits are but I thought it would be fun if we did our own mini study lol. If you have your nuchal fold measurement and you know the sex could I add it below and we'll see if theres any truth in it. If you don't know the guess then we'll see if we can have a guess!!

    Interesting!

    Here's mine for your little study!

    Mervs Mum. 13+5. NT. 1.9mm Female.

    According to my report, that measurement is BANG in the middle of the normal tolerance for the gestation.

    Sounds like a good theroy ..
    I didnt have a nuchal scan as they dont offer them routinely here , Only if they see a problem .
    With Layla they saw hers was too thick I think over the normal range by 1.2 mm ..
    Anyway she was a healthy Girl , If that helps with the theroy :) . xx .

    Thanks ladies, so already if the boys are bigger say 2.0+ then we have a bunch of ladies due above. Especially with Mervs mums little lady being the biggest but also the oldest allowing for a little bit of extra growth!. Hmmm, very interesting :rofl: MummyMadness next time get us some measurements you blue carrier you lol.

    I think like the nubs the nuchal fold shrinks back after a certain gestation, you could always ask the technician though if they've ever heard of it? They may know what the average boy/girl size is.

    You think the least my hospital where to do if they had a policy on not telling was at least to put all the information on the scan pic so we could all have guesses :hissy: They really did cover it from all angles didnt they:rofl:

    You're right 6lilpigs; after 13 + 6 they no longer do nuchal scans as the fluid is reabsorbed and the test unreliable.

    Sorry you can't find your measurements Dragonfly :( I have a copy in my notes of the letter the hospital sent to my GP which gives all the details of the scan; that's the only reason I know.
