Asked on a previous thread but everyone ignored me
It is seen on xray from 11 to 13 wks in genital region, depending on angulation it can be used to determine the sex. Hope this helps.
I concur... based on the 'nub' theory, our scan tech told us he thought we'd have a girl at 13wks (as it was more angled instead of straight up and down)... and, he was right! Got confirmation yesterday
So is a nub an actual physical thing we're looking for or is it just terminology? X
I don't know the "technical" term- I think it's called the 'Genital Tuber'? But there is a tube that both boys and girls have early on (around 10-13wks or so as the genitals develop) and that is what we refer to as the "nub"- least that is my understanding based on what my scan tech told me at 13wks. lol.
As the baby develops over the next several weeks, the 'nub' forms into the male or female genitals.
Hope that helps
