    Nub and skull theory guesses

    Hello, would love some guesses on my scan pic mainly just for fun! The gestation was put at 13 weeks though I think I was more like 12 weeks + 4 days going by my dates. What do you think? Can you see a nub or do you think itís hidden behind the babyís leg? Iím trying to work out whether the first pic shows the nub or if itís the bone of the babyís leg. During the scan I thought I saw a nub which looked kind of boyish but it was from a distance and couldnít really see if it was properly or the babyís position. The tech didnít print that particular screen shot. Iím desperate for a girl, I have two gorgeous boys. I came away from the scan thinking itís likely another boy but Iíve since been looking at these pics thinking maybe they look more like a girl. I do think the babyís skull looks a bit rounder and the chin is daintier than the ultrasound pics of my boys. Thereís probably a cheeky boy nub hiding behind the leg...Thanks! x

    The problem with these shots is that the nub is not captured. The technician focused on the outer side of the baby and not the nub. The place where the nub would be is totally black in the top two and in the bottom one is obscured by some structure (too big for leg, I'm honestly not sure what that is, may be placenta or part of your body). They're also blurry, meaning the baby was in motion, making skull guesses really very unreliable (and they're unreliable to begin with.) and also rendering nubs unreliable even if there was one (my point being you can't go off anythign you saw since the baby was moving!)

    I will say that one thing that was glaringly obviously different between my boys and my girl was that she had a much smaller chin and this was dramatically different, but I wouldn't take that to the bank of course.

    Good luck, sorry I can't be of more help.

    Thanks for replying! I wasnít sure if I could see the nub in the first pic (where thereís a sort of white blob near the babyís bum) but I think it is probably the outside of the baby. The baby was really active during the scan as you can tell from the blurred photo. The printer must have been running out of ink or something too so the print outs arenít very clear.

    If the baby was moving all around during the scan it's unlikely that anything you could have seen during the scan was going to be accurate anyway.

    That blob on the first picture is probably PART of the nub, but we can't tell the angle of it without the REST of the nub. So it is not helpful to our purposes and in fact would be totally misleading were we try to guess on it.

    It wouldn't have mattered about the ink anyway. The technician did not capture the nub on the screen. They can focus the wand in to various depths and they simply did not take a picture of the nub on any of these. Sorry, I wish I could be more help but there's just no way to know.

    Thanks again! Yep it’s definitely not a good nub shot! Oh well, gives me a bit longer to get my head around everything before the 20 week scan!

    Hello! We found out the sex of our baby the other day and the sonographer thinks we are having a little girl! I just wanted to say thank you so much for all your help Atomic. We are so happy!! It means so much to me to have a daughter. Obviously I’m now freaking out that they got have got it wrong. I had my eyes closed when she checked the sex and the answer was written in an envelope so I have no idea what the area looked like. I actually thought I’d seen boy bits earlier during the scan so had convinced myself it was a boy! My husband did have his eyes open and says he didn’t see anything protruding but there was a ‘bulge’. My sway was not a very good one but my diet was completely different to when I conceived my boys and I think the fact it was a one time, unplanned, pull-out method baby while breastfeeding which was messing with my cycle might have swung it! There hasn’t been a girl on my husband’s side of the family for a long time so everyone is so pleased for a girl to be joining the family.

    Thanks again for answering all my questions and providing us with so much information! So glad I found this website and I’ll be forever grateful. I can’t wait to meet our baby girl! X

    Huge congrats!!! Diet and number of attempts actually IS a solid sway so I hope you fill out an "Add Your Sway" if you have the time. https://www.genderdreaming.com/forum...ur-girl-sway-/

    As for what you guys think you saw on the ultrasound, everyone expects girls to be smooth like Barbies but we ladies do have bits too! People often fear they're having a boy if they see ANYthing but girls have stuff that is visible, it's just different stuff, LOL.
