    I think it’s too unclear or soon to tell. You hae to visualize the spine to tell.

    i consider myself a nub enthusiast! haha im 16w saturday and dying ot know what im having.. but that arrow does not seem to be pointing to anything nub like… the nub is pretty obvious if you google nub theory there’s a good website that shows the difference.



    that’s a google image that kind of explains it but you can see the obvious nubs. also, before 12 weeks its very inaccurate, at 12 weeks its only 75%, but after 13 its about 95% accurate.


    I voted that isn’t even the nub cause that very big “nubish” looking thing is the leg, and the arrow seems to be pointing to a very tiny tiny tiny little light blob which is def not the nub!

    I’m sorry! I hope my information is helpful but I don’t see a nub. i didnt’ get one at my ultrasound at 12 weeks either!

    @BearyLovely:  I’m sorry but I’m about 95% sure that is still not the nub either!! the nub is more like where that BIG blob is JUST to the left of your circle.. but that is not the nub in your case that is most definitely a leg, but when you do have a nub, its right where that blob is, to get the nub shot basically the ultrasound tech has to move the wand in a way that you don’t see the legs… so it looks like a legless baby with this little blob or nub that makes you go OH is that my boys stuff!! lol.

    I jump on every thread with a nub to try to help everyone but i just  do not see one here ! i dont really get why people are voting boy or girl cause i just. im a freak about this theory i wanted ot know my gender so bad!!!! haha ugh i have an ultrasound a week from today ill be just about 17weeks but its not my anatomy scan, but im still hoping i can get a gender reading. ill be far enough!! good luck!!!

    @BearyLovely:  The newest 3 pics look like they are “face on” pics and not profile. You can only tell the nub theory from profile shots. Also, the original pics you posted, the large area that sticks out to the left is definitely a leg and not a nub, and you would be looking for a nub around that area where as your arrow/circle are more where the umbilical cord would be found. Looks like your little one is keep this secret a little longer!

    OP is the top photo a profile photo or a front view? (in the new pics you posted) and also how far along were you in them!?

    ETA: after looking at the top one of the new pics I thought I was maybe seeing a nub but im fairly certain it is not. I’m sorry :[ maybe some other bees will have better advice!
