    If this was an US done during the 12-14 week time frame, I’d say BOY. I was NUBSESSED for about 6 weeks with our baby’s US pictures!

    i am also very NUBsessed and i have to say i dont really think i can tell by this picture…. the nub ishhh looking thing above that cross on the left almost looks like part of babys leg… it looks very big compared to the nubs ive seen in ultrasounds. ulso when was this taken? the nub theory is only about 75% accurate at 12 weeks and way less before that. its mmore like 95% accurate after 13 weeks.

    IF that is the nub above the cross, my only guess would be girl. however what needs to be known about girl nubs is they are considered horizontal, a horizontal nub can still move to vertical, but a vertical nub (a boy nub) can never go back to horizontal. so if you catch a very obvious vertical nub, its pretty safe to say its a boy.. a girl nub is so hard because there is still potential for it to change. I really would not get your hopes up with this poll if you have a strong gender prefrence because i would hate to see you get disappointed!


    Let us know when you find out for sure!!!

    @MrsHowarts:  How far along were you when this US was taken?  It looks to be about 9-10 weeks?  Whatever the case, I think it looks too early to tell.  And I don’t see a nub, if anything, the thing above the cross on the left looks to be a leg.  Post another one when you are further along!

    I was in to the nub theory and guessed I was having a boy based on mine- I delivered a BOY less than 2 weeks ago. Mine was a little clearer shot than yours but my vote is boy based on the very slight upward angle. 

    Oh and my baby’s nub was HUGE.. I thought at times maybe it was a leg and that I was carrying a girl but my instinct reassured me that it was a boy. Hard to say, but http://www.ingender.com is an amazing website. Lots of pros and even some ultrasound techs that will guess for you.
