May I join? Angle of the dangle :)

Postby bichonfrise » Fri Apr 11, 2014 10:43 pm

Ladies,

I am still a week away from my 2nd trimester but I have a clear 12 week NT scan today with the nub. I am guessing that it's a boy. DH secretly wants a girl I think though we are happy with a boy too.

Do you agree with my guessing?

I only recently started looking at nubs, but that definitely looks like a boy nub to me. In my poking about and researching, I've also learned that girl nubs can sometimes be deceptive, but when you get a clear boy nub like yours, it's more accurate. Of course, there's no real telling until the anatomy scan.

Congrats! Little boys are AWESOME!

I had no idea until 2 days ago that there isthis thing called angle of the dangle & nub theory haha.

I wonder how accurate it is....I guess I have to confirm with private gender scan. from my reading, it seems that is 85 % accurate at 12 weeks.

Thanks for the congrats lady. Happycianci, when is your next U/S?

My next one isn't until the end of May... the anatomy scan. We saw a girly nub on our 12-week ultrasound but I'm not assuming anything yet!

My guess is boy too.

We are having a boy, but I didn't have any scans except at 10 and 20 weeks so I don't have anything to compare it too...just my limited knowledge of the angle theory. :)

haha yeah, my boy seems to want us to know that he's a boy without doubt. Even the first anatomy scan, this is the first pic that the sonographer got for us. first shot...bam, even the sonographer giggled because my boy is so eager haha.
