Skull theory guesses?? no visible nub?

The affectionately named "honeymoon trimester". Your belly is getting bigger and you start to feel your first baby kicks. Are you having a boy or a girl?

Skull theory guesses?? no visible nub?

Postby shellsbellsxx » Mon Aug 25, 2014 7:25 am

I'm useless at gender guesses and i have my 20 week scan in a few weeks and we were going to find out, now we're talking team yellow again.... i think it will be decided on the day in all honesty!

Anyway... decided i will post my twins pics, and i have no nubs visible (at least not on one, maybe on the other? - not sure what i see lol)

13+4 weeks

Baby B (possible nub?):

Ooh that's a tough one Shells. There is data behind the nub theory but the skull theory was created by some lady on a forum for fun and has no merit so I never really paid attention to it.

I wish I could see nubs on these little ones but I suppose without a nub it makes it even more mysterious lol. I love the idea of team green but I am so ready to know what this baby is and shop for him or her. I give credit to you mamas who have the patience to wait it out lol.

If it had been just one baby i wouldn't have found out and DH has settled down enough now to consider not knowing lol Things we have bought have all been bright primary colours or creams and brown anyway so really no need to know.... but i have a feeling curiosity will get us on the day and we will come out of there knowing what we're cooking lol x

You will just have to keep thinking about how awesome it will be to hear what the babies are when they are born. It will be amazing regardless but even more special with the extra news. Everyone will be so excited to know!

i believe baby a is always the one closest to cervix. at least that's what they told me when they were measuring mine at the beginning.

not great with skull guesses.... but I'll guess the same as robye
baby a = boy
baby b = girl

cant wait to see if yall find out!!!!! good luck!!

Yep that's how it works. Baby A is the one that would be first to come out ;) you learn where they are and it's more obvious the bigger they get :) lol I know where each of my little girls are at all times lol. And I'm just gonna say 2 boys cause that's all we don't have in our twins board lol blind guess yup that's how I roll :)

Thanks for the guesses ladies :D

As the ladies have explained 'A' is nearest the exit (that's how they explained it to me and it made me chuckle lol) B is on top - the likely hood of that changing is slim, so they should stay that way until delivery.

I also think A is a boy and B is a girl... so does DH! Dh really wants some pink as he has 2 older DS already and would love a daughter.

If we do decide to stay team yellow i will update when they arrive :)

We are having.....

We both were convinced there was one pink in there so both had an 'oh no pink' moment for a split second, but we're over the moon with our prefect, very bouncy, baby boys! Serious business of trying to find names now lol Both measuring perfect with no concerns for either of them which we are very grateful for!

Very funny moment when we were watching them after all the measurements were done, They are both head to the right and legs to the left and we were sat watching them kick each other! :dohh: Fighting already! lol So cute to see them waving and rubbing their eyes, we got very few pictures, but i have a scan every 4 weeks now so next will be 13th October :) x

I don't have many - only the ones in the pic i posted plus one more each, the other two of them that are very similar. I have have one other but it's only a pic of the top of there heads lying side my side. They are VERY tight with pictures here on the NHS even though we contribute £5 each scan if we want pictures x

They are going to be so cute together when they are born. I bet they will talk to each other in gibberish and sleep all snuggled up lol.

Can't wait to meet them!!
