Please try to convince your U/S tech to get a nub shot . I think it will be so fun to compare and guess genders and then see if we are right!! My scan is tomorrow and my perinatologist is doing the u/s so I'm pretty sure I'll be able to convince him. He'll probably give me a gender guess himself!

I won't have a nub to compare since they asked me to take a blood test instead due to my age and my next u/s is 20 weeks.

However...they asked if I would like this optional blood test which is supposed to be better than an amniocentesis.

I took this off the internet:
This optional test can detect genetic disorders such as Tay-Sachs and sickle cell anemia, and rule out chromosomal disorders like Down syndrome. It also determines baby’s gender with total accuracy.

Soooo...they thought they'd have results back today, but they haven't called yet. I am now wavering back and forth if I want to know or have a surprise!!

Wow! Do you know what kind of test it was? I believe I'm scheduled for bloodwork the same day as my ultrasound and I'm wondering if this is part of it

My NT scan is Feb 13. I just scheduled it. I'm super nervous and just hoping and praying that the baby is healthy and also excited to see so much detail of the LO.

mine is scheduled for like Feb 4th. I still haven't totally decided if i want to do it. I have already had more ultrasounds than any of my other pregnancies and it makes me a little nervous... but it is cool to get to see the baby!

Here is mine, but I don't think there is a nub present in the picture. On the upside, NT measures normal! I have never had an NT scan before, and it was a great experience for us.

I am having my NT scan in 2 weeks and I am soo excited about it because it will be my first time getting it done! I am not going to look at the nub since I don't want to know the gender, he he! My friend had a great girl nub picture and she ended up having a girl

My NT scan is Feb 5th. I'll definitely be asking for a nub shot I had a 12 week u/s at the same center with my first son, and they told me then he was a boy, so I'm hoping to get a guess out of the tech.

I'm totally new at trying to guess but if that white line toward the bottom of baby sort of is it, that would be really girly, I think?

I'm not quite sure that I see a nub here, but IF it is what I think it might be it looks girly.


I'm still confused with my own ultrasound pic. It's a hard one.

I would be thrilled with a girl, but my momma instinct says boy (the more the merrier)!! So, we will see!!
