That looks like a boy..

The reason sonographers won't do gender prediction before 16 weeks is because girl and boys genitals look the same until the further development happens closer to 16 weeks. There is a theory I've been reading on called the angle of the dangle.. basically says a boy's parts are at a 30 degree angle compared with a girls which is always horizontal given the spine/back is as horizontal as posssible during the u/s. Our LO was hiding his or her parts so we were unable to tell. That looks like a boy to me!!

By the way.. in the third photo.. are the legs vertical to the top? That looks like a shot from above which makes it difficult to see what direction the nub is pointed.

All babies have "nubs" at this point. And from the first pic, I am actually going to guess girl and I'll show you a link explaining the whole theory on "nubs".

Embryo Development external genital sex organs - angle of the dangle boy or girl ultrasound gender scan - Baby2see

Also, here is my pic of Rayne that's similar to your first pic there. She's definitely a girl.



Anyway, only time will tell. Just wanted to share that.

Yes, they all have nubs but it's about the angle. The legs were vertical in that pic so I could see it better in a picture, but she did check the angle from a different view and predicted a boy that way. I put 12 weeks, because that's what my original due date was, but it actually measured at 13 weeks, and the site I checked out says they are 85% accurate guesses of gender at 13 weeks.

Either way I'm not saying it's a boy yet, just interesting. I will find out for sure on September 12th!
