    Default Nub vs 19 week scan

    So I thought my Bub was a boy based on nub theory, but we found out girl at our 19 week scan! I am wondering if the thing that I thought was a nub (sticky out bit) was actually part of the cord/leg and the real nub is that white line just beneath it that looks much more girly?

    Out of interest I'm wondering if Any nub experts here care to offer the expertise on which is the real nub?

    I know the 19 week scan is much more accurate than nub theory but it was a huge (and amazingly awesome) shock as I was so sure we were having another boy!

    I can't see the pic, not sure if it's just an issue with my app though

    Hmm that's weird! I will upload it again ETA not as good quality as the first pic as I had to take a photo of a photo on my phone.

    I can't read nubs on ultrasounds to save my life 😂

    based on the first pic attached (second one doesn't load for me), I would've said a boy too.

    congrats on your little girl!!

    Looks like the ultrasound was too far over to one side for the nub to be shown (can see a leg so it mustn't be in the centre), but in any case congrats on your girl!

    Not the long white line at the bottom (spine) but the brighter white line to the top of the circle that is a little forked
