Ask our experts to guess your baby's gender
Channel Mum

Boy or Girl?   

Our lovely Community Manager Lisa, is a bit of an expert when it comes to the “nub and skull theory” – this is a special way of helping to guess whether you’re carrying a girl or a boy. While traditional medical scans don’t show a baby’s sex until 20 weeks, some experts believe it is possible to predict a tot’s sex from a 12-week scan by analysing the shape of its skull and ‘nub’ area around the private parts. Babies with a ‘nub’ – or genital tubercle – angled at greater than 30 degrees are likely to be boys, while girls’ nubs sits below 30 degrees.  Lisa has trained our other Parent Helpers so we now have a team ready and waiting to guess your baby’s gender in the Pregnancy, Labour and Birth support group. 

Want to take part and let us guess?

All you need to do to get our team to guess the gender of your baby, is start a new topic here in our Pregnancy, Labour and Birth forum, give your topic a name and upload your scan photo, then just wait for one of our team to pop in and let you know what they think.  Once you know for sure what you’re having or your little one has arrived do come back and let us know if we were right!

Not pregnant but still want to play?

Join in with our guesses! We’d love you to all take part and let us know if you think it’s pink or blue too 🙂 Plus why not test the team out with an old scan photo!
