All my results said girl and today at my NT scan baby was looking a LOT like a boy! I'm 13 weeks today so of course its early but the tech said he was looking boy for sure. I actually saw it on the scan before she said anything...his legs spread and there was a little pole right b/t! We are super excited, this will be our second boy...think we'll wait to do any painting until after the 20 week u/s though!

awww congrats on a little boy. Was the nub at more than a 30 degree angle from his spine? Apparently they all have nubs at this point so if the tech was going off there just being a nub there, she may be wrong. Either way though, a baby boy is AWEOMSE!!

angle was hard to tell because it was from the bottom, but it looked bigger than a nub =) So we'll see...

Girls can have long nubs too at this stage...if it's 30 degrees or less from the spine then it indicates girl and more than 30 degrees then it can be a boy.

Well I *think* I'm in the same boat Laura! I thought I saw something on our 12 week u/s but I am no expert. My gut says this is another boy. I wonder if we'll both end up with 2 boys?? hehe.......

Congrats on (maybe) boy #2, Laura! Having two boys would be awesome. I didn't get to hazard a guess at my u/s b/c the screen was turned away for most of it. I'll let you know what they say at the 20 wk one! : )
