I cannot even believe I'm 12 weeks along already! I received a couple comments that I've been slacking with the belly pics, so here you go:
My mom called me today to tell me that my aunt saw a wee-wee on the first u/s pic in my previous post. I was insistent that it was impossible to see a wee-wee this early and that it was either part of the umbilical cord or leg.
This of course got my curiosity up and I started researching early gender detection. I ran into this link.
If you look at the "9 week old embryo - 11 weeks Pregnant", you can see that both genders have a "nub". The boy's will become a penis and the girl's a clitoris.
If you then look at the 12 week "Angle of the dangle", you can see that a boy has a 30~ degree from the spine while the girl's is parallel to the spine.
This link contains early boy nub u/s photos that were later confirmed as boy. Many of these look a lot like Seven.
This link contains early girl nub u/s photos that were later confirmed as girl. These really don't look like Seven.
So after viewing all this, I'd have to say that it sure does look like Seven has a nub. I held up a piece of paper to the spine and then another to the nub and it was a near perfect 30 degree angle.
I then posted this u/s pic on the website listed in the link above and asked for opinions. Everyone predicted boy, not a single one said girl.
OMG, could we really be having a BOY???
