    Not heard of the Nub Theory before? This test uses early scans to try and determine the sex of your little one. The idea is that between 11-13 weeks all babies have a ‘nub’ in between their legs called a genital tubercle which can give you an indication of the sex of your baby depending on its positioning. The theory goes that if it’s pointing upwards of the spine 30 degrees it’s a boy and if it’s below the spine it’s a girl.
