NUB THEORY aka Angle of the Dangle Theory at 12 weeks pregnant!

Video taken from the channel: The Mims Life


If your baby’s nub is angled higher than 30 degrees in relation to its spine, that indicates your baby is a boy, according to nub theorists. Now, no one is saying to whip out a protractor to. Using this method is highly accurate. When your baby’s nub (genital tubercle) is forming and visible around 12 weeks, the angle of the dangle can assist in predicting the sex of your baby.

What is a nub? Before about 15 week gestation, both males and females have genital tubercles, also known as a nub. The nub theory is the theory used to decide whether you are having a boy or a girl.

Often called the ‘angle of the dangle’. Boys angle upwards and girls lay flat, This is a FACT and not a theory! The genital tubercle develops into either a penis or clitoris and this is possible to view from around 12 weeks by analysing the. The nub theory is all based around the angle of your baby’s nub. If the nub is pointing upwards, at an angle of more than 30 degrees to the spine, the baby is likely to be a boy.

If it’s pointing downwards, straight out or upwards at an angle of under 30 degrees, the chances are you’re having a girl. The gender of your baby depends on the angle of the nub of your fetus and also its shape and length. Suppose the nub happens to be tipping upwards, in an angle not less than 30 degrees of the spine of your fetus, mostly your baby will be a male.

The Nub Theory uses the “angle of the dangle” to determine whether the baby is a boy or girl. The nub begins to change around 11 weeks, but analysis of the nub angle is most accurate beginning at 12 weeks through 14 weeks gestation. Learn the timeline and characteristics of the genital tubercle in our Nub Theory Guide. The angle of the dangle (as its commonly referred to) is not the only gender marker we look for when predicting your baby’s sex, there is so much more that we take in to account.

The spine could be curved/straight due to your baby’s position in the womb, the exact gestation of the fetus, the bladder position which helps to determine the angle. It’s the angle of the dangle: Boy nubs angle upward Girl nubs lie down flatter Note that isn’t a theory; it’s a known biological fact, and is due to the genital tubercle’s development into a penis or a clitoris. The nub angle can be seen in a profile image of the baby. Look for the angle of the nub compared to the baby’s. It is otherwise referred to as the ‘angle of the dangle’ and may indicate if the baby is a girl or a boy.

If the angle of the nub is over 30° from the spine, it is said to be a boy. If the angle is below 30°, it is said to be a girl (2). The angle of the nub is determined by carefully examining the ultrasound scan picture.

The theory simply states, during early pregnancy on 12-week ultrasound, if the angle of the nub is beyond 30° from the spine, it is considered to be a boy whereas if the angle is below 10° then it is considered to be a girl.

At the 20-week anomaly scan it can be possible to determine the sex of the baby, depending on the baby’s position.

  • @chall1011 I know it’s not a cord. It could very well be a penis and the ultrasound is just picking it up weird. Or it’s swollen girl parts which majority of babies goods are swollen at this stage. No telling what this baby is?

  • I honestly never knew this was a thing until this video! We’ve got another scan tomorrow and if they still can’t tell me the gender I’ll definitely be letting you guys have a guess! xx

  • We’re team green but I’m totally guessing too lol but I can’t see the darn nub in our photos from 12 weeks but this video was helpful

  • Definitely a baby boy!! The risen nub shows the nub full. Your other scan shows a partial. And potty doesn’t show true gender! Congratulations on your son xx

  • I agree, I vote girl. Wish you a healthy pregnancy!

    After two girls I was super anxious, so I did the at home finger prick test and it said boy at around 10 weeks������ I was so happy it was also correct at my anatomy scan as well.

  • Want to find out your babies gender! Find out at 12 weeks. Check out the “nub theory club” on Facebook. They’ll tell you if it’s a boy or a girl.
