As every mother knows, the moment you find out you are pregnant, your brain is filled with questions. What will the baby look like? What name would be most suitable? What do I need to buy? But perhaps the most asked question in the first trimester is, “What will the baby be? Boy or girl?”
It seems that there are many planning details that do not feel complete until you know for sure the gender of your growing baby. Luckily for you, we are about to give you 3 ways to know the gender of your baby within the first 13 weeks of pregnancy.
The Ramzi Theory
The Ramzi theory is a widely known early gender prediction method that focuses on your developing baby. According to its creator Dr. Ramzi, about 97% of male fetuses will develop their placenta on the right side of the mother’s uterus, and 97% of female fetuses will develop if on the left side. Expert analysts can study early ultrasounds from 5 weeks of pregnancy and beyond, locate the chorionic villi – which will later develop into the placenta – and give you a gender prediction based on the Ramzi theory. If you have an ultrasound from 5-10 weeks of pregnancy and wonder how this method works, simply head over to Baby Gender Pros and send them your ultrasound.
The Nub Theory
Another ultrasound-based way to know the gender of your baby before your second trimester is by studying your 12-week ultrasound and learning about the Nub theory. The nub theory has been scientifically backed to be up to 99% accurate at predicting the gender of your baby by analyzing the genital tubercle. According to the nub theory studies, male tubercles – also known as nub-raise to be 30 or more degrees than the baby’s spine; on the other hand, female nubs tend to stay parallel to the spine. Although it is not a theory that provides 100% sure gender results, it has the highest accuracy rate possible without getting a genetic test or waiting until your second trimester. If you have an ultrasound 11 weeks or more, you can send it to Baby Gender Pros to get a gender prediction from their experts.
Many blood test companies claim to tell you the gender of your baby with 99% accuracy. These tests take a blood sample from your finger or arm and analyze it to see if they find any male DNA. If so, you are likely having a boy. If not, there are chances you are having a girl. However, incorrect care of your sample, contaminated drawing sites, and previous pregnancies can throw your results off. We encourage you to research before you purchase these tests and, if possible, only do a blood test at your doctor’s office to avoid incorrect results and disappointment.
We know that there are many uncertainties during pregnancy and learning as much as possible about your baby is essential for peace of mind, planning, and bonding. We hope learning about these three early gender prediction methods helps you get a glimpse into your growing belly and provide a sense of empowerment and peace that lead to a happy and healthy pregnancy period.
