Early gender guess: Nuchal thickness is the U/S appearance of neck tissue in the first 3 months of a pregnancy. Of 56,000 pts, the neck in females is about 10% thinner. No one knows why. http://s3.amazonaws.com/publicationslist.org/data/kevinspencer1/ref-184/pnd2009_29_578_581.pdf The measurement is used to exclude Down's, not for sexing. Most reliable is to wait until you can see a penis later in the pregnancy.
