    yes, I want to know and I am impatient! Plus i think having a baby is exciting enough that way you can spread out the surprises and happy moments!

    My willpower isn’t strong enough not to.  We’ll definitely find out ahead of time.

    Definitely with my first.  MAYBE I’d have the willpower to wait for the surprise w/ my second.  Maybe.

    i’m a planner, i already have different rooms plan if it’s a boy or girl. plus, my favorite color is pink so if i had to do neutral and then had a girl, i’d be very sad.

    No one in my family has ever found our the sex before the baby was born, so I think that I would want to be surprised too. But I just asked my fiance this question yesterday and he said he would want to know. So I might be able to be convinced to break with tradition. It just seems so much more exciting to have it be a surprise!

    Originally I did not want to know but DH does. SOOO we are going to find out but we aren’t going to tell anyone until right before the baby is due. That way we don’t get all pink or blue stuff.

    I considered not finding out…until I went and looked at the clothing options. There was just so little available in the gender neutral colors and I couldn’t handle waiting till after the baby was born to buy all that stuff. I’m just too much of a planner! Plus everything was yellow which is just not one of my favorite colors either.

    I’m pretty sure we would find out.  Why wait?  It’s still a surprise when you find out, you just find out earlier.

    My sister didn’t find out with either of her two.  Her first she was sure was a boy so bought all blue and it paid off, she had a boy.  Second she was sure would be a girl, she called the baby a she and bought all pink clothes and only picked out girl names…..and then had a boy.  Opps.  I dont know why she never found out considering she had her mind so made up each time.

    My Dad told me to never find out, he said it was like spolining christmas.  BUT I found out with each pregnancy and I am so glad I did!!  It allowed me to have things planned ahead of time.  i don’t regret finding out one bit!!

    When I was pregnant with Moose, we never wanted to know. It was so much fun because he thought we were having a girl and I a boy.

     

    I miss you Moosey.

    Both my hubby and I want to be surprised. I think we are in the minority. 🙂  I want to hear the doctor say, “It’s a boy/girl”  I think it’ll be more exciting to be surprised. I don’t mind doing the nursery in neutral colors, because if we have a second baby afterwards of the other gender, we wouldn’t spend the money to redo it anyway. (Meaning I’m not going to do a pink nursery, then change to blue for example)…I love greens and yellows. 🙂

    I’m just glad my hubby and I both are in agreement in waiting to be surprised. He’s from India and you aren’t allowed to find out the gender in advance anyway-due to the baby girl thing-similar to China..it’s very sad…but my point is that Indians are used to the gender surprises and I’m glad he wants this too since I’ve always wanted to be surprised!
