    I’m like you blondiebee – I think I will make it up in my head one way or the other and then be surprised when the baby isn’t what I think.  Not that I have a preference for sex but I know I’ll convince myself of which it is even if I don’t find out so I’d rather just know.

    I absolutely do not want to know.  I am so scared of a miscarriage and I think I would get too attached if I knew the sex.  Also, we are going to have multiple children, so not completely decorating in pink or blue is a good thing.  Lastly, I’m a bit old fashioned and just like a good surprise.

    We’re not expecting a baby but I definitely would want a surprise.  Although I completely understand why some people don’t…

    I’m a few years away from having a baby, but I totally need to know the sex when my time comes!!! And I keep telling FI, it had better be a girl! LOL! I’d want to get the nursery ready, etc. I grew up in a yellow room and I don’t want to do that to my kids 😉

    I’m with you blondiebee- I wanna know!  I wanna buy cute boy or girl things, the gender neutral stuff is cute too, but I prefer going one way or the other.  And to me its enough to be surprised when you find out you’re pregnant, then to see what he or she looks like.

    I would definitely want to know when the time comes. I am just way too impatient to wait and see!

    The way I see it is that its a surprise either way. (unless you do IVF sex selection for genetic reasons). So you just pick when the surprise will be! Personally I will want it to be a surprise, atleast the first time. Maybe for subsequent babies I’d like to know.

    My step mum found out when her and my mum did IVF, and it really helped us all bond to the pregnancy knowing there was a little girl on the way! Also, because they used an anonymous donor, we didn’t know much about the donor’s physical appearance other than blonde, blue eyed, caucasian, etc. He could have been butt ugly! Luckily my lil sis is as cute as a button. So seeing what she looked like was a big surprise!

    We kept it a surprise. Though it is doubtful we’ll have another, it’s hard to say if we would keep it a surprise the second time around.

    Congrats!  We just match a lot.  I got married like 9 1/2 months ago.  And I’m also a blondie. 

    I’ve never been on the pill we just use our own version of NFP.  No pre-nats for me just regular vitamins but I will start taking mommy vitamins if I get pregnant.
