My cousins’ dad (my uncle) didn’t want to know the sex of any of his 6 grandkids before they were born. Everyone else around him knew, and I’m sure he probably figured out a few of them when someone let a clue slip, but for some reason he didn’t want to know.  Maybe he just likes the surprise?

I like to be surprised by babies genders … I kind of feel like it is taking the fun out of it to know ahead of time.

Maybe he likes the idea of a suprise 🙂

My husband and I are telling both sets of parents but they all can’t wait to know…I guess I’m no help, 😛 sorry!

My parents will probably leave it up to us whether we want to tell them- if we find out ahead of time they would probably want to know- but they are old fashioned and they prefer to wait until the birth to find out.  My mom had a daughter when I was 15/ 16 (about ten years ago) and she didn’t tell us the gender- I don’t know if she eve knew (?)  In our family I guess it is common to wait.  Maybe that’s just the way he rolls.  It doesn’t necessarily mean that he isn’t excited, but I can see how you might wonder.

Oh Lordy my parents were DYING to know.  So were DH’s parents.  Everyone was constantly calling us to see if we knew yet.  I think we may keep the next one a secret for a little while just to keep them in suspense.  But our families are both really into the grandbaby thing and would love to know the minute we did.

My mom already has me on specific instructions not to tell her what the sex is, and we aren’t even pregnant. She wants to be suprised. I respect that but I’m a planner so I have to know, I will go crazy if I don’t know. So Darling Husband and I talked about it and we’re considering finding out for ourselves and just not telling anyone else. Mostly because we aren’t going to register for gender specific stuff because we want to have more than one kid. Plus I think it’d be hard to tell everyone but my mom and have her not find out.
