Just wondering how many of you (given the opportunity) will find out if you're having a boy or a girl?

I found out with my first, no chance I wasn't going to.

I didn't find out with either of the boys.

DEFINITELY!! I'm not even waiting for my 19-20 week U/S. I have already scheduled a 3D/4D U/S at 16 weeks on July 9th to find out. HAHA. I have absolutely NO PATIENTS and there is no way I could not find out. DH feels the same way. I am a planner though, so I need to know or else I would go completely crazy.

Not this time around I won't be finding out. All dh fault, he doesn't want to know and if I find out I won't be able to hold it in so I'm gonna be nice this time and not find out just for him.. it sucks that I can't go out to buy all the little pink or blue stuff.

I think this time we will find out. We did for our first child, but not for our second. I had a Csection for #2 and like a pp said, it's nice to have that element of surprise and the whole family is dying to hear " is it a boy or girl?" My husband said that was so exciting for him to announce. This time our oldest will be 7 and we want to include our kids as much as possible. If he wants to wait, we'll wait , but I predict he'll want to know. We're even asking him for some name suggestions. We asked DD too (she's 2 ) but hers are not the best- Mickey mouse, and clifford the big red dog! LOL!

Lol clifford the big red dog, now that's funny. We haven't told out dd yet. She's five so I can only imagine what she would give for names

LOL, I wanted to make sure I got the first available app. @16 weeks. I was worried if I waited she would be full at that time and then I would have to wait. Its a package deal so I will go @16 weeks for gender then back @ 28 weeks I think, for a good look at baby.

Honestly, I am hoping for a girl and have been since DS #1. I was a bit disappointed when I found out both boys were boys but quickly got over it and can't imagine life with out my boys. After trying so hard for 19 months to conceive and then to lose 2 babies during that time, if this baby is a boy I will be elated. I go back and forth on weather I want a boy or a girl. lol. So either way, I am going to be so happy just to have a baby make it. That's all we want at this point. Although, I have a feeling its a girl :)

We were thinking the same thing as you. With our first I kinda of didn't want to find out, but my husband really did. With the second we figured we might as well so we could know whether to get boy or girl stuff. This was also our surprise pregnancy and is going to be our last so we want to be surprised about the gender and wait until delivery. Can I truly wait another 29 weeks? Lol
