I'm completely torn on whether or not to find out the gender (if baby cooperates) for this pregnancy. DH has said that he wants to know and can't promise that he can keep it from me if he knows and I don't. He said that he would try very hard not to let it slip but sometimes he doesn't think before he speaks. Part of me really doesn't want to find out because I think it would be fun to be surprised during delivery but on the other hand what if I go through the entire pregnancy thinking one gender, and it turns out to be the other? Will I be disappointed? Will I not bond as much with this baby (during the remainder of my pregnancy) because I don't know the sex? I'm a big planner so not finding out would be going against the norm for me. DH's argument is that he'd really like to personalize the nursery, and I'd have to agree. I'd feel bad if we had another girl and I didn't make the nursery frilly and girlie. I don't really feel any rush to get the nursery done since the baby will be sleeping in our room for the first few months anyhow. But, I do know how much work it will be for DH to try and get things done after I have the baby and I know it's not something he's up for.
