Boy or Girl- Will You Find Out?

Do you plan to find out if you are having a boy or a girl before baby is born?  Who's planning to stay on the green team? BTDT ladies- what did you do with previous pregnancies?

We found out with both previous pregnancies. This time I left it up to DH. I know he really wants a boy and I figured if we waited until he or she is born, he wouldn't be able to be disappointed if it was a girl. But he says he wants to find out. I think he's convinced himself it's another girl so he won't be disappointed. I think it's a boy because of this terrible m/s that I never had with either DD.

We found out with our DS. We went back and forth then ended up finding out. With this one we also hope to find out. If we have a girl this time and we have a 3rd child I would like to go green.

I have found out every time.  But, with this being my LAST pregnancy and already having everything in boy and girl because of the twins, we will do everything in our power to NOT find out.  If it means turning away from the screen at the anatomy u/s, then so be it.  I am 101% determined to have this one be a surprise.  We have three of each, so either way it will be a tiebreaker.

We found out with our first baby (a boy) and will be finding out again (hopefully!) Neither one of us could imagine not finding out if the u/s provides the info. In fact, one of the first things DH asked me after I got the positive HPT was "so, when do we get to find out if it's a boy or a girl?"

As far as excitement on the delivery day goes, the first thing I said when they plopped DS on my chest was "Oh, it's a baby" as if I expected it to be something else:smileyhappy:. So, yeah, I can't see how the surprise of learning the gender could make birthing day any more amazing.

I love your idea Tracy! Yeah, make the last one a surprise! I will be finding out this time cause with two boys already i want to prepare myself if it's another boy. Or plan a fairly elaborate baby shower...never had one before so if Im having a girl I'm organising my own garden tea party... :smileyhappy:

I'm trying to convince DH to wait until delivery day. We'll see.

Yes! I have three boys so I just have to know! I'll need to prepare myself if it is another boy!
