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?

After finding out the sex of each of my three children ahead of time and thinking those who didn't were crazy, I'm planning to be on the green team this time with my fourth and final baby! My husband is surprised about my request not to know ths time, but is humoring me. I never thought I would do this, but now I keep thinking about how amazing the news will be in the delivery room. It's my last chance to experience the surprise. Dyan

We are this time, with my daughter I did not know at all but had a feeling she was a girl. I can't wait to find out this time! I'm hoping for a boy but my fiance wants a girl so he can be scary to all her boyfriends! lol

Yeah, they actually do it at my ob/gyn office now, it's $100, but I'm not sure if we'll be able to do that with our son's birthday on December 3rd then Christmas, then my nephews birthday the 28th...we always have a lot going on and quite a few people to buy for during the holidays. We'll see. My husband and I will have to talk about it and see if we'll have the extra money during that time. It really would be pretty awesome to open an envelope on Christmas morning and know the sex!

@ Kadins_momma07.  Could you go for a 3D/4D ultrasound and find out around that time?  It might be a thought if you are willing to pay for it.

Well, I found out this week that they do the big ultrasound with the gender at 24 weeks, and I'll only be about 19 at Christmas time...so there goes that great idea! Grrr!! lol

I really like that idea of finding out on Christmas!

 

I didn't find out what I was having with my daughter and I enjoyed not knowing and being surprised in the end.  I think I would like to do the same this time around also.  However, I'm not so sure my bf, daughter, or family would let that fly lol.

We already have one of each so have decided to let this one be a big surprise! We did it with our first and I still remember how exciting it was to find out the moment she was born!

That's something we've been debating!  Neither of us really care for gender neutral stuff...I definitely want gender specific clothes, carseat, stroller, everything. So if we figure out a way to get around the neutral stuff then we'll let it be a surprise. Yesterday I had this idea though, that we could get the ultrasound done and have the doctor put the pictures in an envelope and we could open it on Christmas morning with family! That way we've kind of waited, and it's a special gift on Christmas morning that I'll definitely be anxious to open, and we can still get the gender specific things we like. I don't know...like I said, it's a debate right now lol! I'll keep you guys posted on that one. With our son we did find out the sex...and of course when shopping as soon as we left the doctor's office!

I found out with an ultrasound with my first and will do it again! I don't like not knowing things, lol. If I could find out right now I would.
