I am not pregnant, but (hopefully) when the time comes my husband and I would want to know so we could share the goods new with our families.

I am not pregnant yet, but I know forsure I will want to find out... I am such a planner, I don't think I could wait 9 months to find out. I know my husband would prefer not to find out, but this is one thing he is going to have to go with me on lol!

When I was pregnant the first time, we had gone through a lot to get to that point, so we had decided that since the pregnancy wasn't a complete surprise (we were going through tests and medications) that we were going to wait to find out. Unfortunately before we could find out anyway, we lost that baby. We were surprised a few months later by being pregnant again. This time we decided that I wanted to plan too much so we found out. Good thing too because at that ultrasound, the first shot was his legs wide open. LOL.
IF we ever get pregnant again, I'm not sure what we will do.

I think when it's my turn, the just waiting til the 3-4 months will be long enough for me. It is still a surprise, just given earlier :)

I'm on the fence about finding out ahead of time. I would rather have gender-neutral things, because even if I do end up having a girl, I hate that bubblegum pink that is so prevalent in girl-oriented baby things. I'd probably do any nursery with light green walls (think lima bean color), and dark brown wood furniture because I think those colors are very soothing. I might do some custom artwork of my own as a mural on one of the walls.

I've got a while to think about this though, since we aren't planning on TTC till next summer.

Edit: Actually asked my husband whether he'd want to know or not. He definitely wants to know, but we decided that we won't tell anyone other than our immediate family. I said I didn't want to be bombarded by gender-specific stuff (especially for a girl; too much pink makes me want to be sick). He joked that we could just tell everyone the baby is a boy no matter what.

We both want it to be a surprise--it's a pretty amazing surprise and you don't get many like it in life. I love gender-neutral nurseries--green and cream/brown, earth tones, farmyard designs. I've got to admit though, cute gender-neutral baby clothes are hard to find! I love the dresses for girls and the little old man cardigans for boys. We'll just have to wait to buy them until he/she arrives!

We're currently pregnant with our first child. I didn't want to know what we were having, but my hubby wanted to know. Hubby rarely asks for anything, so I felt like I had to let him know what we were having.

Yes I definitely want to know. It's too suspenseful to wait! I found out with both of my boys and it was one of my best moments ever. I am kind of hoping #3 will be a boy again but a girl would make it interesting at my house!

I want to know for sure. I want to start talking to the baby before it's born and call it by his/her name. Plus I want to decorate the baby room for the gender.

We are planning on being surprised, but it's been hard not to know!

I will, it will drive me crazy not to know. That and if we have a boy my husband will need the extra time to pick a name from my list.

For both of my children I 'knew'. I just had a weird sense about it. For my oldest, my mom in law went with me, and she found out, but kept it a surprise from me. For my 2nd, we found out at 22 weeks, a girl. For the third baby--we are working on conception--we will for sure find out. I already have a sense though that it will be a boy, although my hubby wants a girl. I really don't care either way. We shall see, and I will for sure tell=)


Goal 1000 fitness minutes/month!

I may not be to the finish line yet--but at least I am in the race!

A healthy me is up to ME!!!!!

Do you plan on finding out the gender of your baby? Did you find out with other children?
