I was just talking to a buddy of mine who recently found out his wife is pregnant. I asked if he thought they'd find out what they were having, and he figured they probably would. I swear, my wife and I are the only people I know who DIDN'T find out. Each kid was a surprise. In out natural childbirth class before Hannah, we were the only ones, which I thought was amusing. I just think it's one of the few absolute surprises in this world and I wanted to experience it to its fullest.

So ... did you find out?

I love surprises! But I wanted to know so badly that I couldn't just wait! I promised myself if the next child I have it a girl, I won't find out for the third.. my mother works in a hair/nail salon.. they would have killed me if i didnt find out

This last time around we really wanted a boy to go with the girl we already had. I almost literally floated around the room when my son came out. I actually got to say, "IT'S A BOY!!!" before the midwife did :)

I had swore my whole life that I would not find out the sex, that I wanted that suprise of knowing ehen the baby actually was delivered. Well then the ultrasound got closer, my mother kept begging me and I was sick of buying blue and green things so I found out and I will most likely do the same thing next time. OH well, I was never one who liked suprises anyway :)

I look at it this way, it's a surprise whenever you find out. I don't think I could have gone this long without knowing what to expect.

We found out the sex of my son at my ultrasound. I'm not big on surprises, plus we already had names picked out and I thought it would be nice to give the little person growing inside of me an identity. So whenever I would talk to him in utero, I would use the name we had picked out.
I'm also like to have everything planned, so this way it was a lot easier knowing the sex. Thank goodness they weren't wrong or Alexander would have become Alexandra, even though we had decided on Alyssa for a girl :)

I wanted to find out with my first but she wouldn't cooperate but we did find out a few days before she was born. We didn't have any names agreed on when she arrived and poor thing didn't have a name for a day or two. I hate yellow and we had a lot of yellow stuff from shower gifts. My second wasn't shy and he gave us the full frontal. Boys name are tough. We knew early on he was a boy but couldn't agree on a name until about a month before he was due. I wanted to know to pick out a name but obviuosly that didn't work and to have their room/clothes/etc gender ready.

I to swore I would wait to find out until the baby was born. I had anticipated me having a child for such a long time however was waiting for the right man to have it with, one that I knew would be a great father. I was the last sister out of four to have a child and the youngest in their bunch is 2 years old - oldest 15. I was a manager for a photo place when I became preganant and after 2 years of being the favorite photographer for all little ones I couldn't wait to have one. Then the day came and I found out I was. I was way to overwhelmed and due to prepared person I like to be I had to know. I wanted to start preparing the babys room . I don' t like yellow and green and didn't want a shower with gifts I would have to return.LOL I really wanted a girl!!! (boys are perfect too - I have 5 nephews)Then everyone and their mother said oh its a boy. I think youre having a boy, did you have ultrasound, I think its a boy. It drove me nuts, everyone claiming to know it all and I wanted to know anyway. First ultrasound they were 95 percent sure because baby closed legs and they couldn't verify, 2nd one it was clear as day - legs straight out. I cried with so much joy, I had her name picked out before I knew I was pregnant.(besides it felt great too to tell those that swore they knew IT IS A GIRL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
