Did you know the gender of your child before they were born?

I for sure did the moment they gave me my ultrasound and asked if I wanted to know the gender I was like "Hell yea", lol. I'd go crazy not knowing but that's jus me. My friend Leslie on the other hand wanted it to be a surprise.

  • My first 2 I didn't want to know. Since we already had one of each with babies #1 & 2, we did want to know with babies #3 &4. It was nice to know ahead of time so we could plan and get the nurseries ready.

  • i wanted to know SOOOO bad. LOL. i ran to the OB almost every week to get an ultrasound done. Just to figure out the gender. My hubby said it was a girl before we even know for sure i was pregnant. LOL.. and he was right.

    I saw that pretty white/pink furniture i wanted to have so bad. princess style. They also had it in white/blue for the little prince. I just needed to know which color to order! :D haha

    I was so excited about it, to figure out the gender i mean. I could have never waited until birth. haha

  • Yeah! We found out..I would have gone nuts not knowing. Especially since we thought we were having a boy, along with 98% of our family and friends...So we wanted to know, so we could clear the air and plan lol!

    FYI..the 2% was right we did have a girl lol

  • I knew, before the ultrasound, but definitely wanted the confirmation. My oldest sister has waited until the birth for all 3 of her children. I couldn't do that. I like to be prepared, but then again, she's loaded, so it's not big deal for her to go buy everything at the same time.

  • Yeah...I really wanted to know even though some ppl said don't take away the suprise. I was like the suprise will be what he looks like lol. I worked in a hospital at the time so I had my fried do an ultra sound a few good times.

  • we waited until the birth

    Answer by gypsymama532 at 5:42 PM on Mar. 7, 2009

  • Yes, we found out. I don't want to know the next time, however, my husband does, so I don't know if i'll be able to wait. My sister-in-law didn't find out for either of her two girls.

  • We found out as soon as we could with my first DD. With my second we decided that DH would find out and tell our families and I would wait to be surprised when she was born. My dear dear MIL decided to call me and say "are you sure it's another girl?" I was so upset and I started crying cause I really wanted to be surprised. So yes I knew with both. Although I wanted DD2 to be a surprise :( maybe next time
