How did you and your SO/DH deal with finding the sex of your baby?

We just found out that we are expecting our first little one. My DH wants to know the sex but I don't know what do do. How can we work this out...has anyone found out when your SO didn't want to know and how did things go? Did they keep it a secrete or not?

  • My dad found out, my mom didn't. Dad actually kept it a secret the entire time, no hints!

  • I didnt want to find out but my hubby did... I finaly convinced him to let it be a surprise and what happens the doc looks at the ultra sound and goes oh what a cute little boy you have.... Lol... Then remembering we didnt want to know says oh well we cant really tell today anyways... after that the urge to know if it was a boy or girl almost killed us (didnt know if doc was serious or if it was a cover up) scedualed a ultra sound to find out and they couldnt tell!!!! Ahh I thought we were going to loose it... finaly two more ultra sounds say its a girl... Now we have been told three times that it is a girl... They better be right because I painted her room pink! If you can wait and let it be a surprise thats awsom.. I admit I bent under the presure... lol

  • If he's good at keeping secrets, not just from you but from everyone, since others might not be able to keep the secret, let him find out and just let it be a surprise for you and everyone else!
