Did you find out or wait?

When you were pregnant did you find out the sex of the baby or did you wait? What made you decide to do either? What number pregnancy was it?

  • I waited with my first, found out with the second. Waiting was more ejoyable than finding out early.

  • I found out asap lol.. I wanted to go get baby clothes before she was born so i didn't have to shop for everything once she was here and decorate the room lol. She's my first baby =)

  • With both my daughter and my son, I was too excited to wait. I just loved stocking up on my boy/girl clothes and stuff. But right now we are TTC #3 and have decided to let this one be a surprise since it will be our last child ;)

  • With my first, I decided not to find out at the ultra sound. Since I only had one US, when I decided later I wanted to know, they told me they didn't write that down, so I would just have to wait! Turns out it was a girl (which I thought the time!) and now when I think about them saying "its a girl" it almost brings tears to my eyes!!

    With #2, there was no anticipation like that. I had 10 or 12 US, so I knew the whole time it was going to be a girl.

    with #3, I had 3 US and an Amnio. I knew he was a boy.

    I think not knowing was more exciting for me.

  • With my first 2 I didn't have any ultrasounds, no medical reason so I refused. I knew with my third.

  • We found out. DD was our first child. I wanted to wait but Dh was really really against it. I thought he was going to explode on the way to the ultrasound he was so excited lol

  • I've only been pregnant once and I hated it. I waited to find out, so I could be surprised. I figured something good had to come from all that misery.

  • We waited with both kids. Like a pp said, there was no need for an ultrasound, so we didn't do one. I liked being surprised.

  • I couldn't wait to find out but if I have another one I think I'll wait tho.... It would have been alot of fun to find on when he was born!
