  • WAIT WAIT WAIT! i found out with the first 2 (boys) and waited for my little girl. it was such a wonderful surprise! i let my DH find out so he could buy (and hide) the right colors. the only hard part was picking a name. it was much easier to choose a name when the sex was known.

  • I always thought waiting would be really neat, but once I found out I was pregnant I just had to know. I wanted to name the baby, and start decorating and planning. I felt so much closer to him when I found out that he was a boy, and could go ahead and call him by his name.
    If you can, wait, more power to you! How suspenseful!

  • I found out with both of mine to be prepared clothing wise, and decoration wise. I too developed that bond and had that first name basis going before I gave birth.

  • There aren't too many mysteries in life, so wait and dream of what you are carrying.

  • i would never be able to wait. i like to pick out a name, and be able to talk to my baby as what it is while its still in my belly. i like to be able to pick the right color clothes and bedding for the crib and just be prepared. its a suprise enough as it is. its going to be a suprise either way, just one you have to wait longer for and im very impatient.

  • This is our first and I couldn't wait to find out because I want to plan! :)
