Did you find out

if you were having a boy or a girl? What made you decide either way? Do you wish you would have done it differently? I found out with my first. If I have a second I'm considering waiting.

  • We did not find out. DH and I both like the surprise at the birth.

  • I thought about waiting, but I realized that even if I knew the sex of the baby I would still have such an awesome experience when he/she was born, so I thought why not have 2 awesome experiences? One where you find out the sex, and the other where you actually have the baby?

  • For my first I didn't know but because on the 3 u.s that I had everytime she closed her legs and the lady could never told us. My second and third we found out because Im too desperate to wait for birth. I'm having a gir and just found out last week.

  • I found out with both, and I am glad I did, for I got a different sex each time. It helped with prep.

  • We have 5 kids and chose not to find out with any of them.  We both liked having the surprise at the end.
