Could you go not finding out what your having?

My husband & I chose not to find out with #2? 5 weeks left can't wait! Anyone else want their buddle of joy to be a surprise?

  • Didn't know I was having a boy until the doctor doing my emergency c-section announced "It's a boy!"

  • My first 2 kids were surprises. I had hunches both times, which turned out to be correct. It really didn't drive me crazy. Drove all my friends and relatives crazy, but oh well. Found out with #3 because DD wanted a sister and DS wanted a brother and someone was going to be disappointed and we figured the longer they had to adjust, the better.

  • We waited and were pleasantly surprised. I don't think I'd do it again though. Planning things would be so much easier.

  • nope....i wish i could pee on the stick and it could tell me i was pregnant AND the sex lol. i'm not a person who likes suprises. my friend is pregnant with her second kid and she didn't find out the sex for either one. and even THAT gets me....and it's not even my kid lol!

  • I would have liked to know with my pregnancies, but you have to get ultrasounds & I've never done those.
    So surprises for us!

  • I think it would be fun for it to be a surprise but I know I couldn't wait-I am waaay to impatient ( I still peak at christmas presents) Besides I am such a planner that I would want to have the nursery done and be able to shop for baby before baby comes. Besides after my first I had no inclination to go shopping with a newborn!!
