How many of you ladies out there are pregnant and chose not to find out the sex of baby?

I found out with my son but after two miscarriages I decided I could care less what this baby is I just want it in my arms!! I am 34 weeks pregnant.

  • It's not so much a "choice" when you don't do ultrasounds. So my babies were surprises and I lived with that.

  • I didn't find out for my first. I wanted it to be a surprise. I did find out for my second. My other son has autism and I wanted to prepare him the best i could for the new arrival.

  • I am 26 weeks pregnant with my 3rd child and I have not found out the sex with any of my pregnancies. It is fun reading your body and trying to decided for yourself what the baby will be. I have been correct so far. My two older children are boys. The one I am carrying I feel is a girl. I will see in May!!

    Congratulations and good luck!!

  • I'm 8 weeks and I don't want to know until I am holding the baby in my arms. I like the idea of the surprise. My husband wants to know but I'm not going to let him find out lol.

  • I'm sorry you lost your first two. I couldn't imagine.
    I didn't find out the sex of my baby until the day he was born. It was such a great surprise, and I'll do the same if I have more children.

  • What a wonderful surprise you'll have! My sister waited with all 3 of her children! I am too impatient for that only because I like to be prepared. However, if you have the means to wait until the last minute....well enjoy it. There are so few wonderful surprises in life!

  • My sil are a month apart and I don't think I will be able to wait to find out, however her and my brother are going to wait. Especially since with their 1st one they were having a girl so we had a HUGE baby shower for them and they got EVERYTHING they need and pink and when she had the baby it was a BOY!!! :) so they figured why find out this time we'll make it another surprise. Good Luck!!

  • I think I'm having another boy, this pregnancy is just like the one with my son. The baby we lost at 18 weeks was a little girl and that pregnancy was totally different then this one and the first one!! Sending blessings your way on your arrival!!
