  • Yes. I don't like surprises and like being prepared.

  • I love surprises, I love tradition, I love the idea that good things come to those that wait, I loved calling with the news, I loved it all and waiting made it even more special the day I gave birth.

    I didnt peek all 3 times.

  • btw... I guarantee I was as prepared as the next woman... my child did not go with out because I chose to wait.

  • I wanted to know with all 5 of my pregnancies. I don't think I could have dealt with buying neautral everything. I could see where that would be the best surprise ever though.

  • There was no way I would go without knowing. I didn't want a bunch of yellow/neutral stuff... I wanted to be able to buy cute boy stuff or cute girl stuff too! Of course... my ex's family was paranoid that the ultrasound was always wrong (even though I KNEW it was a boy and it was super obvious in the pictures!) so we ended up with all kinds of neutral s*** anyway!

  • I did with my son. I am also going to find out wih this one as well. My reasoning's easier to prepare for baby.......for me anyways!!!!

  • Yes, I did both times. I couldn't stand the suspense, lol.
    I have admiration for people who can hold out for the surprise though!

  • We didn't find out with either! My dh loved going out into the waiting room and telling everyone what we had! I love watching that part of our video of the kids too. We bought everything neutral so we could use everything for both. And I loved being able to go shopping after having the kids to fill their closets!! I also loved when my grandma was trying to bribe my ob into telling her what we were having... :)
