Doesn't anyone want a surprise anymore???
I want to know so I can buy things before the baby arrives. Nothing wrong with finding out the gender.
I have a ton of baby clothes for both a boy and girl. I learned the sex of our baby last week and do not want a surpise. I want to be a ble to gather the gender specific clothing and clean and prep it from being in storage. It is difficult enough to do with a toddler around, when am I supposed to do it after the baby is born?
I don't have help from family or friends, as we live to far from anyone we are close to, so it is not like
I would have an extra pair of hands to help with washing clothes, cleaning diapers, or getting the bedding, carseat, and other stuff ready. Days like today where my two year old actually naps, I am able to get the newborn stuff together and get a load on to wash, dry and put away. I have until May to gather and prep the stuff I will need and there is only so much gender neutral stuff I can prepare.
I like knowing the sex of our baby early. I like having the chance to call the baby by their chosen name, rather than by a nickname, and I like thinking about my baby as my son/daughter instead of wondering.
I don't like surprises, unless I know absolutely nothing about it. So I want to know because I can't handle the wait, I'm too impatient.
I didn't want to know, but I knew before the techs did the ultrasound on each one. I actually told them what each baby's sex was before they showed me. With the boys, I had morning sickness four days after the deed, but with the girls I looked awful, had bad skin, greasy hair, my nose looked fat, and that's what prompted me to take a test with the girls. With the boys, I tested on the day I missed my period, but the girls I was two weeks late with each of them before I thought to take a test.
