Umm, I still prefer to find out before. It makes it easier to go through names and pick one. True, I could change my mind the last minute, but it's easier to at least wade through some of them before hand. Plus, it's cute to see daddy talking to the baby using his/her name. I'm on #4 now, and the only one we opted out of was #3. It was exciting to find out, at delivery, that it was a girl. But at the same time, we knew before hand that it would be.
I found out with my first 2, but not with my 3rd. My first 2 were boys. I thought #3 was a girl. "She" came out with a penis. =) I actually had feelings of guilt from the whole thing for being happy with my beautiful baby boy, but wanting a girl all at the same time. It wrecked havoc with my post baby hormones. I was a mess. It might have been different if I had already had both genders. I wish I would have been surprised with my 1st instead of my 3rd. It would have been a whole lot more fun.
With both kids, we found out through ultrasound. We wouldn't have it any other way. :)
being suprised!!..all 3 of mine were suprises...4 yr old girl and 2 boys one 2yrs and other 3 months
Quoting JessieG978:I love to know what my lil one is so i can call the baby by its name
I love to know what my lil one is so i can call the baby by its name
with my irst two i wanted to be surprised but i would get such bad anxiety about the nursery and baby stuff not being ready that we found out. with this baby we are waiting (i have a boy and a girl so i have everything i need)
I found out through the ultrasound...I was so surprised at being pregnant (because the doctors told me I couldn't have kids) and my boyfriend was deployed,so I already felt like so much was out of my control...I wanted as much information as possible,haha.
We've never found out what any of ours was until birth. I love that! I really like being able to surprise everyone the day of (and include gender in the birth "polls." LOL).
I think waiting for him or her to be born would be way more exciting but I could not wait that long lol I have to know what the gender is lol I was so unpaitent with my ds2 that i went and did a 3d/4d ultrasound just so i didnt have to wait until 19 weeks when my doctor would tell me lol
