Would you find out the gender if your husband/SO didn't want to?

Would you still find out the gender if your husband/SO didn't want to?  Would he be okay with it?

Yes I would and I just would not tell him but my DH wanted to know just as much as I did, although we are still second guessing the results so more or less we are getting a surprise anyway

 I would never go behind my hubby's back and do something against his wishes. I guess it would depend on if he just didn't want to know, or if he didn't want either of us to know. I would have to talk to him about it and express my viewpoints. In the end I would go with whatever we mutually agreed upon.

Yep I just wouldn't tell anybody and he would be fine with it because he would know I would bitch the whole time about it.

Well, we tried to not find out once.We had the ultrasound tech put the sex in an envelope. We barely made it out of the room and dh was asking me to open it. He was so excited. It was his idea NOT to find out. LOL!

Yes - with our first baby I wanted to know and he said he didn't, but he didn't mind if I found out.  But he lasted about an hour of me knowing and keeping it from him before he was begging me to tell him!

Yes I couldn't not know. I'm like a kid at xmas! I can't not do it. I have respect for those women who can hold out to find out though.

That sounds like if we tried to do it.

 If it was important to him that neither of us know, I'd respect that and not find out. *I* alone set 99% of pregnancy, labor, and delivery guidelines and he has never ever tried to overstep my womanly boundaries, lol. Something like finding out the gender is not critical to me and I could find room to compromise for him for sure.
