Jerky comments from other people-friends, family, and acquaintances alike-are why I didn't want to find out the baby's sex this pregnancy. With my last pregnancy, when we found out we were having our 3rd girl, I was flabbergasted at how many people said things like "oh that's too bad you're having another girl." Yeah, because a healthy baby is such a shame.
The only reason we found out this time, was because my husband begged me to, and we had agreed that if it were another girl, we would just tell people we weren't finding out. Actually, I ended up having an ultrasound at 15 weeks when my OB couldn't find the heartbeat when I was at an appt. by myself, and I was able to see he was a boy. If he had been a girl, I may have put my foot down about finding out, because although he never actually said anything negative about having another girl the last time around, he was upset, and I didn't want to deal with that again.
We're both in agreement that if/when we have another child, we won't be finding out, which I'm thrilled with.
