Here's an interesting concept someone mentioned to me about NOT finding out.  If you do not find out, you are less likely to get outfits and cute clothes as gifts, and more likely to get actually useful baby items.  I don't know if this is true or not since I'm a first-timer... just a thought.

It's an interesting thought but people still manage to blow lots of cash on useless things for babies! lol  I am still fighting this with family at the holidays/birthdays!  hehehe

My daughter was a surprise, however I found out with this one yesterday..it's a boy! I feel really guilty because I actually kind of wanted another girl and I felt sort of disappointed. I wish I hadn't found out. At the moment of birth it doesn't matter what gender they are, they are just so wonderful. Although now I have a few months to get ready for a son..I've just never been around little boys much so it makes me more nervous. I would have another surprise next time.

I think DH and I have decided to have the U/S tech and/or doctor to write down the gender and seal it in an envelope. Then IF we decide to find out, we can do it on our own terms whenever we want.  No pressure to decide by a certain date (which is less than two weeks away - can't wait to see my little one!).
