We're heavily leaning toward not finding out and waiting for the surprise.  I really feel boy; as does my Aunt and MW who are known for their extreme accuracy in their intuition of predicting genders.  DH says girl but also admits he feels empty when he calls baby our girl name but feels full using our boy's name, hmmm.  We might not have an US though, so that plays a role too ;0)  I know US's aren't pleasant for babe's sound wise and disturbs cell formation and this one has let it be known he hates even the use of the doppler; we feel a need to respect that.  We both kind of suspect twins (have even had 3rd eye visions of having a twin surprise home waterbirth in the past) and to be really honest, I would rather that be a surprise because of the excessive amount of scans that would be done.  My intuition tells me all would be fine.

Of all the lessons I did not learn as a child, or even as an adult; I learn through being, mother to my children. Through love and through pain, we are delivered and blessed!

so i guess i've relented and we will find out the sex, mostly because dh wants to.  Also, as this is likely our last, it would be nice to know sooner rather than later (ie before i have 2 kids to contend with) whether or not i need the attic full of girl clothes i currently have!  So, if it's a boy, then i can clear out and start hunting for boy bargains! if it's a girl, then i can cross a big "to do" off my list!

AiryFairy, I read a wonderful birth story a while back--I think on here--of a surprise triplet home birth.  Mom and midwife had an inkling that there were two, from what I remember, but were totally surprised by the 3rd!  And from what I remember mom was in her 40's....  I'll link it if I can find it.

We will find out. We did with DD 1 as well and for me it strengthens our bond before birth. It just helps us feel even closer to our LO.
