Since I will be having 2 more ultrasounds this pregnancy due to medical neccesity. I will find out if baby co-operates.

This is probably the one and only time in my life that I'll be truly surprised (everything, from meeting a whole new person to finding out the sex).

So, no, we're not going to find out. Plus, I really think it'll piss off family and friends and that will bring me a small amount of joy as they grumble about having to get gifts that are "green" or "yellow."

I need to know for when I am weeding out DD's clothes. We are in a VERY small house and can't hang onto too much unnecessary stuff...

well, i bought some of both when i was pregnant with ethan (we didn't find out and had only had a girl before). we don't do nurseries, so not much to buy there. i had fun shopping after, though. i bought gap & visa gc's while i was pregnant with him, so i could go crazy after, lol!

this time, i have enough of both gender to get us by for a week or so. i bought some organic gap sleepers/socks/hats that are natural/ gender neutral, and i'm sewing up some outfits in both genders. i can always sell/donate/gift the outfits we don't need. i like girly stuff for girls, so besides a few sleepers, i don't do the gender neutral thing. to me gn = boyish, lol!

I loved all the yellow and green baby clothes. Dd had this really cute sleeper with rainbow-colored stars on it. Babies look adorable in white outfits too!

We want to know as soon as possible! We want to be able to shop for everything we want and need and we've already been asked by my SIL and my Mom to let them know so they can shop too! :-)

I would like to find out. We are all kind of hoping for a girl, even ds. DS (3.5) said "We already have a boy!" So if it turns out to be a boy I think ds would need some time to adjust, because he's really psyched about having a baby sister. Dh and him already refer to the baby as she. Plus I would like to know if I need to buy some girl stuff or be all set with what we have.

All I keep coming back to is a woman in my last DDC who was told she was having a girl. She had pink/girly EVERYTHING. Baby came out a boy. I think I would have such a hard time bonding and would likely mourn for awhile over the baby girl/boy I "lost", kwim? We've always found out before, but I just cannot imagine finding out now.

Dawn, mama to D (3.06) & N (9.07) C (11.09) & Still-in-shock surprise due in Aug!

:

That's the main reason we are not finding out either. I can't imagine them being wrong and having my mind set on having a certain gender and have to deal with that whole issue when I should be bonding with my baby. We don't care which sex we have......but I just don't want to get my mind set on having one or the other prematurely. The other reason is that we didn't find out with our first and I think it gave me that extra strength to push her out in the end because I wanted to know if she was a boy or girl. With no pain meds I try to take any motivation I can find !

I will give you, though, that trying to shop for things that are non-gender specific isn't as fun but the above to issues are too big for me to ignore in my personal situation.
