We are not oging to be finding out because we are not getting an ultrasound. For us, the not finding out the gender is more of a side effect of choosing not to have an ultrasound than a choice in and of itself. If we end up getting an ultrasound because one is indicated for some reason, we will probably go ahead and find out.

We won't be finding out the sex. I won't be having any ultrasounds unless indicated, but even then I don't think we would find out the sex.

We'll be waiting to find out also . That and not telling any names before the baby is born drives our famillies nuts but it's kinda fun and they deal fine. LOL.

I am a hugely obsessive planner. I am a giant name geek. I have a very strong preference for one gender over another. We didn't find out with DS, and won't be finding out with this or any other future pregnancies unless there is a valid medical reason for knowing the gender before birth. (We also don't do any ultrasounds once viability is confirmed ~8 weeks, but we wouldn't find out even if we decided to have a ~20 week u/s or if there were other methods of finding out available to us.)

I have not decided if I want to find out or not. I did know with all my other children and kind of want a surprise with this one. However since DP is having so much trouble accepting the pregnancy a friend suggested that we find out the gender as soon as possible because it might make it more real to him if he knows.

I'm leaning towards having it be a surprise at the birth. I really really want a girl as this will be our last and I know I will be disappointed if I find out its a boy before hand. However, I'm sure once the baby is here I will be thrilled either way.

Also, I read somewhere that women who find out the sex before hand and are disappointed by it have longer labors. I know that sounds really silly and I have no idea how accurate of a study it was so take it with a grain of salt.

All that said, its going to be really hard resisting if we end up having an ultra sound!!

YES. Most definitely!!!
Its a nice surprise half way through the evils of morning sickness and the exhaustion of pregnancy.

DS was a surprise, though I felt he was a boy before he was born so I wasn't surprised, just smug.

This time I want to find out, for the most boring reason in the world. We live in an apartment with limited space and I have saved all of DS's clothes, which is great if we have another boy. If we have a girl I am going to consign all his clothes at the spring sales. The newborn/3 months things are gender neutral so we will keep those.
