Finding out gender...

So we have decided to find out the gender of the baby because we're going to be getting hand me downs from so many people... what are your reasons for finding out or not finding out?

  • I am a huge planner, and it would totally stress me out if i didn't know and couldnt prepare! I know... Silly. And i have tons of friends who just had little ones, so hand me downs are another reason. And i just want to know :)

  • I always giggle to myself when people say they are finding out because they are a planner!

    I am the most type A, OCD planner, chart maker, shceduler, etc. And we are team green! It was an AMAZING surprise with DS. We got a lot less unnecessary clothes at our shower and literally ALL of the necessities. I planned, had a beautiful nursery and a closet full of cltohes, they were all just gender nuetral. And its perfect because short of pulling that all out I'm read for #2 whatever he/she may be!

    Big Smile me too, plus I am chomping at the bit to by cute clothes, and need to know so I can get started!

  • Well, anatomy scans don't tell the gender, but I'll play Wink 

    Because I can.  And it doesn't involve any EXTRA tests that I wasn't going to have already. 

    If these this wasn't the case, I may reconsider.

  • This may sound strange, but I want to find out because I feel like I will be better able to bond with the baby once it has a name and a sex.

  • I have to plan so i have to know and i don't really like alot of the gender neutral nursery stuff and i see so many cute outfits and i have to know if i am buying the cute little girl clothes  or the cute little boy clothes. And I hate surprises so i want everything ready and done by the time baby is here. and i think my family would go crazy not knowing too lol

  • Oh, another reason is that if it's a boy, DH and I are going to have to have the long/tough circ argument.  Ugh.

    I was wondering if I was the only team green lady that was poking my nose around in this post.

    So basically, minus having a child already, ditto to your whole post! :) 

    I am a huuuuge planner! DH just sits back and enjoys the ride while I plan everything in life and pay the bills and what not. I may be team green but I am planning everything. I'm just planning it GREEN, with a splash of yellow. :P

  • I found out with my first two because I wanted to be prepared with clothes, bedding, names, etc. With this one, I'm not finding out because I have one of each so I have all the stuff anyway, and I really want to have that moment in the delivery room. This could be my last baby (we think we want four, but you never know), so it's now or never!

  • DH and I are going to find out because we wouldn't be able to last that long without knowing... we are nosy! Also, I want to be able to say 'he/she/her' him instead of 'the baby' or LO.

  • I'm not really a control freak or an ultra-planner, or anything like that. We're just excited and want to know :)

  • We will not be finding out, because:

    We love mystery & surprise

    I want to be different than the majority

    I like neutral nurseries better anyway

    I enjoy annoying my family members.

    I call this baby "she" because all babies are girls until proven to be boys.  You know, like all dogs are boys and all cats are girls.

    This! I too am a planner and want to know so I can decorate the nursery, etc. I never even thought about the hand-me-down factor but that is a great bonus!

  • I am just dying to know and I don't think I could wait until the end to find out! We won't be doing a pink or blue nursery anyway, but I just want to know, and I don't really care to be surprised. I also want to be able to say he/she and give it a name.

    I love this!  This is very much me--I'm very type A and OCD and we're going to be Team Green.  Part of this is an exercise in patience for me, but the other part is so that we have gender neutral (mind you, my idea of gender neutral is NOT yellow and green) for future kids.  I don't want to go crazy with pink bedding right now and then have to re-buy all that stuff in a couple years. 

    More than anything though, I'm just excited to preserve the surprise as long as possible.

  • we are finding out because.... BECAUSE I AM IMPATIENT... and somewhat of a control freak.. LOL  hey gotta be honest!
