Team green both times. It took us 6 days after birth to name #1 and 8 days after birth to name #2. We are indecisive.
We found out with DD.
We brought 3 names to the hospital-- my fav, H's fave and our compromise name and made the final decision after she was born.
Good luck to you!

How does that work when you leave the hospital without a name? Do you file an amendment to the birth certificate? Just curious...
They gave us a deadline to come back by. With #1 they hassled us about it but we really weren't ready to decide so they begrudgingly gave us more time. This time they had changed the policy and it was no big deal as long as we came in by tomorrow (date of birth was may 14).
We were team green. We had some girls names, sort of. And a boy name that we really liked my whole pregnancy. We had other boy names too, but didn't really like any of them.
We waited until a couple of hours after DS's birth to announce his name (to our midwives). We called everyone the next morning and announced 'It's a boy! His name is Isaac MiddleName LastName.'
I have no interest in knowing the sex before birth. None.
I'm whatever about having a name set before the birth. If we only agree on one name, okay. If we go with a list, okay. If we have no idea until we see the little face, that's fine, too.
My parents went to the hospital with two girl names for me. They did not know I was a girl until I was born. They asked my sister to pick between the two. She picked well.
I want you. I know I'm a mess, but I want you. I want to see you every morning. I want to make you a snack every night. And, eventually I want to have your little babies and I want to watch you die.
I love you. Maybe I'm an idiot for it, but I always have. Everything good that I try and do I do it because of you. I try and get away but I just keep coming back. And that's because I love you.
Did you find out the sex of your baby or were you team green? We were team green with our 1st and with this baby. DH wanted to find out the sex for our second pregnancy.
Did you announce and finalize a name before birth or after birth or did you wait to meet baby to give him/her a name? No, we don't finalize until we meet the baby. Since we knew we were having another son the second time we did know pretty much that we would use our second favorite boy name for him, but didn't finalize it or a MN until we were in the hospital.
We were team green for DD and didn't share any names prior to her being born. We had 1 boy and 1 girl named picked out.
We'll do the exact same thing this go around. Personally I feel like it takes away some of the excitement to announce everything before baby arrives (sex, name..). I like the 'phone call' announcement to family that baby has arrive, it's a boy/girl!, and the name. :)
We found out DS was a boy and decided on a name a couple of weeks later. We knew for sure that was the name we wanted to use, we never had any doubts.
It would drive me crazy to get to the hospital without a name picked out. I do like the idea of having two names picked out and seeing which one fits best though.
