Trying to Get Pregnant

GTKY: Would you want to know?

Just curious..when you get pregnant do you plan on finding out the sex right away or being surprised at delivery. I was thinking about this the other day because DH says he wants to be surprised. Being the impatient person that I am, I just about fell over when he said that. I couldn't see myself waiting that long. To me knowing the sex of your baby is so important. Ofcourse technology has only made this possible in recent years, so I know that women have done it before but I just..couldn't. Lol. What about you? Would you want to know?

Re: GTKY: Would you want to know?

  • I'm not going to find out the sex, we don't have a need too. It'll be a fun surprise and I can plan for a baby without knowing if it has a penis or a vagina.

    "Your truth is different from my truth, and we're both right."

    TTC since March 2013. BFP 4/13/13, blighted ovum discovered 6/6/13, m/c 6/8/13.

    BFP 11/10/13, EDD 7/25/13 - stick little owlet!

  • DW and I (if we're lucky enough to get pregnant) will be waiting until delivery. We have seen people reveal gender and then they are bombarded with pink or blue crap, judgments on name choices, etc.

    We won't force our kid to wear pink or blue, regardless of gender :) 

    TTC our first. Married to, and madly in love with, my beautiful wife. Living with our fur baby and enjoying 19 nieces and nephews. 
    • DW and I have been tracking, preparing, getting medical testing since January 2013.
    • First Cycle: Unmedicated ICI w/ Donor Sperm 08/02/13: BFN
    • Second Cycle: Unmedicated ICI w/ Donor Sperm 09/11/13, 09/13/13, 09/15/13: BFN
    • Third Cycle: Unmedicated ICI w/ Donor Sperm: 10/13/13, 10/15/13, 10/17/13, 10/21/13: BFN
    • January 2014: Sonohysterogram shows excellent lining & tubes have no blockages
    • Fourth Cycle:  Monitored clomid cycle  w/ ICI's at home: 1/24/14 and 1/25/14. Ovulation verified:  BFN
    • Fifth Cycle: 02/2014 Femara 5mg with ovidrel trigger CD14: BFN
    • Taking a few months off to evaluate if we want to keep trying

    It will be our first child so we will find out ASAP! I always said if I had 3, a girl and a boy already, I'd be surprised with the last. My husband wants to be surprised with all our children but I just can't!!! My best friend is 21 weeks pregnant and she's waiting until the birth. I am planning her shower so it's just pink AND blue! She swears it's a boy, but I think it's just because she already has a girl. She was going to do a gender reveal party but I convinced her that if you're going to wait you may as well wait the whole time for a truly bigger reveal!
  • We plan on finding out, just for curiousitys sake.

  • I will be surprised when I get pregnant and I will be surprised at 20 weeks when I find out the sex. I don't think its any less of a surprise if you find out at 20 weeks rather then when the baby is coming.

    Plus, I'm anal and I want to be prepared.

  • If it were up to my DH, we would have waited until delivery to find out. But due to the fact, I am the most impatient person ever, we actually paid to find out early. This next go around, I will also pay to find out early lol. 
  • My DH and I think we want to wait till the baby is born. But who knows! We don't have any kids yet so we don't know for sure how we're going to act/think once we finally get that BFP! :]

    I want to know.  I don't think I'm going to be any more surprised at 40 weeks than I will be at 20 weeks.  But mainly, I have definite plans for a nursery based on sex, so I can't start decorating the nursery until I know!

    Perfect blue nursery for girl

    Boy:

  • We did not find out when we had DD and will not find out with any future children.  We knew from the beginning we wanted a big family so we knew we wanted gender neutral stuff either way.  Might as well reuse anything we can.  It was the best thing ever to hear 'it's a girl' from DH right before I held her.

  • With our first, I decided to let DH have the choice about whether or not we found out the sex, since I felt like I had a certain intimacy with what was going on (obviously), and I wanted him to have something.  He decided he wanted to know - felt like it would just make some things easier.  I was fine with whatever his decision was.

    If we get pg again, who knows.  I guess we'll probably find out since we did the first time?

    You make a very good point! I would not want boatloads of pink or blue crap! 

  • I am too much of a planner not to find out.  We found out with DS and I will with the next one.  A lot of people say, "wait, its a great surprise!"  Well its still a surprise on you 20th week of pregnancy.

  • I always said I would wait, but who am I kidding, I'm a planner! I agree that the surprise is going to be great no matter when it happens.
  • For DS1 I couldn't wait to find out.  20 weeks seemed like forever and I wanted to know NOW.  I thought about going team green for #2 but I know myself and I'll want to find out asap.

  • Since its my fiance first child he wants tonknow the gender and I do too. I want my mom and my son in the room when the gender is revealed and well all have a special moment together. I kentioned maybe doing a gender reveal with everyone and fiance was against it
    IAmPregnant Ticker}
  • DH and I definitely want to know. It's still a "surprise", just a little sooner. IMO, it's easier to prepare and get an idea of who your LO is :
  • We found out the first time because I thought I needed to know. We still bought all of the bigger things in gender neutral patterns and have a lot of gender neutral newborn and 0-3 month clothes. For #2 we both want to be surprised. Plenty of time to personalize things after baby is here, and I think the extended wait to know will be fun!
