Ok - here's my first rant on this board (I'm sure there will be more to come!)
As I mentioned a few weeks ago in my intro post, my DH and I are expecting our first in November. We are pretty sure we would like to find out the gender at our ultrasound in a few weeks, but my MIL is being a real thorn in my side about the whole thing.
She LOUDLY protests to the idea of finding out the gender, by saying (insert exhasperated tone here>) "You can't find out! It's life's BEST surprise!!"
Now, typically I take pride in rebelling against the MILs wishes, but this is really getting to me. The issue is that she's not only my MIL, she's also my NEIGHBOUR. Which means, if we chose to find out, and she doesn't want to know then she won't even be able to come into our house, see the nursery, etc. She wouldn't be able to come to a shower either if other people know. I feel like she would be completely removed from the whole process.
I completely understand that this is our decision, but I really wish she had kept her damn mouth shut in the first place. GRRR
