debating finding out gender

We are still very much debating finding out the gender of this babe. Neither of us really care. We found out for the second what the gender was, but not the other two. It made the pregnancy different for me, for sure, calling it "baby boy" or "little brother" instead of "baby." But it was such a wonderful, wonderful surprise waiting until the baby was born and hearing DH yell "It's a girl!!" (because both ended up being girls) I am so so so WANT a boy, so I fear I'd be disappointed if it was a girl.

Re: debating finding out gender

I am too impatient to wait until baby is born lol. I like as much preparation as possible.

I say wait! The surprise is like no other experience.

We waited with our first, then had a loss so we (I) wanted to know with our rainbow baby to give me an extra sense of connection. If we get pregnant again, we will wait.

I fear having the ultrasound tech be wrong and thinking it's one and getting the other. I'd rather just know for sure when baby is born.

THIS happened to a friend of mine! The tech told them she was 100% certain it was a girl. 5 months later, Timothy was born! And they did a pink nursery and pink clothes! That would be so... terrible!
