Team Green: What do you think your having?

And would you let DH and others know what your having and not find out?

I am considering doing the balloon surprise for Christmas for DH and the family. I really DON'T want to find out. Life only has a few surprises and I want this one.

Should I let them know? We didn't find out with DS.

Re: Team Green: What do you think your having?

we had friends where the husband found out but not the wife. If you talked to him about their future at all he would let it slip in very subtle ways, like you had to be really looking for it. But both DS and i thought he gave it away and we both thought the same gender, which the baby was. His wife claims she didn't know, but i don't know if that was just because she wanted to not know...All that to say, i think if you let others know, you have a MUCH higher chance of someone accidentally slipping.

I honestly think its a boy only because I feel so much different than before. Actually better and that's with being older and with two kids underfoot. But aside from that no gut instinct. I didn't feel anything either way with the girls either. My mom asked if she could know but I figure of anyone knows it would be DH! I think the whole fun of team green is not having anyone know at all.

Hmmm... It might be physically impossible for one of us to know and not tell the other! About almost anything, LOL...

I have NO clue, ZERO intuition... although b/c we aren't finding out (and buying gender neutral clothes), I find myself picturing our baby as either a really butch girl or a really femme boy.

My only intuition comes from one dream I've had (boy) and that the heartbeat is typically around 145 (boy)... other than that, no feeling either way.

I do not think it'd be possible to let hubby or even anyone else know and NOT have it slip somewhere in the next 20 weeks.

Re: Team Green: What do you think your having?

we would definitely slip!

I think I'm having a boy because I could care less about dairy, and with my 2 girls it was ALL I wanted!! With my DS, I also could care less about dairy.

So...we'll see....still trying to make up my mind about whether or not to be surprised at the end! Trying to stick to my original plan, but it's hard!!

How many mamas are left that want to be/will be team green by the end? I know one gave in today

I'm team green only until Nov 8th, then hoping baby shows us a good shot!

I was on the fence but the closer I get to the u/s I really don't want to find out. So definitively team green here!

Re: Team Green: What do you think your having?

I jumped ship on team green. We find out on the 30th.

However, I've had a super strong feeling this baby is a girl since day 1.
