I was just wondering what people think about finding out the gender of your baby? I am pregnant with my second, and the all-important ultrasound is coming up and I can’t decide what to do. We found out with our first, and I have no regrets about it, but I feel like maybe it would be fun to let it be a surprise this time. A lot of my friends who are expecting or have recently had babies have waited, and swear that its the best, but then, they never did it the other way either.
So I guess I just wanted to know what others experiences are with this? Has anyone found out the gender with one baby and not another? What did you prefer? Anyone get a WRONG prediction? If you are pregnant now, will you find out?
I’m kind of nervous about not finding out this time (silly as it may be) because of the names. When I was pregnant before, I had a short list of boy’s and girl’s names already picked out that I felt confident about. But as soon as I found out I was having a girl, all the names on the list just felt wrong. So then I had to start from scratch to find the “right” name. So I guess I’m afraid if I don’t find out the gender until baby is born, that same thing will happen again, only this time I won’t have time to find a name that feels right.
Anyway, I know it’s silly, but I just was wondering what everyone’s thoughts are on this.
