Glad to have found this thread. My husband really doesn't want to know and I'm not sure I can wait. Glad to see everyone who has waited was happy they did.

If you want one or the other then finding out early is a good idea in case you feel any disappointment you can deal with it before the LO is born
my husband wants a girl and had gender disappointment last time. But we think that having a newborn there will outwiegh the disapointment

I am due any day with number 5 and it's the first time we haven't found out gender. There are pros and cons. Pros- I love the idea of a surprise. this is our last a d so it's my last opportunity to be surprised.
Cons- names were HARD. we still haven't decided on a middle name for either gender. I haven't been able to buy clothes. this hasn't bothered me much really though. I'll just get some things once baby is here.
As far as bonding goes I don't personally feel a difference.
I also have zero preference for the first time. If I had a preference I would have found out for sure.

I'm trying to be Team Green too!! But DH definitely doesn't want to. He wants to be able to "plan." Which is a laugh because I do all the planning and buying anyway so his only "planning" would be readying his own mind. We already have one of each so to me this baby is a bonus and I don't care which one it is. I don't have any idea how I'll fare because I'm so NOSY! I want to know everything all the time! And I like to PLAN. A lot. But...I really want to have one that's a surprise. We already have names picked out for either anyways so that won't be an issue. My only challenge is to get DH onboard!
