I'm already lookin at gender scan clinics for when I'm 16 weeks plus and just found out my hospital has started tellin people the gender at the 20 wk scan which I never got with my LO. I went private as my hospital had a no sexing policy but has changed now
I really really want to stay team yellow as I know I'll be having a c- section so no surprises there
is anyone else planning on not finding out and how do you make yourself keep to it
I found out with LO, I could hardly wait, and straight from the scan I went shoppin for pink clothes and lots of them lol.
I really don't wanna find out cz I want OH to tell me when they pull him/her out!
I am actually more excited about not finding out. What has really helped me was searching the web for adorable gender neutral clothes, nursery themes and other items, and then make a registry online, and then adding my favorites to said list, that way I can think about which one I like best, how I would like to decorate or paint the room.
For me, the most exciting thing is daydreaming about finding out the gender at the birth and physically seeing for myself and unveiling the mystery on my own rather than having a tech tell me, and maybe this is just me, but I really enjoy the limelight of being totally different from everyone else I know. I step out of the box quite often, and do things differently than the rest of the people I know. So far, everyone who has recently had a child or recently conceived had announced on fb the gender of the baby, and to me, I have seen it so often that it's just become boring, the expected, and the norm, and I don't like that, so I'd much rather do something different and announce the gender along with the baby's name, date of birth, weight, and length. To me, that is the perfect scenario that plays in my head
I really want to stay team yellow, but worried I'll start to change my mind nearer the time when I can actually find out! It's harder when DH isn't really keen on having a surprise coz he's so impatient. Although I want to keep as much stuff as possible gender neutral anyway so I can keep things for the future, I keep falling in love with outfits that are for girls and would love to be able to buy some! I keep trying to just put some money away in an account instead so I can buy a load of gender specific things if I want them once little one is here, probably best waiting til then anyway as I'm sure we'll have so many gifts we could easily end up not needing any more pink or blue!
Yeah the only real difference is the tons of pink stuff I bought! I know OH will be sitting next to me during the section, all emotional and I wanna hear it from him, I keep imagining it and I think itl be amazing. I was having little doubts about finding out but 100% not now! xxx
We waited with our first and we'll be waiting again with this one. I am NOT saying that it's not as exciting to find out on an ultrasound, BUT for me and my husband, there was absolutely nothing like finding out by actually seeing your baby in real life It was the most amazing feeling ever. For me, I don't think anything can top that feeling and because of that, we'll be waiting again I still get teary eyed when I think about seeing my son for the very first time and having my husband announce that we had a boy! I was in labor for 2 days and pushed for 4 hours so it was a great ending to a very long, hard labor.
Good luck with waiting I know it can be hard, but I truly think if you are wanting to wait, you really should. You will not regret it one bit!
