its good to see so many of you team Yellow. To be honest i was against it 100% at first, i wanted to do a gender reveal party the whole shin-dig but now im seeing his side of it and how exciting it could be and really thinking of not finding out. not only to my surprise but to see his reaction and all i cant wait!

im also horrible with looking into Wives tales and Chinese calendar predictions. They were correct for my first born, they didnt work for my cousin so i know they are just "tales". But the heartbeat at 8w3d was 167 (girl) , the needle and thread wives tale told me i would have a daughter first then a son and then another girl years ago, Chinese calendar - Girl.... i look into thing wayyy to much Lol

I think the heartbeat concept comes because woman mature faster, so maybe with early ultrasounds it could be a indication. Thats just my thoughts...

I found out with my first son... but after reading all these posts I am considering waiting, too! It must feel incredible to find out at birth. Hard to wait, I get that. I'd be the same way... but imagine the suprise you'd get later. Thats exciting!

I didn't find out with either of mine and it was truly a wonderful experience. I made sure the doctors, nurses and everyone knew to make sure they didn't spill the beans, lol.

My doctor offered to write down the sex and then put it in an envelope so we could decide later whether or not to open it, but I declined because I knew if it was sitting around either I or my husband would open it! 😂

We didnít find out and it was easier than I thought. It was the best thing hearing my husband say itís a boy when he came out. It gave me more motivation during labor too (or thatís my feeling on it since heís my only one lol) because I was anxious to know what he was!

Funny thing was that most people swore we knew the whole time and just didnít want to tell people. I also had dreams that my dr would come into the room and forget that I didnít want to know and say ďheísĒ doing great.

If youíre going to do it, be sure to tell them before anything dealing with that anatomy is discussed lol and remind them each appointment in case they wrote the sex in your records.

20 week scan would probably have been the hardest for me but since I was high risk I had 10+ ultrasounds so it got easier with each one!

Tie breaker baby for us and not finding out! I'm sure we'll get some pushback on it, but I don't care. I have all of the stuff for both, I don't need to prepare. We aren't even telling our parents until 17 weeks, which is going to upset my family. Whatever, I'm excited!

We didn't find out with our first two but hubby wants to this time around. I'm hoping he changes his mind!

I did find out with my first two.
Fast forward 10 years...new relationship.... Amazing relationship ��. We're getting married this summer (lots of excitement happening around here). I really don't want to know this time around.
Months before we were pregnant we had a conversation. He said he wouldn't be able to hold it and he'd have to know.
I explained that this was a new journey and that even though it would be exciting to find out, that I'd love to be surprised at birth. And I explained how special it would be.
He said if it meant that much to me that he'd be fine to wait.
It's going to be hard because already I'm questioning my decision. We have nothing for baby and need everything. The nursery and most all the newborn clothes will have to be very "team yellow". Still, I can't help but imagine the day that we get to meet this little baby and find out if it's a boy or a girl ❤️❤️❤️

We never found out with the 2nd which was nice because we already had a boy and instead of thinking at the 20wk scan oh another boy, seeing his little face when he was born and how cute he was made it so much more special xx
