I'm on my third time team yellow, I love it and wouldn't have it any other way.
Other people seem to think it's a bit odd though when they are keen to find out.

This is our third baby and weíve never found out, and wonít this time either. As for keeping our mind off it, it doesnít even feature to be honest. The baby is what it is, and whether we find out at 20 weeks or 40 itís still the same outcome.

And with how it worked... we just didnít find out then did when it came out!

For all you previous team yellows where did you find the best gender neutral stuff at?? This is my third time being team yellow and yellow is cute and all but it does get bland, I've found a couple cute things at target one black and white with crosses and one all grey burts bees that are cute but EVERYTHING else is yellow or white?? Any help much appreciated!!

All three of our children have been mysteries.
DH wanted to find out with our first, as he was afraid of gender disappointment if she was a girl and thought he would need time to process. I insisted on keeping it a surprise with our first - I really wanted to experience that thrill of finding out at birth that I have heard many speak of, and told him he could decide with the all the others but I needed that motivation of not knowing whether we're having a boy or girl when labour got hard.
He relented, and as soon as we had our anatomynscans I regretted it. Lol. Only temporarily though. That moment at birth was worth the wait, andecen though it was a girl it didn't dampen hubby's elation at all as he had feared.

He chose to carry on not finding out with the others, and it has gotten easier and more exciting each time.

I am a bit tempted to find out this time due to twins, but I think keeping double the mystery and the double the guessing right up to birth will be so exciting

Katie, I buy white stuff and tie dye it! But I do also like the fact that teal and grey are in as gender neutral colours in some places. I had lots of teal grey and white with our son in advance of his birth when he was a mystery. I cant recommend stores though.
But honestly I don't care too much what they wear - most of our clothes have all been hand me downs

Buying things - Iíve only ever bought white vests (onesies) anyway, and then just a few babygros. Plenty of time to buy things when they arrive, and people buy so much as presents itís never been an issue. Also mine mostly dress in hand me downs anyway so they just get what they get!

team yellow experts - you all have so much will power! i was just browsing the other day to see what new things have come out in the last 4 years since our daughter and i was having a hard time finding cute things to be gender neutral, but didnt have any issues finding something for a girl or boy that i found adorable and wanted to buy asap. with that being said the Tie Dye idea is amazing! I love tye dye and making our own clothes doing so and i actually hadnt even thought of that.

it is still pretty hard for me to imagine not finding out but im staying positive about it and looking at all of the experiences that will come with it. I dont think this will be our last child either so i dont think its hurting anything by not finding out. where im from though, people will think we are crazy and old school but its a good thing we dont worry about what others think lol.

we are taking pictures this weekend for our announcement. i had a sign on etsy made that said "Every Hero needs a side kick, Mine arrives November 2018" and then our daughter has a Superman costume to put on, it should be pretty fun.

when times get tough, im going to look to you "Team Yellow'ers" for help!

We will be here.

For me, I tend to lean towards blue items anyway and I think blue is fine for a girl (which I had).
I did my LO's nursery in an animal/nature theme and the walls were already yellow. For her bedding, I got blue ferns and all the rest of textiles are animals and I think that is gender neutral. Her swing was "boy" geared one, but she certainly didn't mind.

For clothes, I have mostly hand-me-downs in both genders, but I did put her in some boy geared clothing at first and "girled it up" with head bows. I had no issues with her in blue or puppy dogs, or trucks, or all that other typical boy clothing.

This time around, we are doing a grey and white theme and will girl it up if this little bean turns out to be another girl once she is born by adding dolls and other typical girl toys.

To the point of buying clothes, I focused more on the season. I had a summer baby so it was easy to find nautical rompers and outfits. I mostly found them at Carters or even old navy and stock piled for the first 3 months. This time around Iíll have a fall baby so Iíll be buying lots of orange and brown outfits. I found that not knowing the gender was harder on some friends and family than us. It never crossed our minds to find out. But some people just couldnít fathom not knowing. It provided much relief and an overall calm pregnancy because we didnít worry much about nursery decorations or overanalyze names.

I wanted to find out as quick as possible with our 1st lol. I liked the idea of teem yellow the 2nd time but we found out by mistake. We were determined with our 3rd not to find out and managed not to. I loved the idea of the surprise. To be honest it was s bit of a let down when the moment came. Things went really quick and intense at the end and I was in a bit of a state of shock. The baby was laid on me and OH kept saying "it's a baby boy. It's a baby boy" I was thinking, okay, yes I know it's a baby, what were you expecting, a washing machine. It took me ages to click that it was the boy bit that was important, lol. Honestly I was just glad that the baby was out!
