We are very big planners and will definatly find out. On an unrelated topic... why must the commercial people take us for fools? They show this super skinny woman using her steam vac just smiling away like she got the nobel peace prize. Thanks to my steam vac (and a good dose of litium) i am the happiest woman in the world! I guess im screwed because we have carpet.
I'll be finding out at 16 weeks, I could wait for my 20 week scan but I'm impatient and don't want to lol. I'm finding out purely because I want to know. With my son I found out at 20 weeks and from that day on, he became Max. I liked him having his name before he was born and it will be the same for this one too.
I also hate the one for the screwdriver that ajust to fit anywhere...they show a guy trying to screw a bolt in under a table and its so difficult he appears to lose all function of his hand. No its not the screwdriver your having a stroke call the hospital.
I keep going back and forth over all of this. I would have said before I was pregnant that I wouldn't find out as I reckon it takes away a bit of a surprise. However, we're going to be on a budget and finding out would help us be more organised, especially with clothes. I just think it's one of the few surprises in life and I may regret finding out after the initial excitement of being told boy or girl. I really don't care what I'm having though and I guess we'll just wait and see how we feel when the time comes.
My gut feeling was 'no', but over the weeks we have been thinking that it would make planning a lot easier. Even the newborn white clothes we saw in the shops seemed to be either for girls or boys rather than unisex. So we have some thinking and deciding to do over the next 2 months!
I didn't find out last time, and to be honest I wish I did. I ended up with a emergency section and the way I found out wasnt great.Although this is rare, something to consider! I'd say this- which ever day you find out its a lovely suprise though isnt it! I think we'll find out this time and not tell anyone. Our secret! I won't choose a name until baby is here though xx
