When we where TTC, we where both really adamant that we wouldn't find out the gender of the baby. Neither of us really wanted to know, and it wasn't a big deal, we where happy to wait till we eventually gave birth to find out if we where having a boy or a girl.
But now that we are actually pregnant we are both leaning more to finding out the sex. I just wondered whether you will be finding out the sex or not, and what your reasons are either way?
I voted no. We were planning on doing but the more I thought about the more I dont see the need. With LO we didnt and when he was born we went clothes shopping and it was a good reason to get out and about. With this baby if its a boy we wont need anything as I kept everything and if we have a girl then again it will be a good reason to go out shopping. Other than that everything we buy (pushchairs, car seats etc) we are buying in black anyway and will accessorise with colours afterwards.
We want to find out as we don't want to be buying alot of gendar neutral stuff as we don't have the greatest amount of money to spend.
Don't think we will be telling other people tho, that will be our secret.
I will (baby permitting!!) I did with my son and my friend who was pregnant at the same time didn't. Even though I knew I wa havin a boy, I still stuck to creams and whites and my friend did the same. She then had a girl and I got all the things she bought as they weren't "girly" enough! I know I would be the same if I had a girl that I wasn't expecting! If you can prepare yourself, why not? People say it spoils the suprise but I don't see why the suprise would make the birth or your baby anymore special than not having the suprise? That's just my view anyways
We are staying team
We have a lot of pre loved items(both boys and girls) so won't be buying a lot and the big items we were planning on being black anyway.
We will prob just get some gender neutral bits and get the rest when baby arrives
