Sometimes I wish I could wait until the birth to find out!

She kept rolling around in there and did sort of flash us at one point, so I think we would have found out accidentally anyway

Excellent! I would love to know! Fingers crossed for a wiggly baby, haha!

The thing is I'm curious, but it knowing wouldn't change anything. I don't want to dress the baby in all pink or all blue and we aren't even putting a nursery together for a while because we will be moving 4 months later. So I have no real reason to find out.

DH though has always dreamed about being surprised at birth and it means a lot to him. So since it means more to him to be surprised than it does to me to find out I am going along with it, but our compromise is that we will find out for any subsequent children. Of course, he said, if we accidentally find out he won't be upset so just keeping my fingers crossed haha.

I was too curious With DD1 but like you had no reason to know really. This time I just wanted to know if I needed to wash DD1's old baby clothes or not, and as it happens I do!

We're not doing a nursery either, baby will be with us for 6+ months and then go in with DD1, providing she's sleeping through the night anyway, I don't want her in there if she will wake DD1 up.

sevenofnine i dont feel any either i have anterior placenta and its making things difficult to feel and to find a heartbeat on my home doppler. I'm having a hard time about gender, dh wants to find out and i dont, i go for my ultrasound on tuesday so not much time to talk this out and its almost impossible for one of to know and not the other argh.

for me i just really have no desire to know ahead of time, this is my last baby so i want the surprise

Same!
We (mostly me) wanted to find out so I'd know if we could get rid of my DS's clothes or not. My son hardly used his room so this baby isn't getting a nursery. It'll be in our room and then with DS probably after a year old...
There's a lot of benefits to having the same sex since they can share a room for a long time and share clothes. It'll save us so much money! Lol

I know I'm very happy that it's another little girl, it takes away one of the expenses (If it turns out they're wrong and it's a little boy he's going to be wearing pink for a few days ). Although it's a big age gap so we don't have anything else from DD1s baby days, well apart from her infant carseat but I've heard it wouldn't be safe to use it as it's 5 years old.

Read the manual or the sticker on the side of the seat. All seats are different and expirations can vary.

We don't have a manual for it. I'll see if I can find anything on the actual seat!

Never mind, I found the manual online. Says replace after 5 years!

Ah well, safety first! Most prams I've seen and like come with a carseat within the price.
