Hubs and I are back and forth on this. I don't want to know and he does so right now what we have decided is that I will have the midwife write it down for him and I will give it to him. He will not tell me and he won't tell anyone else. He will do this he has kept things secret so I am not worried about him going back on it.
I don't think I am finding out Friday regardless but he can't go so I control him finding out. I won't keep it from him though. We are not telling the families he knows the gender we agreed to play that we are both in the dark.
He, along with everyone else, doesn't understand why I don't want to find out. Is it so hard to understand I want the surprise?
I also want the surprise! I know it sounds terrible and PROBABLY is not the case at all, but I feel like if I find out early it takes a lot of the fun and anticipation out of the experience and turns into more of a "waiting game" instead.... and I hate waiting... LOL
It's tempting to find out but I want to be suprised. I think there are such few genuine suprises in life now and this one is really special. Plus after all that hard work to here those three words. IT'S A BOY or GIRL!! Amazing.
we really wanted to know the sex of our baby but were unable too at our 21 week scan. Now its really exciting that we dont know. I think people need to be more aware that you might not be able to find out the gender. I wouldnt pay for another scan, the same thing might happen again.
I want a surprise too! Everyone outside our families keeps asking if we know what we are having/ will we find out and always seem surprised when I say a healthy baby is what we want! No reason to need to know - we can find out so much about baby health with screening tests etc it seems like one thing we can leave to nature
I found out with my first two. I felt like last time there was this big build up then it was a bit flat at the end because we knew what was coming? This time I really want the surprise, I think it will be lovely as this is very likely our last baby xx
