    My spouse doesn't care either way if we find out or not (he's a really go with the flow kinda guy lol) so the decision is left up to me. I'm pretty sure I want it to be a surprise but I was hoping you all could share your thought pocess either way to your decisions. I still feel as though I'm on the fence!! I have lots of time my 20 week scan isn't until feb 22 nd. Thank you in advance for you input :)

    It has to be what you really want to do.

    I'm finding out because I'm a planner, and I couldn't imagine waiting until the last minute to get everything for the baby. There are some things like strollers, car seats, etc. that you can buy neutral. But I really don't like most gender-neutral clothes. I also want to decorate the nursery.

    But others like the surprise and think it's like opening a Christmas present early. How do you feel about it? If you really don't feel the need to plan in advance, then you should wait.

    I don't really feel the urge to plan and I have both nieces and nephews for tons of hand me downs!!! I think it's cool to hear why other ppl choose what they did. I'm likely going to be team yellow lol but I'm still collecting opinions!

    I am also a planner. We can't wait to find out. We have our gender scan on feb 16. As soon as we find out I will start preparing the nursery. I'm not a fan of the whole gender neutral color scheme. No Green and yellow ducks for me.lol.

    Both my husband and I couldnt wait to find out the sex. To us, it just seems like one of the big milestones in pregnancy, along with your first positive test, and the first kick.

    I also dont like calling the baby it, so finding out had another plus for us. There is always a chance that the scan is "wrong". Ive had a few friends that were expecting girls after their ultrasounds and ended up having boys.
