    I've been thinking about it recently and I "think" I don't want to know as I like the idea of finding out when it's born - whether I could go the whole 9 months without changing my mind though is a different matter :rofl:

    Anyone else been giving it thought and made a decision yet?

    We havent really got a reason for wanting to know.

    we've decided not to find out, it would be like unwrapping a christmas present early!! my sister found out and all along we knew she was going to be a girl and her name was going to be Aaliyah so when she was born it was just like oh the baby is here, not like the excitement of finding out if it was a girl or boy, so on that basis we've decided to wait for our lil suprise! i just feel you've gone the whole 9 months gone through all the symptoms and everything that comes with pregnancy so you might as well treat yourself with a suprise at the end!

    I want to find out, mainly cos i want to buy little boy :blue: or little girl :pink: clothes!! I want to buy clothes in advance (for 6 months and above) and you cant really buy unisex outfits after newborn.

    I just think, IMO of course, that i want to be organised. I know you can be organised of course WITHOUT knowing the sex, but me and my partner have discussed it and we thought in our case, it would make sense to find out. We are also planning on having the 4D scan done, so hopefully, no mistakes will be made sexing the flump haha!!

    When you go for your 5 month scan, i dont want to be guessing if i can see 'bits' or not, im just too impatient!!! :hissy:

    :baby:

    We've decided to find out for ourselves but not tell anyone.

    That way we can get all our colourful things ready and everyone will have the surprise!

    We've decided we want to know. For us, it makes much more sense as we can get organised and buy the clothes we want to in the way of colours :) I didnt find out with my first so I left the decision up to OH and he definately wants to know :D

    We are going to find out. Firstly because we want to be able to get the right things in the right colours etc and secondly because there is no way I can wait another 7 months to know, I am far too impatient!

    I am definately finding out, I think the birth itself is surprising enough! I also want to give the baby a name and think it helps bond.... as well as buying all the right colur clothes!! :)

    We haven't discussed it, but I think we probably will find out, if only to narrow down possible names!

    Will also make it easier to buy the first sets of clothes, cos the boy/girl ones are (in my opinion) much cuter than the neutral ones.

    I also don't think I could stand not knowing if it was possible to know - I'd be looking on the scan to see if I could see anything between their legs or not - ha ha

    this is really interesting.

    we'd like to find out as we're pretty impatient and this is all so new and exciting!

    however, a word of warning for those who dont want to find out. I spoke to a friend of mine who has 4 children who says:

    1) the scanning person can easily slip up even if you say you dont want to know. i.e just mention at the end something like "everything is fine with him"

    2) if its a girl, the girly bits are pumped with oestrogen and so bigger than you'd expect and sometimes its really obvious when you're getting your scan done what the baby is. i had always thought that a little boy would've been easier to detect but apparently not!

    I cant wait to buy little boys/girls clothes myself but can complete understand those with enough patience to keep it a suprise

    :)

    My OH and I want to know... We are thinking of not telling anyone else though, just cause they can have the surprise... I want to buy the clothes, pick a name, organize toys... I'm very proactive and I wouldn't be able to wait to find out.
