    I didn't find out with DS and I'm really glad as I loved being truly surprised. Second time around I will be finding out for lots of reasons; I want to experience the difference in finding out, to prepare just in case of possible gender disappointment, to be more organised, to have a nice half way point to be excited about.

    I was like this is with my second I didn't want to know if I was having another boy, so I didn't find out, I figured this way it would come out I would love it automatically, But it came out a girl so I was stoked.


    this time it didn't bother me so I found out.

    We didn't find out with DD1 but we were both hoping for a girl. We didn't find out with DD2 - I didn't care but DH wanted another girl. We did find out with DS as I had a feeling he was a boy and needed to know if I was pulling out all the pink stuff again. I was a little sad that I wouldn't get to buy anymore cute baby girl clothes and a bit daunted at the thought of a boy after 2 girls but he's the most popular member of the family. I only hope that continues once he hits toddlerhood.

    We paid for 3D scans and found out the gender at 30weeks. No regrets :-)

    Found out with both my boys and didn't regret it at all. It's still a lovely surprise, just half way instead. The birth of your baby is always exciting anyway.

    OP what have you got cooking?!

    Not at all. If I didn't want to know the sex I wouldn't have found out.
    Living country I wanted to know the sex so I could access what I needed colour wise, I didn't want to buy everything in neutral colours.

    I've found out both times (1st at over 30 weeks, 2nd time at around 24 weeks), both times it's been really helpful. I've been able to plan, it's helped me bond better with Bub, and I've picked my names early
    I found that the birth itself was pretty stressful, I wasn't even thinking about the gender (I just wanted to make sure she was ok, it was pretty rough on both of us).

    This time I'm having a c section, and it's my first surgery, so I'll probably be stressed again. Either way I'm glad I know early, I can just focus on the delivery and keep it as low key as possible

    Most people don't think about gender during the birth anyway, whether you found out before or not. It is such an overwhelming moment, you just want to meet your baby and hope for a safe delivery and healthy buba :-)
