    I'd tell them to put their big girl pants on a suck it up. It's your pregnancy not theirs.... Tough sh*t!

    I'd find out what you're having. And then tell them it's the opposite gender. And then when baby comes it's a surprise. Oh and also they've bought the wrong stuff. Lol.

    No seriously, why are you worrying? You're the one who is pregnant. Really. If you want to shout gender from the roof go for it. If they don't want to know they can pretend they didn't hear you.

    I would never pressure anyone to find out the sex. As far as I am concerned it is your baby so you and your partners choice whatever you do. I told him after my DS was born that we would be telling people second time around so it is not like I have just sprung it on him either he has known for a while. Bloody old school Dad!
    I should clarify, DH wanted to find out as well so I had to take his feelings into consideration. What tipped me over the edge was the fact that we were so sure it was going to be a girl and DH had started referring to bub as "she" and "her" so I thought it best to find out in case it was a boy...which it was lol!

    I'm looking forward to my surprise next time, though!

    I think it's lovely that they want the excitement of the surprise and want to wait it out. Shows how much they care and are excited about a new grandchild. I would try to honour that if it were me .

    I don't know, I'd be a little upset if I was the OP.

    It is their pregnancy, their baby, their news.

    It should be all about them and celebrating their happiness, excitement and new life...

    I personally prefer not to find out - when my brother did and told me, I was just so happy for them and very excited. It is (and should be) about the parents to be!

    I think we might finally have this issue sorted....
    My mum apologised and said she wanted to find out and I said "what about Dad". Turns out he still didn't want to know. I cracked it.
    I obviously don't live in the same country as them so I can't share much else with them regarding my pregnancy over Skype so this was one thing that we could share with them. I respected their wishes last time, but DH and I feel that this time it should be our choice to share the news with everyone. The thing that upsets me the most is that they WILL find out and as that will be the case I would like to be the one to tell them, not hearing it from someone else.
    I had my DH call my parents and have a chat to them about how much this was upsetting me. Seems to have done the trick, they said they understand and would rather hear it from us instead of someone else.
    As for my sister, I haven't yet spoken to her again so will see what happens if she mentions it again otherwise we will just have the colored balloons in the next skype call once we find out...once it is out too bad!
    I told my parents that my sister made things so difficult last time I wasn't prepared to put up with her crap this time around.
    Thanks for your replies everyone 😃
