    Default Only hubby finding out the gender?

    Has this worked out for anyone? We didn't find out with our first but have been discussing finding out for number 2. I don't particularly care or want to know but dh really wants to know this time around. So did your partner find out and you didn't or vice versa and did it work? I would hate a slip up or for him to tell someone else before I knew what my own baby was. Thanks ladies

    We were thinking of doing the same, Dh had to know and I wasnt fussed. In the end we both found out. There was no way it would work at our place, dh would of mucked up and he sucks at keeping secrets. I figured if we were going to find out then it would be together at the same time!! Good luck

    I think I would have lasted an hour max before I have in and said just tell me. This time around I said I wasn't fussed but said if hubby wanted to know we could. He felt the same way though so I said if neither of us really wanted to know then we wouldn't.

    Yeah I dont think that would work in our house. DH would end up telling me

    but - whatever works for you ... do it.

    That would be much easier green cheese! He is quite adamant that he wants to know, I organised at the 12 weeks scan for our sonographer to write it down on paper and seal it in an envelope so we can open it at home or when we are ready and she said she will do that for us. I doubt he would tell anyone he even knew it'd just be if he slipped and said he or she. But maybe he wouldn't even enjoy knowing if he can't share it.

    I know someone who did this. He found out - she didn't.

    He kept it a secret the entire pregnancy. Very well done, I thought!

    I guess it depends on how good your OH is at keeping secrets

    I have friends who did this for both their bubs. DH knew (he's a doctor and did their scans! !) And she never knew til they were born. Worked for them.

    This wouldn't work for us. We'd slip up or beg the other person to tell us! Just far too tempting. DP wasn't sold on finding the sex out for DD but we did so now she says that we can't for the next! It would be nice if I could know but not her but I know it wouldn't work because the reason for wanting to know would be to buy things and from the things I bought I guarantee she could guess.

    This would never work for us either. We are terrible at keeping secrets especially when they are super fun things like knowing about bubs gender.
    DF would inevitably go shopping and forget to hide the very pink or very blue things he bought and I would go batty snooping trying to find the answer.
    Best just to decide together if you want to know or not I think.

    I don't understand how it can be fun for one partner to know but not the other. Who do share the excitement with when you find out it's a boy/girl?
