I found out with both my 2 and will be with this one. I can not not know. It would drive me insane and plus I like buying gender stuff and my mum loves buying gender stuff to.
I wouldn't be able to find out and not tell DP if he didn't wanna no. I'm
A shocker secret keeper. I'm struggling not to tell everyone about the pregnancy lol

So i briefly spoke to DH tonight about it. His problem with finding out is that for him, its not going to make any difference what gender it is. And he's right. But it is more for me. To be able to call it by its name and picture myself with 2 little girls or one of each. And yes, im also a control freak :O
DH also said if i found out and he didnt, he would want to know lol
I think im getting there with him

I've loved knowing, and I wasn't convinced I wanted to at first but DH couldn't wait. I feel really bonded to my little man, not to mention it being convenient to know. I think we'll find out with all our bubbas

I got a gender scan at 17 weeks I was so impatient to know! I figure there will be so much excitement at the birth, I wanted a little bit earleir. If both scans were wrong and the boy pops out a girl, it would just be an even more massive suprise! Ha.
I wanted to keep the gender a secret but my partner didn't, so I didn't have much choice but to go with what he wanted. We are keeping the bubs name quiet until the birth however.

We still haven't decided if we will find out tonight BUT...I was speaking to a girlfriend today who found out the sex at 19 weeks and then went for her 36 week scan today and found out it had changed!!!! She is complete shock, I couldn't imagine finding out and preparing myself and then they've got it wrong!! I didn't think that actually happened anymore

i have a scan at 21 weeks and i was told by 20 weeks gestation, it's upto 98% accurate if you want to know the gender.
So if im in that 2% and turns out the prediction was wrong then maye it just wasnt ment to be and i wasnt ment to find out!
I dont think i will find out if dh is still totally against it come 7 weeks time. I think i'd like him in the room and we are both told. Dont think it will be as special if i find out alone.

I don't think anyone regrets not finding out, or finding out.
For me, it was a big surprise at 20 weeks. Half way surprise not full time i really thought it was a girl this time and it took about a week to get over the shock of a second boy (still over the moon but really thought it was a pink one). No question of a boy though, his bits were waving around like a big blue banner ad.

We decided not to find out even though I really, really wanted to but my DP didnt so I respected his wishes because if I'd found out by myself I wouldnt have been able to keep it a secret. Then when I was being prepped for my emergency CS (bub was a micro prem at 24+4) the NICU Dr let it slip while they were waiting for the epidural to set in, she came and asked what we were going to call our little man. I was actually thrilled to have that 5 minute sneak peek because we were already in such a stressful situation. DP didnt hear her but I told him straight away that we were having a boy. We wouldnt have minded if it was a boy or girl but we are over the moon to have our little boy.
