    We did this. My DH wanted to know so he found out when I was out of the room at our 12 week scan. He kept the secret the whole pregnancy.

    Only issue was that we didn't really discuss names as if he was really pressuring for a particular gender I would know.

    As it turns out I was adamant we were having a boy through the whole pregnancy but we ended up with a girl.

    Hehe wouldn't work here. If DH knew I would pretty much keep pushing until an argument broke out lol.

    A guy I worked with did this, he had some near slip ups when discussing names etc but managed the whole pregnancy ok without revealing

    Noooo! Don't do it. If either one of you don't want to know the neither should find out.

    DH wanted to know, he found out at a scan at 29 weeks and I didn't. He couldn't help himself and let it slip within the week lol.

    All it takes is a momentary slip of concentration during a conversation or a pausing glance at something pink and BAM you'll know too!!!

    DH found out for both of our children and I didn't. It worked well and I was glad to find out the gender after labor.

    We always discussed both gender names. And for a while I had convinced my self that DS was a girl by trying to over think things DH had said/done.
