    That other poster that posted about going to a different town just to have a scan to find out behind his back is just plain old dodgy!!
    I went to a different town because I live rurally and my town doesn't offer private scans. In the grand scheme of things I really don't think it's that big of a deal but to each their own. My main reason for not telling my husband was that he didn't want to know and if he knew I knew he would have asked me and it would ruin the surprise for him.
    It was a bit dodgey yes...I had a lot of anxiety about the baby's sex stemming from my MIL so this let me enjoy the last few months of my pregnancy once I knew what sex the baby was.

    So lots of different points of view then! As I said I'm not personally considering it, but I found it interesting that my friend didn't think it was a big deal. If I decide I absolutely have to know then I'll tell DH that. But the truth is is although I really want to know, I'm in two minds about it. Having the surprise is really nice too! I'll see what happens at the 20 week scan. Maybe DH will decide he wants to know too

    This would be the best option. You have a right to know, even if your DH doesn't want to. Just be honest about it and tell him you won't spoil it for him. The downside is not being able to buy specific girls or boys stuff or you will give it away.
