I found out at 10 weeks. With IVF it's the one nice test that you can feel good about.
I initially didn't want to tell others but DH blabbed to everyone he met so that was gone pretty quick.
I'm still glad I've know - it's really helped me to bond and get ready, although it does seem a slippery slope on what info you share.
My DH eventually gave up the name to his work colleagues and I hear today he was discussing how engaged my baby was and when we might consider induction at his work 😧
So just be really clear about what you're telling and to who.
I also wouldn't rely on the DD to keep a secret - that's pretty tough.
It's why I've made sure my two year old niece has never heard mention of the bubbas chosen name. She's really bright and would repeat it to Grandma For Sure!!!!

I agree with your DH. This is your baby, your DDs sibling. You want her to know the gender, tell her! It really helped DD bond knowing the gender, she would talk to her little brother (my belly) and she helped pick a lot of baby things for him. It was so much more special for us having her know.
I'm actually shocked that grandparents ask this. How strange.

We found out this time and luckily no one has asked us to keep them out of the loop- DS1 even tells people his sister's name so no surprises here!! OP it's your baby and your family, others don't get a say in it.

Everyone wanted to know with us but we only told family and those at work who'd tell none of our friends and I told my friends at my baby shower. Hubby told a few of his mates as he was so excited same as telling them when I went in for an induction and I wanted no one but family knowing lol men just get so excited

Wwyd? Revealing sex of baby?
It's up to you. We told DD who was 2 and a half but tbh she didn't 'get it.' She called the baby her brother sister. Gender didn't click or matter for her!
ETA - FIL was living with us for most of my pregnancy & he didn't want to know either. He didn't know until the day we had her . We respected his wishes and didn't directly tell him, but also didn't not tell DD - she didn't ruin it.
