I didn't find out with my first and wasn't planning on finding out with my second but the day we had the the 3D scan she had her head turned (was posteria bub) and DH saw I was feeling disappointed because we wanted those pics of her face and she wouldn't face the right way so he suggested finding out the sex so we'd have something to be happy about as the pics were all of the back of her head, lol.
I'd always find out the sex in the future. Definitely didn't regret it at all. But having a "surprise" at the birth with DS wasn't a regret, either. I don't know why anyone would "regret" finding out or not finding out, unless they were disappointed with the sex that was revealed?

I found out both times and didn't regret it at all, it was still super exciting to see what they looked like and see them

Once we knew we couldn't "unknow" and there were many times I wished I still had the surprise at the birth. I didn't regret knowing but a small part of me wished I didn't.

your baby is so much more than just their gender. finding out whether they're male/female is just one little piece of the overall picture. there's still so many other unknowns to look forward to at the birth, looks, eye colour, hair colour, hairy or bald etc. I don't see the gender as an entirely big deal. unless, as a PP pointed out, you found out and were disappointed with the result because you'd been hoping for the opposite.
even so, it's not a big deal. we both were hoping for a girl and are having a boy. finding out early has been great as after the initial shock wore off, I feel like I've been able to really warm to the idea of a little boy and it's helped me bond with bub

I have just given birth to my 5th child and every single time I have fallen pregnant I have said I am not finding out.
But as soon as the sonographer has asked if I wanted to know I have straight away said 'yes'.
I never really regretted finding out until my last baby. After all the complications at birth I now wish I never found out knowing he is my last.
