For all you TTCers and Mommies to be - will you find out the gender of your baby while pregnant or wait until the big arrival? I say wait, my husband says he will want to know. We aren't prego yet but had a big chat about it last night. It's a dicussion To Be Continued to say the last. :)

I wanted to know so I could have the room ready, name, etc. but even if you find out, there is a chance they can be wrong ;)

I will definitely find out! I think either way, whether you wait or find out at an ultra sound its still going to be exciting and a surprise! I am way too much a planner to go 9 months without knowing!

Tammy that is my argument! Even if we did find out, it's not 100% for sure.

Back when I was expecting both my boys (they are now 33 and 32 so yes it was back in the dark ages!) the technology was totally different than what it is now. We didn't have the 3-D pics you can get today. To get any kind of photo was a big deal, and i think they were just making photos available in the early 80s, and it was horrendously expensive!  Most of it was by the heart rate, and that definitely isn't reliable as one of my grandsons can prove. The ultrasound techs weren't allowed to talk to you at all, and if you wanted to know the gender you had to wait until they let your doctor know and find out then. It wasn't immediate like now.

 

I absolutely wanted to know for the same reasons as Tammy. I wanted to know for the room setup, the wallpaper (yes that's what we did back then), colours for clothes and of course for the name. Now there are babies weighing in at a pound and a half that survive beautifully, but my second was a preemie coming in at 5 lbs even, and they had the minister come in to ask me if I wanted to babtize him "just in case". He was considered tiny at that time!

 

It's funny to look back on it all now, especially with having 7 grandchildren and going through the pregnancies as a grandma to be instead of a mom to be, with each of them. It's an exciting time in your lives ladies. Enjoy it!! Once it's gone, you don't get the time back and you will find, unequivocaly that once you have children, time flies by in a way that you've never seen before!

 

Best wishes to all of you!!


I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015

I would love to hold off and let it be a surprise, but I'm thinking that the anticipation will get the best of me!

I think waiting to find out is the way to go! I am a labour and delivery nurse and that excitement in the room when you don't know what your are having is sometimes the perfect encouragement to keep going when you feel like you can't!!

I never thought of it like that, that's definitely great inspiration to keep going when you're exhausted and have had enough. I'll keep that in mind!

I never thought of it like that either, but a family friend who is a nurse said the same thing to me not too long ago. I suppose maybe it is worth waiting!
