I've never been brave enough to wait until delivery to find out the gender. I almost want to this time, because it will be our last, but what do you do ahead of time for clothes and things?

We found out last time. I would LOVE to wait for this one, but I just know I cant...lol. DH and I talked about doing it, but again, I want to have the room done and everything and I do not want to go yellow and green

We have found out with our other three (almost didn't with our oldest because he didn't cooperate) We talked about not finding out this time but I don't want to have to choose 2 names. Now that we have clothes for either gender I wouldn't be super disappointed if the baby wasn't cooperative and we had to wait.

I am going to wait until the birth to find out. I have always found out at the 20 week ultrasound before but this is going to be our last so i thought what the heck. i just think it will be neat to have that suspense and then one last surprise at the end after all that work i have plenty of newborn clothes in all colours, as I've had a girl and a boy before.

I find out as soon as possible. If baby doesn't cooperate the first time, I go another time...even if that means paying out of pocket. I just need to know! I'm so impatient... I can't wait.. lol.

I would LOVE to wait (and wanted to with my last as well) but hubby wants to find out so badly....he said he will keep it a secret but I just can't have him know and me not, you know? So yeah, finding out both times, but I think having it be a surprise is so much better!

We will find out and are excited to know! I love being able to go shopping for the baby once we know what we are having!

We're hoping to be surprised. I was told that other people really like to shop for pink or blue, so finding out the sex ahead of time is a nice thing to do for your shower, but that wasn't terribly convincing.

This, on the other hand, is a really good point:

I hadn't thought about it that way. Maybe we'll revisit the "surprise" plan.
