We didn't find out the gender until my son was born, and it was one of the neatest moments of my life when the doctor said, "It's a boy!" So I would really like to experience that again. BUT I must admit I'm a little more tempted this time to find out, simply b/c we already have a ton of boy stuff but no girl clothes and it would be nice to know if I need any. And as far as gender disappointment, I know I will be super excited to have either a boy or a girl and probably a little sad to not have whatever gender the baby isn't...if that makes sense. I always pictured myself with a big family with a few of each gender. I never thought I'd be having baby #2 and having to accept that this may be my last baby, but b/c of secondary fertility issues, it very well may be our last biological child (we were in the adoption process before getting pregnant, and will probably continue in the future, but who knows if it will ever work out). So if this baby is a boy, I'll have to accept that I may never have a daughter. And if it's a girl, I'll have to accept that I may never have another little boy or be able to use all of DS's cute little boy clothes again. So, I guess my point is, I'm not even totally sure which gender I'm rooting for anyway! So team green it is for us

I'm right here on Team Green too! With DS I wanted to know as soon as possible, but this time around I don't have that rabid desire. This might be my last child and I would like to experience that surprise. DBF wants to know because he says it would make preparing easier, and I do agree, but I want to be surprised. I said that if he wants, we can have the tech write down the gender on a piece of paper, but I won't be a happy camper if he goes off and tells his mom or something and it ends up getting back to me ((especially since I already don't like his mom anyways)). If we have a boy, I'm pretty much set on clothes because I have almost everything of Boogie's still, but I don't have anything girlie. I am hoping for a girl so I could have one of each but will be happy with a baby regardless. This pregnancy is the total opposite of the one with DS so I'm reeeeally hoping it's a girl, lol!
Thank you GraysMama for my gorgeous siggy!
I am on team blue but have stayed on team green in a previous pregnancy and it was fabulous and a really awesome feeling.
I wanted to tell you that my sister experienced secondary infertility and had to do IUI to get her third baby. She thus, naturally, didn't expect to have anymore. Imagine her shock the day after Christmas when she realized that her period hadn't come for a while and took a pregnancy test which turned blarring positive right away! Beautiful surprises do happen. In her case she has PCOS and never expected to get pregnant spontaenously b/c it took so much work for her the last time. But it can totally happen!
We are staying team green. DH has his heart set on finding out on birth day and not a second before. I know I'd never be able to keep quiet if I knew and he didn't, so I have to wait too. It's harder than I thought it would be with all the ladies posting their team pink or blue announcements on here, but I'm a fairly patient person, so I know I'll survive being "in the dark" until September.

That is what happened to me with this pregnancy. I used to always freak if there was a slip up, but after my O right before this one was really weak, I decided I couldn't even sustain anything if it did happen, so I didn't worry bout it. Then bam!
We are staying team green. I wanted to find out, then my boyfriend kinda talked me outta it. A surprise in the beginning, why not keep it that way?
