Dh said today why dont we just wait to find out what we are having until the day.. I dont know if I can do that. How will I buy things? All these people that are waiting to give me stuff are just not going to wait on me. I told him if that is what he really wanted then we will wait. But I dont know maybe he will change his mind?

you could always pull a gilmore girls and find out and just not tell him?

I don't think I could wait, for preparation reasons alone!

it really is fun to wait to find out.

People can always give you stuff AFTER the baby is born and you can get a enough gender neutral things to last till you can go shopping.

Yeah, I don't think I could not find out. I hate calling the baby "it," I'd rather say he or she. Maybe since it's my first baby I'm more anxious, but I know I don't have the patience to wait.

I couldn't wait. I enojoy knowing and getting to know him or her and not just "the baby". I get to personal shopping specifically for them. I call them by name and bond with THEM.
If DH didn't want to know, I'd find out and just not tell him.

I don't think I could bring myself to wait. I loved being able to talk about "my son" when I was pregnant and then once we picked a name I'd call him by his name. Plus I like to have everything ready and organized. It's hard to know what I'll need if I don't know what I'm having. If I have a boy I can reuse stuff if it's a girl I'll need stuff which means budgeting in the money to do it and trying to shop wisely over a few months instead of waiting until after the baby is born and having to buy everything right then.

I think if it were me I'd say, "Ok honey, you can just turn your head at the ultrasound! I wanna know!" LOL It's possible for you to know and leave him in the dark. He can't not allow you to know the sex of the baby you're carrying!
