How are you holding up with all the gender revelations starting to roll in now? I worried seeing everyone find out the genders would make me crazy and want to cave, but so far I'm still holding up well! My ultrasound won't be until 22 weeks, so just under 6 weeks from now, but my confidence level is still around 95% that I can hold out. But at the same time, I'm Really hoping my dh can come to the u/s with me to make SURE I don't peek lol.

We still haven't officially decided together to not find out, but I have a very strong feeling that we are going to stay team green! I've heard him talk to his family about finding out and he really sounds like he wants to be surprised...
I'm holding out better than I expected. For starters my first u/s won't be until the beginning of July anyway, so I would be so far behind already! I think after that u/s as I get bigger and people IRL ask what I'm having it'll make it harder. I have picked out gender nuetral everything for the big things so that's all fine. I'm just worried about clothes. I really want to buy some really cute boy or girl outifts.
I didn't realize until recently how BADLY I want a boy! I always blamed it on DH but now he thinks it's a girl and is 100% okay with it. I'm still really hoping for a boy!! I think if I found out it was a girl on u/s I would feel disappointed. There is no way I will feel disappointed at birth though!
Thank you Vicki... For the adorable siggy!
I have been looking at ultrasounds lol it is a good thing they suck and there isn't a clear picture of anything. DF is really set on waiting and I am handling it better then I thought I would. Since I am due at the end of the month and dr won't even attempt until 20 weeks I am with Katie since I will be so far behind I think it will be easier.
Katie - have you thought about buying clothes for both genders? In the begining of November or late October I am going to go to Kohls and buy a bag of boy clothes and a bag of girl clothes. Which ever I don't need after the baby is born I will simply return with the reciept. I haven't found much in the lines of gender neutral clothes that I like so I figure that this is a great way to ease the pain of not being able to buy clothes. I figure to that most people will buy clothes for Christmas because what else do you get a 1 month old.
Yeah I've thought about that or doing a shopping bag online. I kinda want to wait though because I'm sure people will want to buy outfits once they find out what we had. I didn't even think about Christmas! That's really true so we don't really need that many outfits. I've already bought several sleepers and even more onesies that are gender nuetral. I'm going to *try* to not buy anymore clothes until after I'm out of the hospital and we've seen all our family. Everybody loves buying clothes!
Thank you Vicki... For the adorable siggy!
I really admire you ladies! I can honestly say that I would just cave as soon as the opportunity presented itself. With Caleb, even if I'd wanted to stay on team green, we would have seen his gender as soon as the wand hit my belly because it was a perfect between-the-legs shot! I don't think there would have been time to turn away. LOL. We all knew BOY before the tech said anything. With this baby, I feel like staying on team green would have been a little less crazy since this pregnancy is flying by so fast, but I really want to know if I can donate Caleb's old baby clothes or not. It's driving me insane with all the stuffed drawers! It's a silly reason to need to find out, but it's a good reason to me!
I guess I am officially team green. The only person who flip flops more than i do on peeking is my DH! I feel really bad that we haven't done anything for baby. What we really need is to buy Beau things so baby can have his stuff. I have everything i need girl or boy as DD was born in Oct and DS in Sept.
I would really like to have Christmas mostly done by Sept 1st. At least for the babies if not my older kids.
The answer is we are waivering A LOT! wE MIGHT PEEK AND NOT TELL ANYONE... notI have a big mouth.
Plus DH and I do not see eye to eye on names and really do I want a knock down drag out fight over girls names if baby is a boy?
