Have any of you found out the sex of your baby, and kept it from your SO. Or you and your SO found out and told no one else?? How has it worked? Anyone tried and cave?!

My hubby is ADAMANT he does not want to know. And I'm just as stubborn that I DO! He says I can if I don't ruin it for him!!

Please help!!!

I dont think i could. But i tell DH everything! He is my best friend. You can find out and try to keep the secret. Im just a crappy secret keeper from DH...but I did manage to not tell him for 5 weeks that i was preg in order to surprise him on his bday with the big news. But that killed me...and I told all of you...plus my mom n dad.

Yay! This is exactly my same situation. We didn't find out with my son, and it was awesome, but I gotta know this time! My husband doesn't want to know, but said it'd be kinda fun if I knew. He said he'd have fun trying to figure it out. I already had a guess of boy from an u/s at 13 1/2 weeks, so we'll see. My big u/s is next Tuesday!! He'll just have to look away while the tech and I exchange codes or something

If you're going to do it, you have to limit who you tell though. Of course I'll tell you guys, but after that it'll just be my parents and my SIL (cuz she's in this DDC--hi, Steph625!). I don't trust my in-laws to keep a secret at all. Good luck!!! Join me in this insanity!!! Hooray!

I wouldn't be able to keep it a secret and he's not good with secrets. I'd probably slip up and say 'he' or 'she' when talking about the baby.

Got it covered. I'm going to go back and forth and say both so he won't know if I slip up. That was his suggestion with my first pregnancy when HE wanted to know. I made him wait though. It would drive me nuts knowing he knew but I didn't.

That's a good idea to have him leave at the end. Maybe we'll do that too! I find out on Tuesday! Wheeee!!!!

We aren't finding out, but if we were ... I couldn't do it. DH is the only person I feel comfortable talking to in detail about anything pregnancy related, so I know I'd never be able to know and not tell him.

My cousin did this. He knew with all 3 of their kids and she was surprised. How he kept it secret I have no idea!
