After reading everyone's updates on their anatomy/gender scan, I'm beginning to feel as though I'm outnumbered. Is anyone else waiting until birth to find out the gender of your baby?

I honestly never have the desire to find out the gender ahead of time, and after our son was born, it didn't even cross my mind to ask if it was a boy or girl until quite a few minutes after he was born. With his pregnancy, I had "nightmares" that that U/S tech slipped up and told us what we were having, when we didn't want to know. While I understand the excitement and practicality in finding out the gender ahead of time, it just isn't something that ever interested me, and I'm feeling outnumbered for sure.

I do think however, that this pregnancy is just different enough from my first, that it may be a girl, but I will wait until the birth day to confirm my hunch. Please tell me that there's at least one other person in our DDC that is waiting?

To all of you mama's who know the gender of your baby, congrats and happy nesting!

Yep another team greener here. We've been team green with all of our kids.

I think there's 5 or 6 others on team green. There's a thread stickied at the top of the board with a list of the different team members. You can post there to be added to the Team Green list

Team green here too!! It's hard but that's ok. Rarely as adults do you get to be completely surprised in a good way.

We are team green. It does feel like a small group. I am also worried about accidentally finding out at ultrasound. We go next Wednesday. I feel like it's a girl and SO thinks its a boy. But that's just cause he only has two boys. I have to admit the further along I get the more I hope it's a girl. Hard to tell if I feel it's a girl or I just want a girl. I was right about gender with my other 3. Think maybe it's on my mind more this time because everyone is talking about it right now.

Team Green all the way! I didn't find out with my son and the payoff was in the OR when my husband got to say "It's a boy!" It makes me tear up just thinking about it!

Yup me! We are definitely in the minority here. I am having so much fun with it though. I love thinking of it is a new baby, instead of thinking about gender specific stuff. It just doesn't seem that important to me. I think about what gender the baby might be a little bit, mostly I though because everyone around me is always talking about it. I'm not planning on buying much stuff and have already got some gender neutral hand-me-downs. I actually prefer the more neutral stuff--i think it is sooo cute! I think us "team green" mommas should keep chatting!
