What kind of reactions do you get when you tell people you arent finding out?

Most of the friends/family I've told get pretty annoyed. Especially my MIL!

Everyone actually seems proud! A lot of people I know didn't find out and think it's more traditional...
Now when I tell them about cloth diapering it's a completely different story! haha

They don't mind. My sister didn't tell with either of hers and they were annoyed with that (me too!) at first, but now they are used to it. I think too, it helps that I already have one of each and don't need much. My family likes to shop and wanted to know what "colors" to get Now there's not much to buy and I have plenty for both a boy and a girl. They all tell me "Well, you already have one of each so why not a surprise this time!" They understand we wanted to make this one a little different in its own way.

Seems like a 50/50 split, people either thinks its great to wait for the suprise or they are completely annoyed by it (which I don't get, why would it matter to them)!

People seem really confused when we say we're not finding out. It's usually pretty comical. And with the people that were annoyed I said something like "We figure it's one of the only real surprises left, and we're super excited either way"... so they couldn't really say anything after that without sounding like a jerk.

Most have been pretty positive about it! My MIL was a little disappointed for buying clothes purposes... But it's our life, not hers.

Everyone is okay with it. We did it last time and I don't remember if anyone was annoyed or not. If anyone was, it would have been my younger sister.
