Hi girls..My big ultrasound is tomorrow morning...and Im kinda going back and forth whether to find out the gender or not..on one hand I think I should because I'd really like to be able to buy clothes for this baby and would love to know what to call it..But on the other hand I feel guilty about it because my husband just can't go..He's got to stay with our son and daughter and my nephews that I do daycare for..there no way they will allow us to take 2 infants and 2 5 yr olds into the appt with us..Should I ask if they can type the gender on the US and put it in an envelope so we can find out together?I know some moms have done this for a gender reveal with their families..But there's also the option of just not finding out..which sounds insane to me right this minute because Im crazy about knowing that kinda thing..LOL..If I am having a boy I'll need all new stuff..but if Im having a girl my purchases will be minimal..WDYT? ahhh
I like the envelope idea. That way not only could you and your DH find out together, but you could still choose to not know. Just don't open it. The temptation would be insane knowing the answer is RIGHT THERE, but at least you would still have the option. If you choose not to find out and leave the appointment and then change your mind you're kinda screwed, lol. Good luck at your appointment either way!
I don't know what you should do, but I was just telling DH yesterday that we have waited this long I almost don't want to find out If we already had a name either way then I wouldn't be finding out, but girls names are super hard for us and I don't want to have to stress about it if we aren't even having a girl LOL Good luck deciding on if you find out or not! My ultrasound is at 10:30 CST today too
