We will be getting another u/s at 20 weeks then I will do a 3d/4d as well to have a DVD =) I hope we don't catch any glimpses of anything!!! Half the time I can't even tell what I am looking at anyways lol
We are having our anatomy scan but they will just shut the screen off when they do the lower body measurements so we wont see anything =) I dont plan on looking right away at the screen either ...just in case!
Team green here.
Only reason I would want to find out is for a reveal party. LOL those look like so much fun. The Dr. writes down the gender and seals it in an envelope and you take it to the bakery. They bake a cake with the middle being either pink or blue and you and your friends and fam all find out at the same time. Sorry for the explanation if you already knew. I just found out about these yesterday and am a little envious of people who get to do them!
Also, I think I mentioned this in another post but it's sooo funny!!
We told my dr. we weren't finding out the gender and he asked, "Ever?!!!" He said he thinks we will need to know by the time it turns 8. Hehehee.
I have had lots of friend do the gender reveal parties they are fun!
Ive had friends do the cake and Ive also had friends who gave the envelope to a family member who then filled a giant box full of either pink or blue balloons and then they open it in front of everyone =)
Another friend did an elaborate "scavenger hunt" and at the end it led to a treasure chest with the gender reveal inside =)
I am team green! We have always done it this way...a tradition for us! I am having an ultrasound around 20 weeks just the anatomy scan. I always tell them to tell us when to look away! And we don't want to know!

I am most likely going to be going to my anatomy/gender scan alone. I plan on finding out but not telling anyone. I may do a reveal thing. But I'm thinking I'm just going to make it a surprise for everyone. But most likely I will tell everyone because I can't keep secrets and I can't not know lol.
Since this is our last pregnancy I want it to be even more special and I think not knowing is going to keep up the excitement for the entire 9 months!
I was always excited to find out the gender with the other 2..and then afterwards it was like..well darn..now I pretty much know everything except what the baby looks like..but even then we already had a good guess from our 4d ultrasound.
I have boxes and boxes of like new brand name clothing for either gender...a crib..rocking chair..high chair..car seats...bouncy chair..jumparoo... I'm all planned out from my first 2 kids LOL. I can just relax this time and enjoy the suspense!
