I would love to do a surprise with the 3rd but I know I wouldn't be able to. I am to antsy hahaha. I like to have a theme chosen, colors chosen and a name chosen to call baby. I still use a nickname but it's such the planner in me that I don't think I could wait.
I mean, if baby were to not cooperate any time tried, I'd understand. I admire those who can wait!
We had a few in my PR who waited on the surprise and one was twins! I couldn't do that haha.
We found out with the boys and decided not to find out with this one. I sorta like not knowing...
When we found out with the boys we still referred to them as baby or whatever nickname we gave them... (I can't remember with Robbie what we nicknamed him but with Bryce it was Monster). We didn't call the boys by name till we filled out the birth certificate stuff since names weren't in stone till then.
I go back and forth with it. I found out with all three, but didn't technically mean to with #3. When we had our scan, I saw the "money shot" and I knew it was a girl. Knowing withou a doubt that this baby is our last, part of me wants to experience the feeling of finding out the gender at the birth. I think it would be such a surreal moment... but then again I'm Miss Impatient.
