Finding out the sex
 
Did you want to find out the sex?

Will you or will you leave it up for surprise?

If you did find out, did you refer to baby by a chosen name or still by baby/nickname?

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.

Did you want to find out the sex? Part of me did and part of me didn't.

Will you or will you leave it up for surprise? In the past, we found out for 2 and didn't find out for 2. This time we chose to find out again. Not that it was a surprise.

If you did find out, did you refer to baby by a chosen name or still by baby/nickname? We used Snowflake until we had the ultrasound. I still use it sometimes.

We found out! I'm glad we did. I HAD to know!!!!! :)

Next time around, I think I want to find out but privately....have them write it on an envelope and we open it later together!

We didn't find out (I'm due in November).

I'm enjoying not knowing, but I think next time we'll find out. Try it both ways, you know?

We didn't find out. Its been harder than I expected it to be. Its fun, but kinda weird to not know.

We don't really have a nickname. We either say "the baby" or occasionally we'll use he or she depending on our moods :lol:

DBF really wants to know, but I don't! Hopefully he'll let me keep it a secret!

We found out! We were all dying to know. I'm really glad too because it's let me really bond with this little guy. And my son has been preparing for his baby brother.

Even though we have had a name picked out I still call him 'baby'.
