Did you find our your kids gender before they were born?
If you plan on having more kids, will you do the same with them?

We found out with Aylie and haven't with any of the other kids.

I dunno, since we have 2 girls and now a boy I *might* leave the 4th a surprise but we're pretty confident we're finished having kids and we felt that way right after we got our BFP LoL. Right now we're talking about him getting a vasectomy next Spring but we're not sure We know we want no more than 4 though

I couldn't find out with Alyssa (hospital wouldn't tell us), but I did with Rylan. If I was to have another, I would probably find out.

Did you find our your kids gender before they were born? yes we've found out with both of them. Although with Will we almost didn't because he was sound a sleep with his legs together. The u/s tech was super patient and just kept poking at him and finally after 20 min or so he finally woke up enough to move his legs. I wouldn't ever pay extra just to find out the gender but if they can find out during the routine u/s then it is nice
If you plan on having more kids, will you do the same with them? Yes we plan to find out again. I enjoy knowing and choosing just one name and being able to call the baby by name.

So far we are on three and each time we have found out the gender

If you plan on having more kids, will you do the same with them? To echo a lot more people than i thought "Now that we have a boy" I'd like the next baby to be a suprise. We have talked about it. Most of our new born clothing is gender neutral and we would have most of the wardrobe for either gender and there would be far less planning. The one hang up is DH and I have a hard time choosing a name.

I personally think that when others don't know the gender or the name that it makes people much more excited about the birth.

We found out with both of our kids! I think if someday we decide to have our 3rd it will definetly be a surprise and our tie breaker since we have one of each. I also really want to have a water birth in a hospital because I know I can give birth without an epidural since I did not have one with my son.

I give soo much praise to mommies who wait till birth because it seems like the ultimate surprise to wait! I have a friend in real life who had a surprise with her son and now she is due in July and this baby is a surprise too! I am soo darn excited for them!

Did you find our your kids gender before they were born? Nope, we did not find out with Hudson , and have not found out with our current baby. We actually had an easier time than I thought we would. I think it bothers other people, like my mother though.
If you plan on having more kids, will you do the same with them?
I do not think we woud ever find out, unless mayber there were multiples, in order to ease name selection. All our nusery and newborn stuff is gender neutral and it is nice to be surprized.
