We aren't finding out the sex until birth and I'm pretty sure we won't have names picked out before so everything will be a surprise. We have a list for girls names, nothing yet for boys. I think we'll just need to see the baby and see what fits

With my last, we told the gender but kept the name a secret until she was born. I found that people are much less likely to criticize a name or provide input on it after the baby is born and it's official, but they're more than willing to tell you what a bad choice it is when you're still pg. We also just wanted to have something be a surprise at the birth too. It worked out well that way. We'll probably do the same thing this time.

Maybe we'll keep the name a secret. I don't know. People have an idea of what we like for a girl's name but we're not set on a boy's name yet so I suppose we could be evil and keep that a secret. We'll be finding out the sex so I KNOW I won't be able to keep that a secret.

well if its a girl we have no name, so that's a secret even from us...if its a boy we've already told his name! lol

we will be keeping gender a secret for a few weeks so we can reveal at our baby's birthday party but we'll tell before the baby is born!

Think we may keep names a secret, it was hard enough getting my so to agree on anything the last time because so many people like to put in their imput as to what our child should be named :/

The only secret I've kept so far is from my work - I haven't told them I'm preg yet.. and I'm really not sure when I'm going to (its a new job, I'm not ready to break the news yet. However, I believe some people have started to notice as I have been catching them glance at my tummy I am sure the response will be (when I do tell them) "yea.. we already noticed." lol.

With regard to names we picked, sex etc.. no secrets here! I am proud of the names we picked (although my in-laws disagree with the boy name - which I totally don't care about) anndd I'm sure we will be announcing the sex as soon as we know since we're terrible secret keepers and even worse liars. lol.
Love, Christina

I think we might keep the name a secret this time, but I'm not sure. No one gave us a hard time last time about our daughter's name, but I just think it might be fun to keep it as a surprise.

I love the idea about the colored flowers to tell the grandparents!

We will be keeping names secret until birth for the same reasons! I hate people's opinion when it comes to baby's name. They try to come up with certain arguments and all I'm thinking is "Duh!! I tought about all of that before and still chose that name."
