TO GENDER REVEAL OR NOT TO GENDER REVEAL

Happy Thursday!
As some of you may know, Timmy and I have chosen not to find out the gender of this little nugget. I desperately want to find out ( I almost asked the doctor last week on my only visit without Tim so far) but am waiting til birth to find out! Timmy led the charge in not wanting to find out so I happily went along with the game plan! At first I really thought it was a boy and then I really thought it was a girl and now I really have NO IDEA! People inundate you with all these theories on what you’re having and why but I don’t believe any of them! Watch this weeks Chapter of I Love My Baby, But I Hate My Pregnancy to see how we are dealing with the suspense!!!
I’d love to know how any of you found out the gender and if any of those myths or old wives tales people told you about how you were carrying, what you were craving, etc. were true!

  1. I am due in September with my first baby and we were hell bent on not finding out either. It is one of the last true “surprises” left and the idea of not knowing AT ALL until the moment you give birth was just cool to me. That was the case until our 20 week ultrasound when the technician would have us turn away at moments and my husband (who had been all about the surprise – more so than me) just blurted out “let’s find out now”…which caught me by surprise. We decided to have the doctor write the sex down for us and seal in an envelope. And that envelope stayed sealed not even 12 hours. We opened it at dinner that night and I have to say – it was still a really awesome surprise. I can honestly say I am now glad I know. I am still keeping my nursery simple and neutral but I find myself feeling close to her. Yep it’s a girl 🙂 Friends have already gotten her clothes. I have been able to add some girl stuff to the registry where I was limited before due to limited gender neutral options. I guess, looking back, I can say that it was an awesome surprise despite finding out earlier than the birth itself. And it was a cool moment between the hubs and I. Opening up this envelope to see a pink bear. I have craved sweets and I have read that is a sign of a girl but other “wise tails” haven’t really added up. Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy! I was sick as a dog my first 4 months and definitely agree that being pregnant isn’t as “glorious” as some might claim – but I can say it’s cool feeling her move 🙂
