Friends, a very unscientific and impromptu poll for you all...
After putting off making my 18-20 week ultrasound appointment, I finally confirmed an appointment for tomorrow morning. Of course the main purpose of this important ultrasound is to check on baby bean and see if it's happy and healthy, but we all know once health has been confirmed, the fun part is finding out the SEX of baby bean.
For the first time I am contemplating NOT finding out the gender of this baby. I found out with the first two and up until a few days ago was sure I'd find out with this one too. But now I'm not too sure. The thing is, once I find out what the sex is, I feel like I'll have to start planning. A nursery, clothes, names, etc. And I'm not ready to do that. It's not that I'm not excited, I just don't want the "pressure" I'll put on myself of having to figure it all out.
If I don't find out, we'll just go forth with setting up a bassinet in our room and go from there after the baby is born.
So I'd love your feedback/advice/suggestions. Did you find out the sex with all your babies, or did you let it be a surprise? Was it MORE stressful not knowing than you anticipated it would be? For ease of planning would you wish you would have known? Was it as exciting being surprised as everyone told you it would be?
Inquiring minds want to know! Please share and tell me, should I find our or not find out?
