I'm not finding out...reason being I could use some excitement so I want a surprise.  After a miscarriage all I care about is health at the moment so whichever I'm carrying its like a secret no one knows... Kinda special

By the way, I'm 20 weeks...does get a little anxious at times but totally worth the wait

I am a planner to a degree and i want to know so i can register properly and buy gender clothes etc i dont want to be out in january buying clothing bc all i had was white everything. I also wanted my son to be excited and he got the baby sister he asked for

I was thinking along the same line. I find out today, and am a little sad bc there is no surprise anymore :-( However, I'm also a planner, and need to register properly. I also want to stop fighting about names lol

LOL @torybaybee dont blame ya!! Lucky for me there was no fight we had two names picked out for years since after my son was born 4yrs ago so i got lucky in that dept. Plus considering my sons name was supposed to be something different then my husband changed his mind and wanted him named after him he had not much say so this time anyways LOL

Thank you! I never thought about it being January and you would have to drive sound in it to get the color!  We are still talking about it!

Its honestly a personal choice but i find it easier if you know the gender especially in the dead of winter. Farmers almanic is predicting a horrible snowey winter this year...

This may be my last so we decided to leave it a surprise. The only person who knew was my father who heavily implied that it's a girl. I'm thrilled at the idea of getting my girl, but still intending to turn down knowing today at my anatomy scan, just in case. There's nothing wrong with knowing (I did with my first), but I think there's some fun in not knowing as well.

I have never found out. I think it helps me during the pushing phase. We waited about an hour with our first to 'look between the legs', we were just taking in her face, little hands, and little feet.
