I found out with my first 2, I was convinced my first was a girl but he was a boy. With my second I had the exact same pregnancy so I was shocked when the U/S tech announced girl. I am so glad we found out because I am a serious A type planner and would have been a mess if I didn't know Claire was a girl in advance. I am currently pregnant with # 3 and we can find out in 5 weeks. Everyone keeps telling me to hold out for the surprise but I keep waffling.... I keep picturing a boy but I have a horrible track record so far.Mom to Jack Louis, Claire Bonnie and baby BOY due Christmas Day
He will be either Max ,Ben, Ryan or Patrick

No babies yet for me but I won't be finding out when the time comes. OH and I discussed it and the excitement and anticipation of waiting till birth to find out if you have a son or daughter is what we want. A friend recently had a team yellow baby (which turned out to be blue), and throughout her pregnancy we were making guesses as to the gender. This made me decide to stay team yellow, it something I really look forward to

We found out with the first and I'm glad we did because early motherhood held enough "surprises" that knowing it was a boy eliminated one big stressful surprise for me. With the second we didn't find out and I'm glad we didn't. I already knew what being a mom and having a newborn was like so I wasn't stressing about it, which meant it was fun keeping some mystery in the pregnancy. Now I'm pregnant with our third and we won't be finding out again for the same reason. I want to be surprised since most of the other stuff is going to seem a little routine!

#1- We found out, but didn't tell anyone. We had a boy.
#2- We found out, another boy.
#3- We found out, but then I wished I hadn't. Another boy, and all I got from people was that side-cocked head, with a look of pity, and it made me so upset! We were having a healthy son, and people were making me feel like I should feel sad about it!
Then, an 11 week miscarriage, followed a year later by a devastating 18 week loss (which was capped off with the fact that it was our first girl).
#4- I was absolutely set against finding out. I did not want looks of pity if it was another boy, I just wanted to make it to the end of my pregnancy and have a healthy baby. Plus I was certain it WAS another boy. I had a girl. Total shocker, and the greatest surprise ever. I was thrilled we hadn't found out in advance.
#5- I didn't want to find out because it had been so great being surprised at the end of labour, but all my boy gear was pretty trashed, so financially I decided we should find out so I'd have time to replenish if it was a boy, or just pull out the barely used girl stuff. Another boy. I was a bit bummed out to know in advance, but it did take me a few months to get everything together for him.
I would say, at least once, don't find out. There really is something amazing about that first peek and proclamation after all the hard work of having a baby. It's pretty wonderful.

I am currently 25 weeks pregnant with my first baby and my husband and I found out the gender. I was thinking of waiting but I started to get really anxious about it from about 18 weeks and it progressively got worse and worse up until the 20 week scan. I couldn't imagine feeling like that for the rest of the pregnancy, so we found out.
I was so sure that we were having a boy, but my maternal instincts must be out of whack because it turns out we are having a little girl :-)
We can't wait to meet our little Ana :-)
