    I love the idea of waiting until the baby’s born and the excitement and surprise that comes with it.

    However for me with this pregnancy, I feel like knowing the gender will help me connect with this baby and make it feel more real. And as one who deals with anxiety, I feel like the fewer surprises on delivery day will help me have a smoother more relaxed labor. So when we get the opportunity we plan on finding out the gender.

    Also, @theofania I love your daughter's name and your signature names!
    Aww, thanks!

    I agree with you. Finding out loses so much excitement and all anticipation. And really, there are so many gender neutral options that are seriously cute for the nursery and either girl or boy decor can be added later. Not a big deal. Recently, I was told by a friend that they were having a boy along with the name they had chosen and all there was left was to hear his birth weight, and TBH, those details aren’t a big deal so the excitement was gone.

    My hubby and are the opposite! He wants it to be a surprise, and I want to know. I don't care about nursery colours, clothes, etc... I just feel like it would help me prepare mentally. I don't know what we'll do when the time comes, because we're both very stubborn on the point haha

    We decorated the nursery in a gender neutral theme (rainbow colors!) before we found out at 18 weeks. I liked knowing as it cut the baby name search in half. And we picked the first name around 28 weeks so we were able to refer to her by her name. That made it all more real.

    Either way is obviously fine though! Glad you found a compromise
