if I want to know the sex of the baby. I have posted about this before earlier in November. Thought I would of made my mind up by now but apparently I have not. I have an U/S day after Christmas and will have the option to find out (if they can see it) what the sex is. My SO still wants to know but I am still very undecided. Sometimes I want to know and sometimes I don't. Did finding out help you to bond with the baby more before it was born? I am not at all "bonded" or excited yet so this may be the trick.. I dunno.



Also, had my blood work don last Wednesday. If something was wrong would they call and tell me or wait a month for my next visit? I have no clue what their policy is and they didn't tell me anything.

Ask them to print the bits picture and write what it is in an envelope.. That way when you are 100% sure you want to know you can read it :-)

If you haven't decided whether or not you want to know, I'd wait it out. :twisted: We waited with number one, and found out early with number 2. I was right both times. I wish we'd have waited to find out with #1 though.

I considered having them put the results in an envelope just in case I decided to find out. I will have to give the envelope to someone that I can trust not to look though because I know my SO will look for sure.

You could always give it to a baker and have a gender reveal party :wink:

I personally like talking to my baby I'm calling my baby its name. like how are you doing this morning Tucker... I hope you're growing Tucker. So, with my other 2 boys I wanted to know for the same reasons. It helps,me feel closer and more connected to my boys from the very beginning. My brother find out he was having a girl and his wife didn't know until Larissa was here. The tech told him after the appointment when she was going to get her normal check up with the ob

I love the idea of a gender reveal party and cake sounds good. I think it would be a great way to get both of our families involved also. Something tells me that its a boy so it would be neat to know if my senses are right or not.
