    We wanted to be surpirsed. We even went so far to tell the midwife and nurses not to tell us when the little one came out. We wanted to find out for ourselves.

    We plan on do the same for the one that we are practicing for right now. I love practice. :D

    Ya we wanted to know cause we wanted to buy the "right" type of clothing and not have to return a bunch of items. I look back at it and wouldn't change it. Infact we found out that the wife is pregnant again and we will be finding out the sex!

    I wanted to know on the 1st one, wife talked me out of it. I also wanted a boy on the first one too but after Cate was born, I couldn't have cared less about the sex. I have two girls now and I am completely happy with it, and no boys in the future either, I'll be getting the old "snip-snip" next month.

    no babies for me yet, but my wife wanted to wait, and I have wanted to find out the sex since I was little. I just think it'll help me bond better/quicker if I know who i'm talking to... IE "hi little baby in mommy's tummy" or "Hi elizabeth" lol something like that

    I want to know when the time comes for this exact reason. Knowing who you're talking to would be nice too.

    we didn't want to find out at all, but after having like 6 or 7 ultrasounds, we figured why not. Its nicer to know for bonding reasons. Now i can call the baby by his name rather then baby. All in all, i'm glad we found out because we bought all boy clothes instead of green and yellow, and i got him some pimpin shoes already too

    Talk about timing on the poll. Just got home from the Doc's office, we are currently just over 6 months. We had to know though, found out at 5 months that it's a boy.

    Life offers very few GOOD surprises. Take them when you can get them, brother.

    As far as knowing the sex of the child, who really cares? You'll love them the same whether they're a boy or a girl. IMHO, and this may piss some of you off, wanting to know so you can paint the room the right color or buy the right clothes is kind of petty. Besides, only the parents benefit from that crap. Do you honestly think a newborn gives a rat's ass whether he or she is in the "appropriate" colored room, wearing the "appropriate" colored clothing, sleeping in a $600 solid oak crib??? NEEDING to know the baby's gender is just a sign of just how impatient we are as a society- we've got instant gratification down to an artform.:deal:

    BTW, if you DO find out the sex ahead of time and name the kid, do you really think the little gaffer is gonna have enough brainpower to understand his or her name? Once again, here's a case of parents doing what makes THEM feel good. What really matters is that the baby recognizes your voice. I used to say "Hello little baby" at Kim's belly when she was prego with both kids, and I have video evidence of Katrina turning towards my voice when I said that phrase within minutes of her being born.

    Just my opinion.

    I did not want/need to know what our baby was going to be, but I knew from day one that my wife would not be able to carry it for that long not knowing what it was. She found out that it was a girl. She told me and my response was that I would believe it when I see it. One week before the due date she found out that her little girl sprouted some junk and was now a boy. She was devestated for about a day. I got comments thrown at me like "I bet you're happy now" or things to that effect by friends/co-workers, but in reality I really couldn't have cared less what it ended up being so long as it was healthy and complete. In a round about kind of way it was probably a good thing for my wife as it gave her something to do (returning baby girl clothes/shopping) for the week before he was extracted.

    I had to know. I don't care what you say, but you do feel more connected to them if you know. As CBBR said, I had a son, then a girl 10 1/2 months later (remember the doctor says wait 6wks.). 3 yrs. later we had another girl. Stacey nor I wanted to know the sex, we had one of each already, but when we went to see the doctor he asked if we wanted to know, after some of my convincing she agreed to find out. Needless to say I am the proud parent of a 6yr. boy, 5yr. girl and 2yr. girl.

    So you had a better "connection" with your unborn children than I did because you knew their gender ahead of time? How presumptious of you........:surepal:

    Sorry for putting it that way Can. I wasn't trying to say that you were not connected with your unborn child the same way that I was. I feel that for me it was better that I find out. I'm not the only one in this thread (maybe not in the same words) to feel this way. I guess that disagreeing with a "Moderator" is out of the question.
