Genderless

Yet another decision has been made in our house. We are NOT finding out the gender of the baby. I was pretty wishy-washy there for a while but we've finalized and decided that we're up for the challenge (of not finding out) and the surprise that will occur in the delivery room. Even as I type this, I'm dying to know -- but I can be strong, right?

That is so cool... maybe if we get a boy one day... but since we already know this is a girl (90% sure, so there's always room for error)... and I couldn't handle, not knowing... I just have to find out! You have some good moral support in Natalie and Leslie when you're feeling weak though! (and me too... however, I'm just a 'weak one' (o;

That is awesome! I thought about trying that on my third child also but I am not strong enough. I was so ready to get the room all ready and clothes out. That will be so fun though! Good Luck.

RIGHT ON!!! I always get so excitied when someone converts to the "not finding out" side - we never find out wth our bbies and I'm not joking - the surprise is INCREDIBLE. The nurses get all excitied, too - there are so few wonderful surprises in life, you gotta take 'em when you can - STAY STRONG!

Mindy, you're killing me! Maybe you can wait, but I can't! I am so excited to hear what you are having. You are mean to make me wait.

natalie convinced me to wait with #3. i mean, we had one of each (like you), it was really fun. we were both pretty sure it was a boy anyway. turned out we were right, and so very happy with our little dude. :)

So I'm throwing you a genderless shower, huh? Maybe if you're up for surprises, you should try not having an epidural too. Or do a homebirth and have Steven deliver. Okay, I'm just being weird now.

How fun! Let me know if you are able to hold out! Especially with Dr. P* (are you going to him?) and all of the ultrasounds he gives, it only takes one weak moment to give in! But I know you can do it, and it will be such a fun surprise and experience.

I Want to Hear From You!
