Not me... generally...
But we've decided to keep the baby's sex a surprise. The decision to do so has really been like a playground see-saw with Zack on one side and me on the other.
Initially, Zack was all about keeping the sex a surprise until delivery, but I was all like, "But people won't know what to get us for the shower!"
Then... Zack was like, "I can't wait to find out what we're having so that we can paint the baby's room and start buying stuff!"... I, at the time, was indifferent and feeling a little under pressure at the fact that we were actually gonna have a baby.
A few weeks after that, I really started feeling that we should keep it a surprise. I talked to Zack about it, and he was indifferent.
We talked about it, and I remembered the argument given by a co-worker who was keeping her baby's sex a surprise.
IF PEOPLE KNOW WHAT YOU'RE HAVING, THEY'LL ALL GET YOU GENDER SPECIFIC CLOTHING AND TOYS, AND YOU WON'T HAVE ANY OF THE THINGS YOU ACTUALLY NEED FOR A BABY. AND... YOU'LL BE SO SUPER EXCITED DURING DELIVERY TO GET YOUR BABY OUT TO FIND OUT WHAT YOU'RE HAVING!
Because the truth is, we want to get gifts we can actually use like bottles, onesies for different stages, and other stuff, and I'll need all the motivation I can get to deal with labor (because, truthfully, I don't even handle cramps very well)
I'm sure I'll purchase plenty of clothes after the baby is born, and even more clothes will be given to us by grandparents and family.
So, If you like surprises... the sex of our kid will definitely be one to enjoy!!!
