Hmmmm... Should we?

One of the most common questions we are getting from family members and friends happens to be:

"Do you know if it's a boy or girl? Are you going to find out?"
So, no we don't know if Blue is a boy or girl yet. Although he/she already has his/her male/female parts! We will be able to find out at our next ultrasound which will be around 20 weeks. B and I have been going back and forth about this question and haven't reached a verdict yet (I think B definitely wants to find out). Both of my sisters are convinced that I need to find out the gender so we can plan better and bond with the baby more. I totally see the point in this but there is a small part of me that is thinking "why?" "Why do we need to find out?" Back in the day people didn't know what they were having until the baby was born!

So... we are bringing this dilemma to you... should we or shouldn't we? Write us your thoughts by posting a comment!


  1. Are you crazy? You should totally find out! Haha. Think of it this way, it's going to be a surprise whether you find out now or find out later. So why wait?! Plus, Alexa wants to know. :-)

  2. Don't listen to her! What's a few extra months? Keep the suspense going!

    Btw, congratulations!

  3. I concur. There's something magical about finding out when it happens, plus we all can start a betting pool on Blue's gender :D

  4. naaaah, you should definitely find out! Then we've got more time to get him/her a really really good gift! Plus, then we won't have to type "he/she/him/her" all the time =) Jen
