Pregnancy articles & tips
Let Huggies give you a guiding hand through your 9 months of pregnancy with practical tools, articles, tips and advice to help you along your path to motherhood.
I didn't find out for my first pregnancy but will definately be finding out thisd time so i can prepare myself mentally and also for baby. eg will i need new clothes etc.
Trust yourself to make your own decisions!!
Im a first time mum to be and im not finding out purely because i like the idea of a surprise at the end and a friend got told she was having a boy and out came a girl so it was more dramas then. but i hear thats doesnt happen very often,
also one of my friends didnt find out and she had a girl and she said she didnt have to buy anthing pink for the first 3 months cuz of all the pressies in hospital given to her!
good luck with your decision!
my mum and 3 of my sisters didnt have an opinion about me finding out but my other sister was dead set it sould b a suprise and had a full on argument with me about it. i told her that if i found out i just wouldnt tell her. if i have the chance 4 another ultrasound i will definatley find out.
but make sure what ever u do you do it for yourself not 2 make some1 else happy.
Finding out the sex is something thats really only up to you and your partner. I reckon a lot more people find out nowdays than leaving it a surprise so it's really only personal preference.
With my 1st pregnancy we found out what we were having (2 girls), with this pregnancy we have decided to leave it a surprise so we know what it feels like to have that surprise.
We already have white/green/yellow clothes from previous babies so we don't need to buy anything really and if bubs is a boy then we'll go shopping after his born for boys clothes.
You can always find out but not tell anyone like we did previously..
I keep the name a secret so that is the big suprise on the day!
My family didnt want me to find out either but its up to u & ur partner & once i found out they all wanted to know!!
Plus i dont do yellow or green outfits & wanted the room either blue or pink & ready to go for when bubs came home!
I'm so glad i found out with DS! Even had a blue themed baby shower!
Only 32 more sleeps til i can find out the sex of my next bub!! Not that i'm counting!?! LOL
Also helps to get organised...if next bub is a boy i dont need much clothing wise but if its a girl i'm going on a huge shopping spree!!
Definately do what u want..its ur bub & ur decision!!
I'm a 1st time mum, I'm 24 & ever since I was in my teens I knew that I wanted to wait to find out the sex. lol
My partner desperately wanted to know & I was against it, but we compromised. He was allowed to find out, but wasn't allowed to tell a sole. I didn't want some one accidently telling me. smile We have a box that anything he buys goes in, that way I can't see it. My mum & his mum are hanging to know! so it's turned into a bit of fun now, as they try & come up with ways to make hime slip up. lol
I didn't really care about 'being prepared' We are renting so can't paint the room. We have chosen to decorate the room with a baby sesame street theme, the pram (black & gray), cot (wood) and car seat (black) so really it's just about clothing, it's just a colour. I'm not really fussed.
I love suprises & I am actually excited knowing that he knows.
But ultimately it's totally up to you. You could find out & just not tell her that you know. No harm no foul lol
All the best,
This time I really do want to find out as I'm desperate to know if its a boy. But DH and I both agreed before we started to TTC that we would wait so I have to stick to that (but its not going to stop me from looking during the our 20 week scan next week!).
GL with your decision
