It's a.......and why we always find out sex before birth.


Another one that's sugar and spice.  Our boy will be the sandwich...two older sisters and two younger sisters. 

I know there are some people who do not like to find out their baby's sex before birth.  I am not those people.  I have no idea why anyone would not want to know. 

Of course there are also people who don't check the mail as soon as it comes.  I am also not those people.  The very second I hear the mail hit the mail slot, I jump up to get it. 

I like to know things and find things out.

Here are a few reasons I love finding out the sex before birth.

I don't like surprises.  Some people like to be surprised, but I don't.

I hate gender neutral clothing.  At least on babies.  In my experience, everyone assumes babies are least my babies who tend to be bald. And, I don't like it when people confuse my girls for boys.  It annoys me.  One of the fun things about having babies is picking out their clothes and dressing them in whatever I want.  It only lasts a short time.  By age 2 or so, all my kids had decided opinions about what they wanted to wear so I like to enjoy it while it lasts.

We can focus on a name better.  It's easier to focus on picking out a name when we know the baby's sex before birth. 

I just want to KNOW.   This is probably the biggest thing.  I like knowing.  I find it agonizing waiting until 20 weeks to find out.  I couldn't imagine waiting even longer.   There is enough uncertainty and hardship in life as it is. What I can know, I like to know. 

I can't think of one good reason NOT to find out.  I mean I wouldn't have an extra ultrasound or pay for a special blood test, but if they are going to do the anatomy ultrasound anyway, and you CAN find out, why not?  I have not heard one compelling reason to wait, and not knowing (when I COULD know) would just drive me crazy.

What about you?  DO you like to find out or do you prefer to wait?
