Looking forward to: Finding out the gender!!!
Now, before we got pregnant and through out most of my pregnancy so far I was pretty adamant about not finding out the gender. Curt is more practical and has always wanted to find out but I always told him this is the one true surprise left in this world let’s keep it that way….fast forward to 20 some odd weeks later and to our BIG ultrasound where many find out the gender and I’m changing my tune. I don’t know why….we got closer and closer to this appointment and the more excited I became! I really, REALLY want to know! So at lunch we decide that we will have the tech write it down in a sealed envelope. And here it is…..
The envelope that holds the knowledge of if we will be welcoming Baby Girl Aucutt or Baby Boy Aucutt in 4 months….what to do?!
I would love to find out and we can buy clothes for him or her and we can start using the name we chose (just when we are alone). But I also feel like we might as well just wait. Oh the temptation to know! I’m still fairly confident baby is a boy…and even more so after this appointment but we won’t on know until we open that envelope or wait until he or she decides to come out.
I think we may wait and find out on our anniversary which is November 13. Just a few short weeks away! And then we can tell family and friends in a special way around Thanksgiving.
So tell me, did you find out the sex or did you wait and why? I’m torn and also very excited! 🙂
