I realize we are only 12 weeks along, but 20 weeks will be here before we know it! And you know what 20 weeks is for a pregnant family? The chance to find out what the sex of your baby is. Darin and I were all gung-ho on finding out what this little is and now we are having second thoughts. =/ For those of you that didn't follow the blog when I was preggers with Adelyn Grace, we didn't find out if she was a girly or a boyly. It was SO FUN. Calling people after she was born to introduce them to their granddaughter/niece, etc... not many people wait and it was so, so fun!!!
Darin and I thought we might want to try out the knowing-what-sex-your-kid-is until we talked about it yesterday... we're both not sure if we want to know now. Sooooo... I thought I'd ask my bloggers! You know I value your opinion and we'll probably do what we feel led to do.. but I love hearing what you guys have to think! Here are the three different options:
1. Find out what the little is. Pay the $200-250 for the ultrasound that insurance won't cover (stink bomb) Yes, money is an issue for us. Um, I stay home and my Darin is a teacher, remember? Nuff said.
2. Get the ultrasound and have the technician not show us the privates. Look at his/her pretty face and make sure he/she has a heart and legs and all that. =) Have the technician write down the baby's sex and put it in an envelope. We would then open the envelope on Christmas Day so we could still have a fun surprise on a special day. And as I said in option #1, money is an issue for us so we won't be getting many gifts for Christmas.. knowing what the little peanut is inside me would be quite the gift!
3. Wait until birth to have the midwife say, "It's a ____!!!" That was seriously fun.
Okay, let me know what you think! We are seriousy torn!
