Thread: Urgent Help - only 1 hour to go!!!!

  1. #1

    Exclamation Urgent Help - only 1 hour to go!!!!

    I have 1 hour left until DH gets home to plead my final plea to find out the gender of our bub tomorrow.

    He is so totally a NO! as he says it will ruin the surprise and then the birth wont be special

    So i need arguments on the PRO side...... as i think i really do want to find out.. this will be our last child

    Please help

    Ohhh noo tough one darl... Well is there anyway you can find out and just not tell him? But here were our pro's when we had our bubs...

    Don't have to buy all yellow!
    Can make it easier to pick out names
    Decorate the nursery according to sex
    And have time to adjust if you have your heart set on a particular sex

    Plus im totally impatient and would NOT have been able to wait LOL

    Deciding the name - why have a 5-month battle over a girl's name when you have a boy?

    Getting the "right" colour clothes washed and ready.

    Coming to terms with the gender - maybe you want a specific one to match the rest of the family.

    Who's giving birth anyway? It's pretty d*mn special to you no matter if you know the gender or not!

    Good luck!

    If you are wanting a particular sex & you bub doesn't turn out to be the colour you were hoping you could be very depressed after the birth... (my SIL used that)

    Otherwise, like the other ladies said clothes are easier & cheaper to buy when you know the colour & you wont be making him run out at the last minute to buy blue or pink.

    lastly, it helps to know if you want to buy nappies in bulk, i.e. coles have a sale at the moment buy 2 for a cheaper price but you really need to know whether it's blue or pink for comfort reasons.

    Hope that helps you

    PMSL - don't you mean to colour-co-ordinate the nappies? DS has blue nappies, I'd have to buy in some pink for a girl. OK, so most are white/cream but there are blue covers and blue nappies and girls would need pink and flowers and fairies and cr*p like that (OK, I have ONE pink and ONE lilac nappy, but I need more than that!)... I want to buy more nappies, can't you tell LOL.

    How about "I'll find out and not tell you so you can have your special birth?" or "How about I give birth without you, that's what I want... so I get the gender now or the birth alone, up to you which you want me to give on."

    But newborn ones are green (unisex)!! Plus, if you go with a different brand, alot of them are unisex these days!

    I wanted to know, but the sonographer wasn't certain!

    Haha yes, newborn are green, I was thinking more along the lines of infant & crawler... I like to be prepared well in advance (when I can afford it).

    I actually agree with your DH. I think it's more exciting to wait to find out after baby is born.

    Ha ha at the same time I'm super curious to find out if you found out

    Well I personally love finding out!!! Makes the journey so nice being able to say she or he rather than baby or it.

    Cant wait to hear what you are having!

    I found out for my daughters benefit, and I can tell you it was just as exciting as when we had a suprise. After all, it's always going to be a suprise regardless of when lyou find out. Good luck xo

    Yay pink palce not long now, fantastic news on being able to find out what bub's is, I told my husband I'm finding out and if he doesn't want to kinow to block his ears, but like me he just as excited to know what's cooking in the bubby womb. Hopefully my scan on the 5th will confirm it's a boy and we'll start to organise the nursery! I'll catch up with you soon!

    I told my DH that I wanted to find out before everyone else did, as I am having an elective c/s this time round because of last birth. So he understood this! phew.

    Cant wait to hear!!!
