My husband didn't want to know when we had our first, but I convinced him that it's better to know. I knew that if we had a girl (which we did) we'd both want a lot of pink clothes and things for her, we wouldn't want her in green and yellow for months. He agreed, so we found out. We agreed that if we had a girl and a boy we'd let the third baby be a surprise since we'd already have everything we needed for each gender. But, now that we're having our third baby he convinced me to find out, even though I was really excited for a surprise. (My pregnancy symptoms made it pretty obvious I was having another girl though!) He knew that even though I had a really cute gender neutral nursery picked out, that I'd want to paint it pink immediately if we had a girl. So even though I didn't want to know I found out. And he was right. We're having another girl and I definitely want everything pink and girly!People are very divided on this issue, but my opinion is that finding out makes everything (from shopping to picking out names) so much easier. There will still be plenty of surprises and meeting your baby will be just as special if you know the gender beforehand.
