It's fun to know the sex of the baby for some people it makes picturing their baby that more real..Just because some people want to know the gender doesn't mean that they don't consider their baby a gift. I want to know my gender and I'm very excited to know doesn't mean ill care for my child any less if its a certain sex. I do think its ridiculous though when people get depressed bc its not what they wanted.. You should be thankful you were able to have a child.. A lot of women can't!
I wanted to know the gender, so I didn't have to call my baby "it". Being able to call her by her name throughout my pregnancy was important for me. I also felt if I knew the gender, I could be more prepared. I do agree though, that some women take it too far. Being depressed for weeks because the baby isnt "what you wanted" is ridiculous to me. Every pregnancy is a blessing and to cry over the gender in a negative way just seems so selfish and stupid. I get the initial shock of finding out the gender, but to keep wishing it was the opposite, is just wrong.
I am excited to find out! But i will be happy either way. Its not the people who want to find out But the ones who are mad about what their baby is. Thats just plain stupid, you got pregnant knowing there was a 50/50 chance for either. Everyone should just feel blessed to be able to carry a baby!:)
Honestly my husband and i want to find out for fun we would be happy either way :)
I just want to be prepared for my baby. I didn't care too much which gender, just needed to know how to decorate.
I think it's fine if your finding out just because you want to know if it's a boy or a girl. I love that my babies not an 'it' anymore. I hate having family say oh you better have a boy/girl if me and hubby don't care as long as babies healthy why should anyone else. I hate feeling bad for the poor babies that just happen to be the wrong gender :( :(
