Fun Ways To Determine Your Baby’s Gender – Am I Having A Boy or A Girl?

Couple Looking At Ultrasound PhotosFrom the moment I found out that I was expecting with each one of my children, I couldn’t wait until I was able to have ultrasound done during the later half of the second trimester so that I could find out the gender of my baby.  In fact, I have figured out how some couples or moms can make it through their entire pregnancy not knowing the sex on the baby.  I know that I would have a hard time waiting until I delivered to find out the sex of my baby.  Even though I found out the sex of my baby, I was happy with the outcome each time and I couldn’t wait to meet my baby.  I know that finding out the sex of the baby can be very disappointing for some couples or moms because they had their heart set on having a specific gender.

    Great ideas!! Unfortunately with all of our kids, I was so high-risk we ended up finding out fairly early what we were having so I didn’t get to do any cool reveals or announcements, but I guess we were able to plan and we knew what to bring out of storage. I wish I could have #5! LOL

      Thank you for sharing Dee. I found out with all of mine too. With our last one, we teased on facebook and with our family before we finally told everyone we were having a boy.

  3. I really wanted it to be a surprise – but then found out twins and I just HAD to know before they arrived!

      I don’t blame you Leigh so that you could prepare yourself for TWO instead of one. I remember when my mom found out that she was pregnant with twins and discovered they were both girls. It was exciting.
