This is my opinion so please do not be offended..
August 30th is the day we see baby for the first time.. On ultrasound! Are we going to find out what baby is? NO WAY! I think when everybody finds out what they are having it is B O R I N G!!!!! (remember this is my opinion) And I will tell you why.. 1. I hate to know my presents before I open them, if I do that is the LAST gift I open.. Same goes for babies.. It takes away the excitement of delivery and all that. 2. I have heard it said that you bond better when you know who baby is.. SORRY, if I bonded anymore w/ my baby I would have to eat 'em! :) I don't need to know who baby is to already love them w/ all my heart! 3. I don't like knowing what others are having either.. For example: they find out what gender, tell the name, then 5 months later baby is born. I'm like "I already knew that 5 months ago!" 4. For first time parents it is kind of dumb to get a shower w/ only pink or blue..then what if you have the other later? You have to go and buy that all yourself!! (of course some might never have the other one, but most often you do!).....I have also heard that some want so bad one or the other that when they find out what they are having they almost grieve if it's not the one they want.. When you don't know and baby is born and pops out one or the other you don't even care. How can you grieve when you see that beautiful face for the first time?? With Brandt I was hoping for a girl, I admit, but once he was born I didn't care anymore. I said, I would take a hundred boys like him!! It's kind of funny when the doctors ask if I'm finding out/know and I say nope. They get all excited!! It's more exciting for them too.. :) I have had so many comment and say, "You know you are in the minority?" Yup, I do! There is so few great surprises anymore that I like to keep atleast one of them going on! Anyway, you don't have to agree with me, and that's ok! Have a great day everybody!!
