I'm four months pregnant now and we're just about to have the BIG ultrasound. The one where they can tell you what your baby is going to be. Just like we did with Some Boy, though, we'll be turning away from the screen and waiting it out the full nine months. There are a lot of reasons why we've chosen not to find out the gender of our babies: there are too few surprises in life, we like seeing our friends and family members' guesses based on charts and Chinese calendars and whatnot. One of the biggest reasons for me, though, is that I love gender neutral baby clothes.
I've never been a girly girl, and my fear is that if I find out we're having a girl and announce it, we'll be drowning in fluffy pink and purple bow-laden skirts and dresses. Same with a boy: we don't need a dozen onesies covered in footballs and basketballs. And some of the gender neutral baby clothes I received for Some Boy were absolutely adorable!
