Pardon the interruption...

I will be back to the regularly scheduled posts regarding embarrassing moments again...but I have something pressing and I need your opinion!

I've said since before I was pregnant with this child, that I didn't want to find out the sex of the baby. Well, I'm starting to second guess it a little....just a little.

Here are my reasons...

Keep it a surprise! The emotional side of me likes to keep it a surprise. I figure that this is the going to be our last child and my last pregnancy, so it would be nice to do it differently than when I had Avery...just to have 2 different experiences. I'm having a scheduled C-Section, so it would be nice to have at least one thing as a surprise!

-OR-

Find out! The practical side of me really wants to know just so I can plan. I mean...I'll miss garage sale season...my favorite time of the year! If I am having a boy, then I miss out on 2 garage sale opportunities! I miss out on selling my girl's cloths, and I miss out on stocking up on boy stuff!

I've posted a poll on the right hand scroll bar. Please weigh in...and leave comments! I need all the help I can get.

Arghh...oh the decisions!

I think everybody's opinion is going to be based on what THEY did, so you'll have to weigh how *important* it is for you to not be able to buy gender-specific clothes and decor. It was so much fun for us to not find out - we figured there aren't many truly happy surprises in life, and I'll forever remember my surgeon yelling "It's a girl!!" and then holding Isabelle in the air. But you'd be surprised how many people told us we were CRAZY for not wanting to find out the gender...

Ultimately you have to do whatever you will regret the least. Will you regret more not getting good sales or not ever having a surprise baby?

And, I am giving you an award:

I being a non-mom...feel like you should not find out the sex of this baby...be surprised! Like you said you had the experience with Avery of finding out ahead of time...do it differently this time...besides there is always next garage sale season!! :-)
