Opinions are very divided on finding out the gender of your unborn child.
This I get. Loud and clear.
About as divided as Sunderland and Newcastle fans are about football.
The popular question of late is what side am I buttering our pregnancy toast on when it comes to finding out our baby’s gender?
Most definitely on the side that “we want to find out the baby’s gender”.
Because we are pragmatists. If we can know, then we want to know.
And that is our decision.
Some people say, “ahhh, don’t you want to be surprised? Hm?”
Well no. I (we) do not.
And what’s more, I really don’t care for surprises when it comes to all things baby, because by the sounds of it we are going to be getting plenty of surprises when it/he/she arrives.
Yes, it is fun to guess the gender. But from where we are sat, we’d much rather know than not.
And for us it is not about buying gender themed wall paper for the nursery. No. We’ve already bought neutral colour paper (Quentin Blake menagerie print if you are interested).
The way we see it is that if the tech is available and good enough to let you know then why not take advantage?
Why not know? At least that is the way we see it. I know many will disagree.
But hey, that’s cool too!
At our 20 week scan we should find out.
I will update on Monday 27th February 2012 with our gender news!
Update: 27/02/2012: it is a GIRL!
We are so very very excited and have received some wonderful messages from our friends.
