So my big appointment is scheduled for today at 1:30 and DH and I still don't know if we want to find out. I don't know what to do! I thought we both wanted to find out but now he says hes not sure. And i think the main reason I wanted to find out was to get my MIL to shut up about it. we didn't find out with DS and she hasn't stopped *****ing about it since and keeps making comments about this one. truthfully I think I want to find out because I have the nursery to actually get ready this time but at the same time I know the baby won't sleep in the nursery for the first 3 months so i have plenty of time to get it ready and sex appropriate after the baby gets here. But a little part of me thinks that I don't want to find out just to spite MIL for bugging me! Aghhhhhh I wish this was an easier decision!
You can always not find out but ask the doctor to write it down. Then, if you change your mind later you will always have the option of finding out. I really wanted a surprise this time around but Chris really wants to find out and he doesn't ask much of me so I'm gonna give him this one, lol.

Good luck today!!
I agree with Lenora, if you are still unsure when you go just ask if they can write it down. That way you can have more time before you decide if you want to now or not.

I agree with the ladies as well, but dont tell MIL that you did it so you can still be spiteful
I agree about having them put it in an envelope if you haven't decided. But if you want to find out, find out! Don't consider your MIL in the choice at all. This is about YOU and what YOU want.
I like to find out, especially if you are doing a gender specific nursery, because who wants to be trying to put a nursery together right after they had baby? I know after the baby is here, I don't want to have to be trying to get the nursery done, even though my babies sleep in my room for about 6 months, I use the nursery for everything else, changing, rocking, etc...
Thanks for all the input gals! Our tech was awesome. She found out the sex, printed the photo out with the actual boy or girl label on it and put it in a sealed envelope! Now lets just see how long it lasts
