We are too! We are also having no problems doing it! I can't wait until that moment where they annouce after all this hard work, what beautiful creature we have made! It will be such an emotional moment and my husband and I can't wait to share it together!! I have decided to only buy what I need for the time being. I'm not buying any bedding or painting. I have a daughter already, so we have the crib etc. I'm going to set up the baby room and pick out boy stuff I want and girl stuff I want. When the baby comes I will buy it! I know from expirience that you don't need much right away anyways. I'm going to have enough cloths for a week or so, but really sleepers and onsies is all they wear right away anyways.

The only thing that I don't like about having a surprise baby, is saying "it's a surprise baby" and people think I mean an unplanned baby. LOL I always have to watch how I word it.

Yes! We are keeping it a suprise too!! My husband and i havnt found it hard either. I think it is so boring when people are like " We are having a boy, his name is going to be william and he will be born on this date via c-section" How un-exciting, there are very few suprises in life. And its weird because i am a very organised person and like to be prepared but no way am i ruining this wonderful suprise!!

I didn't want to know the first time and I dont want to know this time... my partner does though! Will he be able to keep it quiet? My first clue will be if I pick a bizarre girls name and he ok's it.... i'll definitely know it's a boy! ;-)

I just had an ultra sound this morning and we could have found out, but we didn't. There really are no surprises in life and I really want to keep this one. Although I'm dying to find out, I really can't wait till delivery and the doctor says "It's a......!"

Surprise for us again this time around. We didn't find out with our first and I didn't want to know this time either. I can't even describe the feeling when the doctor told us it was a boy. Was the best day of my life. It's also fun to tell people after when he was born. A friend of mine just had a baby, and they knew they were having a boy and told everyone the name. No fun and that's one of the reason's we don't want to know. There are few suprises now a days and it's like knowing what your getting for Christmas it's not as fun if you know what you are getting. I wasn't prepared for the first one and did just fine with the items I had so will just deal with it again. The trouble I'm having is my husband really wants another boy and I want a girl. If we knew already I think it would be harder for him to deal with it. The day it's born, it won't matter if it's a girl or boy because it will be a magical day. I'm so excited can't stand it. Good luck to everyone and Congrats. :)

My hubby & I found out the previous couple times & this time we are going to find out as well. We've found that for us it doesn't take away from the moment & it doesn't make it less special. Rather, it helps to be more prepared instead of just buying all of baby's clothes in a neutral colour. It also makes it easier when we get good deals on clothing during the pregnancy & makes our decision whether to get it or not easier. We choose our baby's name before they were born, but my hubby & I deliberately kept the names to ourselves & didn't tell anyone until after baby was born, then we announced the baby's arrival, name, weight etc... For us even though we knew the baby's gender on the day, the moment of baby's arrival, hearing baby's 1st cry, meeting baby & getting to know & taking care of baby was just as special, filled with so many special moments & memories & lots to give God thanks for. The only difference was that we knew baby's gende
