When I had my kids, I told the doctors that I definitely wanted to know the sex of my babies if they could tell. But this seems to be a real talking point - should you know the sex of your baby before the baby is born?
I'm glad I knew the sex at 20 weeks. Not only could I plan accordingly with wardrobe and coloring and such, but I could get excited about having a boy, and we could trim back our debate over names to just male names. I always thought that parenting comes with enough surprises, no need to add to that giant heaping.
What about you? If you were having a baby, would you want to know the sex before giving birth?
