Aloha Friday

Photobucket

It's Aloha Friday over at An Island Life! Answer my question and make sure you post one on your blog! After that, go relax because today is Friday!!

My question for this week is:

If you have kids, did you find out the gender before they were born or was in a surprise? If you don't have kids, what are you doing this weekend?

I found out with both of mine. I kind of wanted Isabella to be a surprise but hubby just HAD to know. IF he ever comes around and we have another baby, I would want it to be a surprise since I already have one of each and have everything we'll need.

Pin It!

We didn't find out with our first one, or this second baby who is due in November! We decided to be surprised both times. :)

Great question!
We found out the sex of my one little guy. I am too much of a "need to know" type!

Jamie said...

We don't know the gender with this one right now. I just had a friend who found out after two months that it wasn't the gender she was initially told...opps!

I'm catching up on sleep. The last two weekends were filled with road trips so my body is in need of rest :S

Kelli @ RTSM said...

We found out with all three of ours. I am way too much of a planner not to know so that the nursery could be ready and all the clothes could be washed and put up!

I had to find out with both of mine. I wanted a girl so badly this time, I just couldn't help but find out. :)

We found out before they were born and then I freaked out the entire time because...what if they were wrong? It happened to a few of my friends, they were both completely ready for girls and both had boys!

Jenny said...

I found out with my daughter. I knew she was a girl and I was right! I had to know. I don't like mint green and yellow on baby girls, I'm a pink and purple gal.

Michelle said...

I found out with B. I am such a planner and could not handle waiting. I also didn't like settling on yellow/green for everything. I love the blue for boys, pink for girls part. If I had another I would love for it to be a surprise but probably couldn't wait.

Jessie Kaitlin said...

We had to know. HAD to. I mean, I already knew she was a girl :) But I wanted confirmation.

blueviolet said...

The first one I wanted to be a surprise but the second one I knew!

Krystyn said...

We were surprised with both. But, if there is a third, then we will find out:)

Jordan said...

I had to find out with both of mine. I need to plan! LOL.

oh i had to know! but we want to have a suprise gender one day maybe on our last baby. come by and check out my blog some time i think you might like it!

Swoozie said...

We found out ahead of time with both of them. We didn't tell a soul that I was even pregnant til the 3rd month! It was fun doing it that way because then we could say "We're having a baby and it's a ______!"
Gosh, I don't know if I could have handled the suspense. Congrats to anyone that could!

Carole said...

It was a surprise both times. No regrets either. We figured it's one of the few actual surprises you get as an adult. But it sure feels like we were in the minority waiting!

Ave said...

I will read some books!

KimberlyKaye said...

We did not know with our first - he was shy. We found out with the others. I like to plan ahead.

Mighty M said...

YES, I am a "must. know. now." kind of person! :-)

WhisperingWriter said...

Oh yes, I had to find out with both of my kids. I am not a patient person.

Catherine @ The Blonde Diaries said...

No kids so I guess I'll share that I am cleaning my apartment this weekend, scrapbooking, and visiting with a friend coming into town.

I think if/when I do have kids that I am going to wait to find out the gender and let it be a surprise.

Deb said...

I found out with both of mine, but I didn't believe it 100% until they were born. Got very lucky and have one boy and one girl. :)

Jessi said...

We found out with all our kids and were happy we did i am not one for surprises lol

~*~ Melissa ~*~ said...

I found out before hand with both of my boys. I was so disappointed when I found out the second was a boy. I wanted a girl so bad both times. Now I'm done and I never did get my girl lol.

Stacie said...

I wanted to know right away. I didn't want to be surprised.

Adele said...

We found out with our first, but only because the hubbs wanted to. I didn't, and hopefully we won't find out with our 2nd... One time his way, the next time my way... We decided we would just take turns!

karenmed409 said...

never knew on our 4 kids, wanted to be surprised, I did know on all the grandkids which made it easier to plan baby showers. Always a full house on the weekends with grandkids to raise

Baba said...

We liked to be surprised and it didn't matter to us what the sex was.

Jessica said...

I'm preggo right now, due in a month! I was on the fence if I wanted to know but the hubs HAD to know, he's a planner LOL. So we are having a little girl!
And he's working nights this weekend and I'm just relaxing because I'm finally done work!!

Tia said...

I didn't find out with any of my kids. I have three; 2 boys and a girl. She was my last one and I was convinced I was having another boy. What a wonderful surprise when I delivered and we found out it was a baby girl!!! :)

Mellisa said...

I found out I was having 3 boys and told the lady doing the ultrasound that I might cry at the 4th one...if she said it was another boy. I will be ok once I leave here. It was my last chance to have a girl. She said girl you better get your Kleenex cause this girl is going to make you cry a lot over the years!! I don't think that I could have waited to find out with any of them.

kailani said...

Since I'm a planner, I definitely needed to know!

Jennifer Leigh said...

Had to know with both! I could never have the patience to hold out LOL!

Nishant said...

No regrets either. We figured it's one of the few actual surprises you get as an adult.

We didn't find out on the first one as we wanted to be surprised. But we needed to know the sex of the second one as we lived in a two bedroom apartment. We had a son, so if we were having a girl, we need to find another place to live with an aditional bedroom - turns out we were having another boy, so we didn't have to move and they could share a room. YEAH!!

Jenn @ Beautiful Calling said...

We found out with both our littles (one girl, one boy) and I was thrilled to know with both. Chloe and John were both named before they were born and it was sort of neat to 'know' them before they arrived and then 'meet' them. It was also helpful to gather everything, knowing it could be pink or blue...
