We find out tomorrow if I'm having a boy or a girl. I admire women who are able to wait until they deliver to learn what they're having. It would probably save us some money! I think it's the nesting instinct that's so strong that demands I know as soon as possible so I can start getting ready for baby's arrival.
This will be our 6th child. I wanted a boy desperately our first time around, and got one. Then during my second pregnancy I longed for a second son, and got a girl. The third time around I wanted a boy again and got another girl. The fourth time around we were determined to have another son and we adopted him! Then for my fifth pregnancy I desperately wanted another baby girl (it had been 5 years since we'd had a baby girl), and got one. (So I'm 3 for 5;). I can honestly say this time that it doesn't matter to either of us which we have. We will be delighted with either another son or another daughter. But I'm still anxious to find out!
What about you? Are you patient enough to wait or do you find out what you're having ahead of time? Does it influence your spending habits?
