Deciding whether to find out your baby’s gender before the big day is a personal decision that you and your partner should take yourselves.
On the one hand, knowing what you’re expecting does make decorating your baby’s new room a lot easier, and makes it easier for the people you love to buy you baby gifts in pink or blue. On the other, waiting can be exciting, as you can’t be sure what to expect! Many parents choose to wait, and stock up on lemon yellow, white and cream goodies, but just as many simply can’t resist the temptation to know.
There’s no medical reason or hard and fast rule, and if you can resist the temptation to find out, and the questions from your friends and family, then it’s completely fine to wait until his or her birthday to meet your child, and find out his or her gender!
