So me and my partner have just made a quick decision...we're not going to find out the gender so keeping it a surprise until the big day.

I think it's nice to not know for a change, and to keep it a surprise for both of us and our families. We're going gender neutral colours anyway so not necessary to know the gender. We're not a big fan of pink and blue as everyone does that, although there is nothing wrong with it, it's just a preferred opinion we share. We're moving house in a few weeks so need to save money really, most of the baby stuff will be gifts and reusable things our sisters have used already. I was eager to know if a Boy or Girl but we truly don't mind at all. As the baby is due on my aunties birthday(in heaven now) and the next day is my dad's, so either boy or girl we will be over the moon with. I'm so thankful and happy we've got a healthy growing baby and that everything is working out perfectly. 1 year ago my life was down the drain with depression&loneliness, no friends and just a horrible time with death coming to our family and been a nightmare. 1 year on my life has changed massively forever and I'll always be thankful for managing to pull through of what came over me. 💜💚. I never would have thought I'd have met the love of my life,moved in, and got a healthy baby on the way all within 8 months! It really shows you things DO get better!!

I also kept the gender a surprise 🥰 We decorated the nursery with our wedding colours, white and teal. Then I had my lion king moment when they lifted my baby in the air during my c-section and said, it's a boy. Was amazing as the nurse started singing 😂😂😂 Just made the whole experience more special.

I think the midwives and scanners get more excited than you when they find out its going to be a surprise 😂

Aww lovely You don’t hear it very often, I’m 35+4 with twins and we don’t know the genders, I didn’t find out with my first either. It keeps you going.. I understand people finding out but when I was having my first son the excitement of finally knowing the sex kept me going through the labour. I am getting a little impatient with these two but I’ll know in the next two weeks when they make an appearance x

We chose not to find out. We really weren’t bothered either way and it was lovely to have that moment after giving birth when me and my partner looked and said ‘it’s a girl!’
