What Do You Think? Ultrasounds

Technology is truly amazing. We have the ability to see our unborn babies, and even know their gender, months before their births!
When I was pregnant with our daughter, I knew I wanted to find out what she was as soon as I could! I wanted to shop for cute clothes, decorate her room, etc. I was also very sure and hopeful that she was a boy, and I desired to see that I was right! Haha, how wrong I was! See, as a girl with three sisters and no brothers, I wanted something different than what I’d always been around, but God gave us a sweet girl instead. And I am so grateful that He did.
With our older son, I was anxious to find out his gender because our daughter really wanted a girl/didn’t want a boy (lol) and we felt we should give her time to prepare if it were a dreaded boy! She actually only had disappointment for about 5 minutes and then she was absolutely fine. She was 3 years 8 months when he was born. I was thrilled with the news that the baby was a boy! I finally got to watch a baby boy change into a man over the years – how wild!!
With our youngest, I was fully prepared to wait until he was born to find out, but our two much older children by this time, wanted to know what he was SOOO bad, and we decided to go ahead and find out. We were all again super happy! (Of course we were - boy or girl, we’re always super happy!)
If we have another baby, I would like to wait to find out whether it’s a he or a she at their birth, and my husband fully supports this decision. I just don’t know if I can convince the kids that it’s a good idea. Or will *I* even be able to withstand the waiting?
What do you think?
Did you find out the gender of your child(ren) before they were born?
