Boy or Girl? That's the Question!
Do you want to know whether you are having a boy or a girl? This can be a big decision to make, with lots to consider. How does your partner feel? How will you decide?
Many parents opt not to learn their babies' genders because they want to be surprised at birth. It is hard to argue with the suspense that builds throughout pregnancy; finding out your little one's gender when you meet for the first time is a once-in-a-lifetime event. What a dramatic moment!
For other moms- and dads-to-be, knowing if a boy or girl is on the way can help the bonding process begin sooner. Because a man doesn't have a physical connection with his developing baby, finding out may help Dad-to-be develop a more concrete picture of what Baby will be like.
When pondering which path you and your partner will take, consider that this is not only about discovering the sex of your baby; you'll need to contemplate whether or not knowing might help you bond with Baby and better envision what your new life.
