Hi ladies,
As most have now done harmony or similar test- wanted to ask the gender question!
Do you know what you're having? Do you have a preference?
How are you finding out? And if it's before bubs is born- how are you sharing the news with friends/family?
I will receive my harmony results next wk and am trying to decide if I have enough willpower to hold off and open the envelope with my husband on Christmas morning!
(He doesn't think I'll make it!)

I found with all my babies but only DH and I knew, we told nobody else.

I loved that special secret and people (although they hassled) seemed to like the surprise.

We're not going to find out what we're having. We didn't tick that box on the Harmony form. DH is secretly hoping for a boy I think but we don't really mind either way. If we were going to find out next time (we won't though) we would keep it to only ourselves. I don't have enough willpower to do that so we won't find out next time lol. It would be nice to buy some gender specific things ahead of time and know nothing would be going to waste but I like the idea of the big surprise at birth more.

Also, a friend of mine opened her results at Christmas and it was a lovely 'present' for them. Hold off if you can until then because that would be a Christmas to remember :)

We plan to find out. Im going to have the Dr put it an an envelope for us next week.

The 22nd of Jan (we are moving house before that), we have going to invite our families over for a gender reveal cake afternoon tea. We will all find out the gender together.

The lady that made our wedding cake is going to create a baby cake for us. She and the Dr will be the only to know untill we cut the cake. So excited
