Luckily, he's come around to my side of the fence, but a part of me still feels like I'm cheating him out of something. We could still change our mind, but as of now, I'm set on not knowing.
There are only a handful of actual reasons I don't want to know, listed below, really I just have this strong feeling of not wanting to know. I can't really explain it.
- Knowing the gender of the baby does not change anything about our love or desire to have the baby.
- No knowing will cause me to spend less money on clothes, etc. before the baby is born as it is more difficult to find gender neutral items, and after, I'll be a busy mother of three. (I think this was a big selling point for Keith!)
- We're planning a gender neutral nursery, but if we knew, the nursery colors wouldn't change, why confuse things?
