Do You Want To Know The Sex?
Last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Minnie Driver once again talked about her refusal to learn the sex of her baby. I’d probably think she was in the minority on this topic, but two of my friends are pregnant right now, and neither wants to know their baby’s gender. It just got me thinking about the reasons to find out and not to find out. Some parents think it helps with the bonding process if they can call their child "he" or "she" asap. But others seem to enjoy the element of surprise. One of my aforementioned friends is already a mom, and she told me waiting to find out the sex was the only thing that got her through labor. Well, she’s probably exaggerating, but you get the point. I know it’s an age-old question but I’m throwing it out there again: Would you want to know the sex of your baby before he/she was born? Why or why not?
