I want to know the sex of our baby but my husband doesn't. What's the fair thing to do?

With our other 3 we found out. All 3 are boys! Now of course I want to know the sex of the next baby. If it's a girl, I need to get some pink into this house!

Try to change your husbands mind and tell him you are dying to know.  If he still doesnt budge then go along with him, but I think you can sway him with your womanly powers

If you want to know then I think you should find out.  A pregnant woman doesnt need unnecessary stress added, if your husband doesnt then dont tell him.  Although when he knows you know he will prob crack and ask you till you tell him.  You are the one that is pregnant so it is your way or the high way in my opinion.

Good suggestion from FoleyR ... perhaps a compromise can be met?

Is your husband hoping for a surprise this time, in comparison to the last?

Is he ok with you knowing ahead of time, but keeping it a surprise for him?
