Anyone Not Find Out Gender But Dh Did

I have been talking to dh about letting this baby be a surprise. He thought about it and really considered it, but came back and told me that he didn't think he could do that. He REALLY wants to know. I really think it would be SO neat for this to be a surprise. Is it realistic for me to think that maybe (just *maybe*) he could find out for himself and still let it be a surprise for me?

If he won't tell you, or anyone else then go for it. I personally know that my husband would be too excited to keep quiet. If I had wanted it to be a surprise, I wouldn't have let him know either. However, I don't think anything is wrong with him knowing and you not if he'll not tell anyone. I think it would upset me if he told anyone else, you may be different though. Good luck with your decision!!!

How good is he at keeping a secret... I think it would be very hard if just one of you knew. I know I would cave in and want to know as well. I guess it all depends on how well DH can keep his mouth closed... it'll be hard though... when he least expects it, he'll call your baby a "he" or say "my son". Best of luck!

I think if he slips and he really tried hard to keep the secret, I'll be fine. Also, I'd give him a handful of people (my parents, his parents and our best friends) that he can tell but that I trust to also keep the secret.

My husband also wants to find out and I don't...he also is sure he will "know" just by looking at the sonogram - so we decided that I will go to the appt by myself. If it is obvious, we will both know, otherwise it will stay a secret. I couldn't handle him knowing and my not, and I know eventually he would tell someone like his sister, and it would drive me nuts!
