Just wanted some opinions...
See, we were Team Green with Michael, but not entirely by choice. Back then (he's 11), they only did one ultrasound, and if you weren't able to see then it was "sorry, too bad." I didn't want to know, but my husband did. Michael had his legs crossed and wouldn't move, so he made the decision for us. We didn't really have many name ideas either, it was either name them after parents or else, lol... Michael is Michael Lee Wilson KeAloha (Micheal was my husband's middle name, Lee my dad's middle name, Wilson my husband's father's middle name, and KeAloha is his Hawaiian name--my ex husband is half Native Hawaiian)...and we did the nursery and clothes in "Winnie the Pooh"
With Flower, I didn't want to know, but I was in a car accident at 15 weeks, and when they couldn't find the heartbeat they did an ultrasound. The ER u/s tech was soooo excited about the gender that she spilled it. It seemed to make naming her soooo hard though, because I obsessed about the perfect girl name for months. In the end, it took my entire 5 days in the hospital after she was born to decide on her name...Meleana KeAhi Pualani (song of grace, pillar of fire, flower from Heaven). The "Flower" part was the only part not up for debate, because that's what my son had been calling her since the day he told me I was pregnant. ("Mommy has a girl baby in her tummy, and I'm gonna call her Flower...because babies are like flowers, God plants a seed and they grow") By the time she was born, I was single, and it was only really my family and my ex-mother-in-law weighing in on names.
So...that brings me to this little jumping bean. The clothes now are soooo much cuter than when I was pregnant with my son, Jeff wants a unique name, and I'm definitely a planner. The practical side of me says it would be so much easier to get everything ahead of time...but I really did enjoy being pregnant with my son and waiting to find out. I wasn't dissapointed knowing my daughter was a girl (I sort-of knew, because of my son's prediction, if that doesn't sound too odd). I was just wondering, of the Team Greens or former Team Greens, what was your experience like? Do you wish you would have found out in advance?
