Team (Finding Out/Still Deciding/Blue/Pink/Green/etc): Finding out. We did genetic testing so my RE already knows the sex. We wanted to wait to see if it was successful first so we might ask on Friday.
Pregnancy History: One ectopic before this.
How you got pregnant (naturally <12 months, naturally >12 months, IVF, etc): FET#1 after IVF

EDD: November 17 Team: Probably green Pregnancy History: Full term DS born Jan 2014. MMC at 16 weeks November 2015. BFP just a few days ago and hoping for our rainbow baby How you got pregnant: Naturally <12 months
Pregnancy History: DS was born Jan15 after 22 cycles TTC on our own and 4 cycles with the RE. First ever BFP from Follistim + IUI. I had a super easy pregnancy and delivery.
How I got pregnant: 11 cycles TTC on our own, went back to RE, this was our first treatment cycle - Follistim + TI (I am legit in shock that I got pregnant from sex! I was pretty sure that was never going to happen for us!)
Team: Finding out (97% sure) I told DH I had officially decided I want to know, I think he is in agreement.
Pregnancy History: CP in November 2015
How I got pregnant: Mostly naturally, lol. I was diagnosed with PCOS last July. I had ovulated 4x in a year and a half. Started on metformin and spironolactone. Worked on limiting carbs. That really helped my cycles shorten, I ovulated 4 times in the 7 months we were trying! I feel very fortunate to have gotten my BFP cycle 4, month 7.
danib I actually am not positive I want to find out and I love your thinking with having that gift of a surprise after L&D but I didn't think not finding out was a real option. Did people still buy gender specific stuff that you were left not able to use ?
I agree with it being better for registry stuff to not find out. When people know, they tend to buy cute clothes. When they don't, they tend to actually look at your registry and get you the items you need.
With regard to the Team Green issue, I can confidently say that the surprise was worth it, especially after 5 hours of pushing. I mean, once you know, you know forever. In the long run 9 months isn't very much To me it just felt like an added bonus on the day he was born to be like "holy crap, I'm a mom...and I have a SON." Were there times during pregnancy that I was curious? Sure. But waiting was worth it, really. We are so excited to be Team Green again.
Funny too, like danib I was absolutely convinced I was having a girl with DS!
As far as the registry/shower went, it wasn't an issue. I only registered for neutral things in terms of baby gear (from carseats to diaper bags to swaddle blankets), which to me made a ton of sense since we knew we wanted more than one child and who know what mix we'll end up with. For the nursery, I wouldn't have painted/decorated it pink even if I had known for sure I was having a girl, so that was a non-factor. And newborn clothing is easy to find in neutral colors, plus they only wear it for 2 weeks or less anyway. Anyway, after he was born and it was known that he was a boy, the blue gifts came pouring in!
After hearing anecdotes from you gals, I am SO on board with Team Green - my husband will thank you! Of course it's subject to change because I'm very impatient normally lol. But I just checked out gender neutral nurseries on Pinterest - LOVE.
I agree with neutral stuff like car seats etc even if you do find out. It makes it easier to use with more than one child, or pass on to a friend later on. Some people are more sensitive to gender related colors than others. Or in case of girls, will go crazy with buying clothes when you really need diapers.
