Team Green! 2nd Time Mom tells the ends and outs of keeping the gender a surprise!
Lauren P. A Kinder teacher
What made you decide to keep the gender a surprise?
-We had a very slim chance of being able to have a natural birth and would have to have a csection so our only surprise was to wait to find out the gender!
What has been the hardest thing about not finding out what the baby is?
– the hardest part was not being able to have the nursery completed. We planned a neutral decor but left the details for once we find out the gender.
What has been the most fun thing?
the unknown! Guessing what we think it’s going to be!
How are you decorating the nursery?
the nursery is safari animals gray and white and we will add touches of navy or pink once the baby is here!
If you were to have more children would you keep it a secret again?
yes, we would do it again! It’s been a pretty neat experience so far!
What did you do for your baby shower?
Our baby shower was gender neutral and we got the necessities along with clothes and blankets in grays. Then we will have a sip and see once the baby is born to get more gender-specific baby gear!
What do you secretly hope you are having?
– I would love a girl! My husband says he wants another boy but secretly he would love a daddy’s little girl.
What advice would you give to parents that are trying to decide if they should keep their baby’s gender a surprise or not?
I would tell them to go for it and stick with it! So many people tried to talk us out of it but we’re holding strong to our decision. It’s going to be such a special moment between my husband and I getting to find out the gender when we get to hold her/him for the first time!
