Pros of knowing:
- Easier to plan/buy what we need
- We only have to figure out/agree on one name
- Won't have to have the "you're not finding out?" discussion with family, friends, and complete strangers who will undoubtedly give us their unsolicited opinions, as people tend to do about almost anything pregnancy/parenting related, haha
- Anticipation. Buddy's birth was anticipated just on the fact that he was #1. It would be fun to have some added anticipation with this pregnancy.
- The joy of hearing, "It's a ______!" during an already emotionally charged moment
- Keeping the guessing game going for an additional (God willing) 20 more weeks after the big ultrasound
