Every time I did an ultrasound during pregnancy, the doctor asked me if the sex of the child should be spoken. Even then, I thought, are there really such parents who do not want to know it until the baby is born?
I do not believe in prejudices, so we purchased both the stroller and some of the things before the birth. The advantage in this case is that you should not look for universal options, such as purple and green clothes, but turn to the traditional pink and blue.
Repair will definitely do more slowly than buying things. Therefore, if you are planning for a baby nursery, knowledge of the floor will help determine the color scheme and interior in advance, and not to do it after the birth of the child.
Many parents begin to communicate with the baby even during pregnancy. In this case, knowledge of the floor will help determine the name or nickname. In addition, there is a theory that if you treat a future boy as a girl, he will grow up soft and weak.
Here I do not quite agree, because I think that character traits do not depend much on this. In extreme cases, you can use the diminutive nickname of a universal type, without sex (sun, for example).
If pregnancy is not the first, then it is much easier to prepare children for the emergence of a new family member when it is known in advance whether it is a brother or sister.On the other hand, this situation can be beaten as a surprise for the whole family.
And it is somehow easier for parents to prepare in advance for the appearance of a daughter (or son). You can settle disputes around a name in advance, for example.
My husband and I never thought about whether to find out the sex of a future child. Of course, find out! Like all men, the husband wanted a boy, but for some reason I was sure that I had a girl.
From my mom, I have often heard the phrase: Daddies always want a son, but they love daughters more. And my joy knew no bounds when I learned that we would have a girl. The husband, of course, pretended to be upset, but I reminded him in time that the sex of the child depends entirely on the man.
Methods for determining gender
Of course, there are many cases where even the results of ultrasound are erroneous. Therefore, just in case, we still bought a universal red stroller. Moreover, a few days before the birth, my relative was a psychic who assured her that a boy would be born.
There are many folk signs that help determine the sex of the child. I believe them a little. For example, it is believed that mothers of boys remain beautiful, and mothers of girls lose attractiveness, they say, the daughter takes all the beauty. It’s not for me to judge, of course, but during pregnancy I was pretty sweet, men tried to get to know me until the 7th month;)
It is also believed that those who lean on sweets expect a girl. Again, for sweetness, I was not drawn at all. In the form of my belly, the predictions were different, how many people, so many opinions.
There are also special tables (Chinese and Japanese) for determining the sex of the unborn child. My friends and I checked their truthfulness, not everyone matched. And scientists strongly deny them.
Now I think that the sex of the child does not matter. Yes, there are wishes of parents, but it is unlikely that parents who wanted a girl would not love a boy. Now the main thing for me is that the child be healthy, and sex is a secondary matter. Moreover, we do not live in the east, and are not members of royal families, where the sex of the child actually determines its future.
What do you think, is it worth knowing the sex of the baby before birth?
