Those who don't find out gender

Do you ever get sick of buying gender neutral stuff? I can't stand it anymore! I mean, I'm excited for the surprise at birth, but if I look at anything else that is beige, yellow, or green, I think I'll go mad! I have broken down and bought some pink stuff, but I don't want to spend a lot of money on gender specific colors.

Re: Those who don't find out gender

Withthe first I wasn't going to find out and was going all gender neutral, that was tough! Even the gn stuff seemed to favor one sex to another. I hate the color yellow and green is not my favorite either so I was struggling. Then I got into a car accident and at the hospital they told me my "daughter" was just fine. I was so upset but then I figured it was an accident and meant for me to go pink crazy (so I did). Less than 2 months later my daughter was born..... with a penis!!! Worse than going gender neutral is going pink for your son!!

Re: Those who don't find out gender

I usually like yellow and green, so It wasn't a problem with waiting for my first one. Now that we're waiting on the second, I have bought some boy and girl stuff that I really like, and I guess I'll just put what this baby can't wear in storage for the next one! I am much more curious with this one that I was with #1, though! 12 more weeks to go!

I'm glad everything turned out alright, but this is hilarious!

Re: Those who don't find out gender

I think I had too much gender neutral stuff - I ended up wanting boy stuff after he was born and I thought some of the g/n stuff was too girly. I also didn't know what I like as well. Now I know what styles of sleepers I like, pants, onesies, etc. I was a little sick of yellow and green LOL. I happen to like yellow and green though and even picked out the bedding in yellow and green just b/c I liked it.

Re: Those who don't find out gender

If your family is anything like ours , they will be so excited to learn the sex they will start buying a ton of gender specific stuff after the birth. I barely got to use any of the stuff I had because everyone went crazy buying pink after Delaney was born!

Re: Those who don't find out gender

I haven't found out for any of mine...due with #5 in Nov.

I only have about 10 gender neutral outfits and then now I have a girl wardrobe and a boys. I've had 3 girls and then a boy.

I think just having a few gender neutral things will get you by till you can go out and shop.
