Boy or Girl? Finding out the sex of your baby at birth!

I admit it: I caved easily and early both times we were pregnant. I grew up with 3 sisters, and I desperately DESPERATELY wanted a girl. And then once we had our oldest (Lucy) I desperately wanted her to have a sister. And so as much as I loved the idea of waiting until birth to find out the sex of our baby, I also knew that mentally, I might need a little more time to prepare for a boy (even though I KNEW that boys and girls and gender and sex are such complicated things...not black and white). 

But thankfully I've got to experience this fun reveal dozens of times through attending my clients birth stories. I LOVE photographing the moment when mom or dad looks down and announces, "It's a girl!" or "It's a boy!" EVERY birth I attend is magical, but there is truly something extra special about keeping that one detail secret. And I always remind myself that for most of human existence, we haven't been able to know. 

I put together a collection of a few favorite "reveal" moments. Some of these little ones were the first girl or boy to be born into that family, while others were the same sex as what they already had at home. Regardless, the moment they met their baby was absolutely priceless. 

I'd love to hear if you found out (or didn't find out) in the comments below! If we ever have a third baby, I think we're going for a surprise!
