I am pregnant with my second child and I have my 20 week ultra-sound in a few days. I didn't find out sex with my first child, but this time I am unsure about waiting.

I feel like I want to know, but you can't unring a bell and I worry I will be disappointed once it is done. I would love to hear people's take on finding out sex — did it help you bond sooner to your in-utero baby? Did you feel at all disappointed once you found out? Did you feel less or more excited about the birth once you found out?
