Excited - gender reveal party next Sat

Next Thurs, Jan 10 I have my 20 week ultrasound. We're going to get them to seal the gender in an envelope and we'll take to a baker and have a cake made with a pink or blue inside. We're having a few friends and family over on Saturday and we'll cut the cake and all find out together. My husband thinks it's stupid but I think it's fun. It'll just be a few people and we'll have some snacks and cake. Praying the baby gives the tech a good view of his/her parts.

Re: Excited - gender reveal party next Sat

so how does that work when you don't want to find out the gender? do you just not look at the screen the whole time? Oh man I would not be able to resist seeing my baby

How fun! A friend of mine did this except she knew the gender and her mom ripped into her cupcake so fast! Everyone got an individual cupcake to eat at the same time instead of one big cake. It was cute

That sounds so fun! We had them keep the gender from us this time too. We took a little note card for the tech to write it down and we took it to a place that is special to us to open. Then we went and got balloons and did the balloons in a fancy box for the kids. It was awesome!

Sounds awesome! My husband and I are doing this in two weeks! He cannot be at my ultrasound due to work so my mom is going to take the envelope and bake the cake. I just hope I can wait until the next day to find out after the ultrasound

Re: Excited - gender reveal party next Sat

Just thought I'd update you all....



It was fun. I put out a little chalk board where people could vote for girl or boy. We had snacks and hung out and then cut the cake (we were waiting for my parents to get there).
