Time for some fun stuff! We are thinking about having a “gender reveal party” once we find out the gender for real (which could be this month)! I don’t know much about them yet, but they seem like a really cute and fun idea. I want to do everything (silly or important) and experience little thing I possibly can. It still amazes me and boggles my mind that I am pregnant, and I can actually do these things. I never thought I would be here! I am so grateful everyday!
Now, I know some people have the gender placed in an envelope and not find out until the actual reveal at the party (finding out by cutting a cake and seeing pink or blue inside). I would love to do that, but I know I can’t wait! LOL! Andy is excited to find out, too. My mom laughed at me, and said she knows there’s no way I could not find out ahead of time. 🙂 Also, if Andy and I find out together – it would be a really special and emotional moment just for the two of us, too.
So, I’m thinking he and I will find out and keep it a secret until we can get together with our family and friends. That means not telling you guys! That’s going to be sooo hard. Sorry guys! Some of my family and friends in real life follow along on my blog and Facebook page. I don’t want to ruin the surprise for them (and some might blab, lol).
I can have everything planned and ready to go (for the most part) ahead of time – as far as what games and party favors we want. All we would need is the pink or blue cake and an actual date for the party. My mom said she would help. At least with Andy & I knowing, we can have everything set. Who would do the cake if nobody knows? Do you just give the envelope to the baker?
We don’t have an actual date for a gender scan. I get weekly ultrasounds, so we’re bound to find out soon. Unless I tell them not to tell me until a certain week – or – go get a private scan ourselves when we know for sure want to find out (that would cost extra money though). We could plan to try to find out the gender at 15 weeks, 1 day (Wednesday 2/27), and then plan the party for that Saturday, March 2nd. I think we can handle about 2 days without telling anyone, lol. But watch – baby won’t cooperate, and we won’t be able to see “the goods”! However, with all the other ultrasounds, I think my docs will know.
I know we still want to do the cake. It will be fun for our family, even though we’ll already know the answer. I’m not sure what types of games or party favors we need. I’ll look on pinterest. If you have any ideas on any of this stuff, please let me know! 🙂 I’m sooo excited!!! Fun, fun!
Here is my little video on my “gender predictors” so far. I know they aren’t for real, but it’s fun to see what results come up. 😀
I re-did the baking soda test because I wasn’t sure if I did it right…
