    We will be announcing my pregnancy and the sex at the same time, and only to our families.  I invited my parents to visit for a weekend in June and will be inviting my in-laws for dinner that Saturday night.  The pregnancy will be obvious when they see me, but we will be officially "announcing" that evening and I hope to show a portion of video from the a/s and have them guess the sex.

    We found out this morning, went to my mom's house to tell my parents, SO texted his parents, then we announced it on Facebook. It doubled as our official pregnancy announcement on Facebook also.

    We're having the a/s on Monday. Having the tech put the sex in an envelope so we can't see it, then having dinner with our close friends and family next Saturday, the 17th. SIL is making us a cake that'll be pink or blue when we cut into it for dessert. So SIL will be the only one who knows all next week! It will definitely be a looooong week for us.

    We're going to have a cute picture taken (nothing crazy or over the top!  I'm SO not AW-y), then text it to parents (followed by a phone call) and test it to the rest of our huge family :)

    Ahh, it will be a long week!  But at least you will know LO is healthy! 

    We did this with our last pregnancy!  When I brought the envelope to our pastry chef he slipped when he was filling in the icing line on his ipad and said, "b.. pink or blue icing." . I was soooooo angry!  This happened on a Monday and we were getting the cake on Friday (just DH & I) and I had to keep it a secret from him almost 5 days!

    We're finding out with cake!

    I'm going to get the tech to put the sex in an envelope, then hand it to a friend at work when I get in.  He'll email the bakery what colour icing to use, and we'll pick the cake up that night.  We'll probably skype with my ILs and maybe my mom and step-dad will come over?  Either way, I get cake!

    Oh, and it's next tuesday.

    My MIL is coming to the sono (I told her she could) She has all boys so I've been trying to include her in things I would include  my own mom in. My mom lives 12 hours away from me so I'm also doing the colored flowers to work thing. I thought about doing a balloon and they pop it to find the blue/pink confetti.

    Visiting home in the middle of June & family is doing a shower for us then since we live so far away & I figured I would surprise them at the party. It's only a few weeks after we should find out so hopefully I don't slip when I talk to anyone :)

    Only friends who experienced a third trimester loss.  I was pregnant last year and had a truly horrifying a/s (won't go into detail in a happy thread!) so we are waiting to announce until we get past that point with this pregnancy.

    DH and I are going to tell our kids first before we let everyone else know. We're going to have a box with a pull string hanging from one of our trees. When the kids pull the string, blue or pink confetti, balloons and streamers will fall down on them. We'll just send a picture of that moment to everyone else.

    We have also been keeping it a secret from almost everyone. My in laws and one friend know about the pregnancy but so far no one knows it's a girl. I'm really excited to see all of the reactions! This Sunday my family and I are going to a local zoo and to Red Robin to celebrate Mother's Day. I bought my two sons this t-shirt to wear on Sunday:

    Hopefully everyone will figure it out :)  I was thinking of getting myself a shirt that has "Little Sister" on the belly for me to wear as well which should be fun.

    Our families know about the pregnancy, but we are going to have the gender put in an envelope and go to dinner with our parents and siblings the same night we find out to announce/find out ourselves the gender to everyone. Then we will announce the pregnancy/gender on Facebook in some cute way.

    I voted "other." We didn't really have a "party" as in inviting the phonebook. It was just my parents and my husband and I and we opened up a box of balloons to tell them. We told them the day we found out--after work.

    Other-  MIL was with us at the a/s.  We did a cupcake reveal with my mom, brother & his fiancée, step-dad, and DH's step-dad.

    I texted my other brother (at work during dinner) and DH's sister (lives across the country).

    I called my dad, paternal grandparents, and maternal grandma.

    Finally, I posted a picture on FB just for fun.  Whew, Monday was busy!

    Here is my FB announcement!  Not very good, but my dog hated wearing that hat!

    Were doing a mini sex reveal with our parents but will just tell everyone else. Most likely with a picture from the reveal to the parents. :)

    Not a party but something fun. I am still working out what exactly, I have 3 times to do it (DH's family and extended at a BBQ, my mom and siblings, my dad and stepmom) And then there is Facebook.
