April 2013 Moms

Scheduled my a/s, but...

My a/s is scheduled for 2:30 pm on Monday, November 12th! I was so excited while I was scheduling the appointment that I completely forgot that DH will be out of town from November 5th - November 21st.

I'm definitely not gonna reschedule, because I know it is important to have it done by a certain time, and I'll already be 20 weeks on the day of my appointment. So I've decided to have the technician put the sex results in an envelope, so DH and I can figure out together. I just have to have enough self-control to hold on to the results for a week and a half without peeking:)

I was thinking about getting a tiny cake made for just DH, DD, and I. That way I could give the results to the bakery, and not have to be worried about peeking:) Do any of you ladies have any other fun ideas on how we can break the news to ourselves?

Re: Scheduled my a/s, but...

  • We went to a restaurant and had them make pancakes, with blueberries for boy or strawberries for girl. Just like you, I wanted to just find out as our family, but still make it fun, even if without the hubbub of a whole gender reveal party. And, I wanted to do something original. One of my friends had the paint department mix up pink or blue paint for them for the nursery . . .

    The word you're looking for is SEX.  I promise.  No, it's not gender.  It's sex.  You're welcome.
  • We couldn't have put off knowing with our first a/s.  I took one look at the monitor and could easily see that he was a boy.  No technician opinion needed.

    The cake and other food ideas sound great.

  • We were unsure whether DH would be able to come to my a/s appointment because of work and if he couldn't, that's what I was going to do (the cake idea). I think its cute!

  • Whatever you come up with, based on finding out once in the u/s room and the other with my family, I think you'll really enjoy just finding out the three of you. :)

  • You could wait until Thanksgiving day and open the results - it is a holiday! Maybe have the bakery make cupcakes with Pilgrim boys or Girls on them? Our 20wk is Dec 20th - I wanted it as close to Christmas as possible. We will open our results on Christmas morning, just the two of us. We have a friend who makes Stockings so we'll give her the envelope and wrap the right color stocking for us to hang on the mantel. Of couse we'll follow up on FB with another announcement to 'the world' with just the stocking - see my PP about "FB Makes it Official, Right?" with our We're Expecting" announcement. Such cute ideas!!

    Yeah, I'm not a fan of a big party just to reveal the sex of the baby either.

    I agree. I'm not sure if I would have the will power to no find out during the u/s otherwise. So it is kinda nice that it is working out this way:)

  • Well shoot. I think the envelope and cake thing is a really cute idea.

    I was also going to say this. Big gender reveal party? NMS. Private family reveal? Super cute!

    One of my friends was just telling me how she went and bought a boy and a girl NB outfit, gave the envelope to her friend, and had the friend wrap up the right outfit for them to open together.

    Oh this is cute.  Generally the gender-reveal hoopla bugs me, but THIS is adorable.  You could also buy both and have the shopkeeper gift wrap one and return the other (secretly of course), that would be cute.

    I love this idea, but my DH isn't a fan of cake... I know, he's a weirdo:)

  • I still have not "come out" to my extended family. My grandparents anniversary is Nov. 6. We are having a dinner party for them on the 11th. Where I will enclose our latest ultrasound picture in a Happy Anniversary card for them. We will then have a cake with pink of blue inside of it. So, I'm reallllly excited about it!
