Some people are great at keeping a secret, and then there’s me. Call me overly excited but there are certain things I can’t wait to shout from the rooftops, and the gender of my baby was one of them. It’s so hard to hold it in, especially when you wait until the “safe point” to let people even know you are expecting a child.
My husband and I actually learned the gender of our child in the beginning weeks of my second trimester. Trust when I say it was weird for us that they were even able to tell us with so much accuracy, but my, how science has changed (we had the optional genetic screening). Looking back I wish I had a redo since many of my pregnant friends are filling their social media newsfeeds with awesome snaps of their baby’s gender reveal. And here I just told people it’s a boy!
Honestly speaking, you don’t have to go over the top or do anything special. Heck, not all parents even want to know the gender of their child. There is, however, something fun about documenting the reactions of others and how you share your news. If you are preggers and thinking about creative ways to reveal your baby’s gender, here are five ideas you might want to consider.
