I was talking to my friend a while ago on Facebook (she is pregnant with her first so we were talkin’ baby stuff) and she was telling me about a super cute and unique way to reveal to the world, the gender of your unborn babe! I had never heard of it before but simply loved it so much, I just have to share!!!
This is totally for those of you who are unsure you want to know the gender, but really do deep down inside

When you go into your gender u/s, tell the tech (before he/she starts, LOL..) that you don’t want to know the gender of your baby, just yet.. Have the tech peek at the gender, then write it down (or give you the cute U/S pic showing what baby is..) and put it into an envelope. Then when you have your baby shower, you order the cake, give the envelope to the bakery person ( in this case I guess you would have wanted the tech to write down the gender as opposed to the actual cute u/s pic, ha!) and tell the bakery person what kind of cake you want. Then, tell them to look at the gender and fill the cake with the appropriate color of filling (pink if girl, blue if boy).

The day of your baby shower, have everyone gather around at the cake table. Cut into the cake and if the filing is pink it is girl (DUH) and blue for boy!! SURPRISE!!!! You find out when everyone does and it can be a SUPER big celebration for all!!!! I just thought this was sooo cute and have never heard of this before, as a way of revealing baby’s gender to your friends/family. Too cute!! IF I was not so gung-ho on NOT finding out this time around, I so would have done this and taken video and put it up on my blog. LOVE this idea!
What are some ways you have revealed your baby’s gender or what ways have your friends and family revealed the gender of their child? Anything super unique??
