Just saw this article and found it amusing. …anyone actually do something like this? To me, it seems a bit too personal for a party, but then again I prefered to keep my sono pictures off of facebook.
ONE MORE WEEK… come on baby! Soon I’ll have baby pictures to share and sonograms will be a thing of the past.

Thaaaaaaat is really weird. Sorry, I don’t really want to see my first ultrasound with a group of people at a “party.”

Yikes, all I can think of is how horrible it would be if something had gone wrong (I imagine the people having these parties have had other Ultra-Sounds Earlier). It is amazing to see the little bean in there moving around but to have a whole party based on it when the safety of the proceedure itself is still a bit of a questionmark seems too risky for my taste.

I like what one of the commenters on that page said about that idea, “It might be overexposure to Pinterest.” Made me lol.

No… no way would I do this or attend one. What if something was wrong? That isn’t a moment I want to share with a large gathering of people. And even if everything was okay, it’s just strange.

I heard that my cousin had an elective 3D ultrasound performed at her shower. My grandfather (in his 80s) never saw a sonogram before and he was amazed. I wouldn’t do it nor would I be excited about attending, but to each, her own.

I actually know someone who had a gender reveal ultrasound party done by that same company. I haven’t changed my stance since I heard about it then… I think its kind of obnoxious.

A lot of these trends are bordering on obnoxious for me, from posting pee sticks on facebook, to having gender reveal parties, to now having these sonogram parties. It’s cool—I like parties, too, and have always been the party hostess in my circle–but all the parties aren’t honoring my own various life stages, geez. How conceited. =) if you want a party, just throw a regular party with your friends. But if I had to go to a friend’s sonogram party, then a gender reveal party, then a baby shower, then a “homecoming” get together….ugh.

As much as I love all things baby… I really dont want to be eating a piece of cake while watching a nurse search your womb for your unborn child. These trends gross me out.
And I too do not understand posting the pee stick. Please keep that to your self.

I think that gender reveal parties can be cute (with immediate family and close friends only and sans sonogram machine), but this seems a bit much. I would never attend one of these parties and certainly wouldn’t host one.

@6598731ssfse3: I agree with you about the gender reveal parties! And the fact that the sonogram machine is bit much but I would totally go to one if I was invited, I think it would be cool 🙂 And I love parties!

DH’s cousin did this last year – and I refused to go but they had almost 25 people there (crazyyyy)
I know now that we’re pregnant MIL feels she should come to our scans – where I think its a personal thing between you and your significant other, its just another thing to add to her list of things she doesn’t understand about me

@BookGirrl: I felt weird about sending my husband a picture of the pee stick via text. A private message between the two of us. Def not a FB thing!
@mrsSonthebeach: Congrats on being so close! Now that I’m 5.5 weeks Post it has gotten easier and more rewarding each day. Hang in there. As for the sono parties. I agree with the other PP that is a little much for several reasons.
@BookGirrl: People are having Homecoming parties now too? Didn’t know that. Gosh I hope my friends/family don’t catch wind of that one and start doing it. I’ve heard of sip and see’s but we’ve only had them for a friend who lives out of state and didn’t have a shower here. Is that the same thing as a Homecoming party?
