Call me an idiot, but your family already knows you’re pregnant, right?  If so, I’d just be like “guess what, it’s a XYZ!”.  Personally I don’t get the whole big deal about the sex since a lot of people don’t even find out.

i had a friend who baked a cake dyed blue, then covered the whole thing in white icing, so the gender was revealed when they cut the cake  (obv if it was a girl they wouldve done pink cake).  ithought it was kinda a cute idea!  (and might work well for thanksgiving!)

I felt too sick at that point to be creative.  Mostlt I was like, “it’s a girl, now excuse me while I go hurl”.  🙂

We called our respective moms the minute we got outside the u/s lab, sent a text to our sibs and a few close friends and emailed/facebooked the rest. It was super exciting for us to find out, but not worth making a huge hoopla over… plus there was no way we could keep it a secret until the next time we saw everyone together.

We told everyone the gender- but not the name.  That remained a surprise until the birth.  Next pregnancy I want to not find out the gender.  I really like Nado’s idea about the cake- that is really cute.
