@MrsDiddles I would have it in the 18-20 wk range. I don’t think gender reveals are attention grabby at all. In fact, I’m not planning on having one bc I don’t feel like planning it, but I have family members who are asking me to have one bc they think it is fun. I think if you have people that are happy and excited for you, then I think they can be a lot of fun. I would be careful bc a lot of people just aren’t as excited about babies.

Not even really sure why you are posting on my thread with your condescending comments at all. Like the last option of the poll said “If you choose ^^ this option above, get off my poll!! :op I don’t want your opinion anyway!”
And I really don’t. I do not care that YOU think it is attention grabby. As @Mischka:
maybe this is not something done in your circle, but it is in mine.
Furthermore, my bun in the oven is the first child of the next generation on both my side and DH’s side. EVERYONE is as excited about this baby as we are. Ppl are already taking bets on the gender. So I KNOW they will want to come and find out the gender. Secondly, this party is not meant to be all about “ME, Me, me.” It is an excuse to have both sides of the family get together, to eat and to have a game night. Our familys haven’t been together since our wedding last year, so I assumed it will be fun.
Thank you to you lovely Bees who actually answered my question. I miss the days when the rule was “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.” I was not and AM not asking for your opinions on if you think I should have this party. Just asking your opinion on the timeframe. If you cannot contribute appropriately to this conversation, then please exit stage left. Thank you.

I agree with your POV 100%. I wouldn’t have one, but I’m awkward with attention and am uncomfortable with even a shower, but I would love to go to one. To me, it is a great reason to see people I love, have a great meal and celebrate life.
To respond to the poll, if I can hold it in long enough, I would wait until about 20 weeks, so you are showing a little tummy and not looking weird in maternity cloths. But, if you can’t wait, have the party as soon as you know! Happy Gender Reveal!

I can’t wait until people start having POAS parties. You know it’s coming.
