You could always have the doc put in a sealed envelope for you to open at home together… That’s probably what I would do. Otherwise, the balloon idea is cute. You could also text him some kind of cute photo if he asks to know before he gets home. My only concern with the balloons in the car is that it would be at the end of the day, right? At that point, maybe he should just wait until he gets home??

I really like the envelope idea!!  But if your mom is going with you, then that changes the game…

Maybe you can find out, but then surprise him at home with a baby outfit that is either blue or pink…  I even seen online where people fill a box with balloons that are either blue or pink – he can open it when he gets home.

I think if you are going to surprise him, then you need to keep your self busy so that you don’t spoil the surprise!   and Take pictures or video footage!!

I would do the sealed envelope– i would want us to find out together. But, if you can’t wait, I like the idea of your mom filming it, even if just on a cell phone or whatever. Then hopefully you could play it for him when he gets home, but if he really can’t wait, you can text/email it to him and he gets to watch and see your reaction at least. To me, your reaction is more priceless than a pink or blue onesie or balloon.

@mrshersch74:  The ballons are such a cute idea! I do like the PP’s suggestion of having the doc put it in an envelope so you can open it together at home, though.

Does he have a favorite band? How about a Onesie of his fave band along with a blue or pink bottle?

@mrshersch74:  Yeah, it stinks that he can’t be there!

I bet if it’s a boy it’s easy to see, but my Darling Husband was there with me and they only spent about 2 seconds showing us the gender. We did NOT see what in the world they saw that told them she was a girl, lol. I had the same expectation, that we would get to see lots of potty shots and feel convinced of the gender, but that didn’t happen for us. Actually, they did the whole ultrasound, which took a full 45-60 minutes because baby kept moving, without telling us the gender. The tech said, ok, I’m all done, just need to take the measurements to the doctor and then she’ll come talk to you. She left the room and hubby and I were like, “Whaaaa…. they never told us the gender!!!” When the doctor came in, she asked for a few more shots of various things and then asked if we wanted to know the gender. She literally moved the wand around for about 2 seconds and said, there, see that? Can you tell what baby is? We both said we had no idea! Both the tech and the doctor said, “It’s a girl”! I said really? Are you SURE?? They both said they were positive… but I still don’t feel sure because I didn’t see it. They printed out a photo of whatever they saw, but it means nothing to me… does not look like anything! Here’s a link to the photo, if you’re curious or are good at reading ulrasounds!!!! http://s109.photobucket.com/albums/n61/rfrutch/?action=view&current=GIRL.jpg

Maybe they could print out a photo for you though, to go in the envelope?? Then maybe you could have a gender reveal, just the two of you, then have your parents over for a second reveal?

@mrshersch74:  If ur mom is gonna be with you, maybe the doctor can give her envelope with the gender in it. Maybe SHE can do a cute reveal for both u and hubby. As for you seeing babys privates, most times the doc can take a picture of the babys privates and have ur mom hold on to that as well.

I think both of you finding out together is much more special.

If you don’t want to wait, and want a cutesy way to tell him, you could do a cake reveal! Get a white cake mix and dye it either pink or blue, and then coat it in an icing that won’t give the inside away, like chocolate, or cream cheese icing, whatever your husband prefers. When he cuts it open he’ll find out the gender 🙂 And it could keep you occupied while your waiting for him to come home! 

 

This is all assuming that you don’t hate cake… which would be sad 🙁

When you’re looking at an ultrasound girl parts will resemble a hamburger.  At least that’s what my friend’s OB told us when we went to her anatomy scan.

We asked the tech at the ultrasound to write it down and put it in an envelope.  We then took that to the bakery and had them make a cake with the color icing in the center.  I got that envelope out of my hands as quickly as I could so that I wouldn’t cheat and look inside.  You can make it that long and it is so worth finding out together!

You could have the tech put both a “potty shot” print-out and the gender (in case you can’t read the ultrasound pic) in the envelope.  Then you still get to see what you want but get to have the reveal with your Darling Husband.
