Totally random, and just curious….
I was looking up some stuff to add into my blog about acronyms/terms, and came across this on webmd:
- Blue team – pregnant with a boy
- Pink team – pregnant with a girl
- Green team – want to find out sex before delivery
- Yellow team – waiting to find out sex until delivery
- Plaid Team – Twins, one boy and one girl.
- Purple Team – You know the gender, but aren’t telling!
Is there a word missing? What’s the difference between the 2?

It’s always been my understanding that Team Green means not finding out the gender until delivery. I’ve never heard of Team Yellow, or anything besides Pink, Blue and Green.

Same here. I thought green meant not finding out but according to what you posted it looks like it means haven’t found out yet. I have never heard of the other ones. But maybe different websites have different lingo. I prefer green to yellow in general as a color so when people ask I say team green 🙂

@iheartnerds: +1. I’ve only heard of pink, blue and green.

I’m not sure but yellow/green mean the same thing only green is more a US term and yellow is more european/UK term? I’m from UK and we always say ‘yellow bump’ which means you don’t know the gender but I’ve seen green too on forums and thought it meant the same thing but just a different term for it.

I like the Team Purple idea 🙂 and Plaid is a cute term too. I hadn’t heard of either before though 🙂
My first impression on the difference when I read the green and yellow (as defined above) was that they were saying – yellow was not knowing by choice AND green was when you wanted to know but the US couldn’t tell you? But I could be wrong.

Ooh I like the specifications, but never heard of the last 3!

I actually really like team purple, though I’ve never heard of it before!
I think the difference in teams green and yellow is that with green, you find out right before delivery, and with yellow, you don’t find out until after delivery. (At least, I think that’s what it means by the listing above).

@pmerr: Could also mean, on that list green = want to find out, but it’s too early at this point?

Team purple – I would be worried about slipping up, or family members harassing us into telling!

Team Green as defined here doesn’t really make sense, because if you want to find out… why wouldn’t you? Does this only apply to people who would normally find out but are living without any medical technology? 😛

@stillme: well, sometimes they can’t tell on the scan. Here in the UK, they don’t give you an extra scan after your 20 week appt, and if they didn’t see anything clearly at the anomaly scan, you’re out of luck unless you want to pay extra for a gender scan. This happened to a friend of mine.

@UK Bride: True! Good point. So I guess this limited group is “team green.”

@stillme: I know we would have been “Team Green”, because our little one had her legs crossed for our whole anatomy scan. Luckily, I’m crazy, and we went for another ultrasound…so we’re Team Pink.
