I asked a few friends why you would not find out. Here are some of the responses….
“There are few surprises in life”
“Life’s best surprise”
“Motivator for pushing” (omg–I never thought of that one!!)
“At the shower, we got all of the things we needed instead of the pink and blue clothes.” (wow–that one is awesome!)
Why would you find out??
-Hello pink or blue!! How fun to decorate the nursery gender specific?!?
-Isn’t it a surprise at 20 weeks?!?
-You can get all sweet pink or blue clothes washed and ready for babies arrival. Baby comes and you don’t have to worry about getting these details together.
Some fun ways to share the sex if you do find out at 20 weeks:
-Have the ultra sound technician put the results in an envelope and open it with your whole family.
-Give the envelope to the bakery and have them make you cupcakes with the inside pink or blue (who will bite into it first?…pretty sure I would take a bite into one as soon as I picked them up from the store).
-Have a reveal party. Have your guests wear the color (pink or blue) that they think you are going to have (you and daddy wear green or yellow). Then, have a grand reveal! Have guests bite into the cupcakes, release pink or blue balloons, or have grandparents open a gift with gender specific gift.
