Finding out the sex of your baby ranks among the most anticipated moments in your life. Whether you find out at your obstetrician's office or in the labour and delivery room, it's sure to be a special moment. Spreading the news can be just as exciting and there are various ways you can reveal your baby's gender to family and friends.
The Baby Cake
Announce the gender of your baby with the help of a cake. Have your doctor write the sex of your baby on a piece of paper and let him seal it in an envelope. Bring the envelope to a bakery and have them make baby gender cake. If the baby is a boy, the baker will make the inside of the cake blue. If it is a girl, the inside of the cake will be pink. The outside of the cake will be gender-neutral; either white, or pink and blue. Invite friends and family over for the cutting of the cake and revealing of the baby's sex.
Have custom fortune cookies made to disclose your baby's sex. Provide the cookie company with the text you want to appear in the fortune cookies. It can be as simple as "It's a boy" or "It's a girl". Make the cookies as extravagant as desired; they can be chocolate or caramel-dipped, sprinkled with confetti and individually wrapped. Throw a party for friends and family and have everyone open their fortune cookie at the same time to find out the sex of your baby.
Instead of finding out the sex of your baby in a doctor's office, create a more personal setting. Have your doctor write down the sex of your baby and seal it in an envelope. Make a dinner date with your partner at your favourite restaurant and bring the sealed envelope with you. Open the envelope over dinner to discover whether you're having a boy or a girl.
Throw a Party
Send out invitations to your friends and family. Instruct them to dress in pink if they think that the baby is a girl and in blue if they suspect the baby is a boy. Have your doctor write down the sex of the baby on a piece of paper and seal it in an envelope. Guests will be eager to find out whether their suspicions of the baby's sex were right. Open the envelope and celebrate.
