Parents expecting a new baby may wonder about the gender. After 20 weeks, a sonogram might reveal the gender of the baby if the baby cooperates with the sonographer. Once the parents know the gender of the baby, they may look for creative and fun ways to tell family and friends the good news,

Gender Cake

In June 2009, Anna and Josh Duggar, oldest son and daughter-in-law to Jim Bobb and Michelle Duggar of "19 Kids & Counting!," used a gender cake to share their news with family. The bakery shop made the cake layers pink to let everyone know the couple's first baby would be a girl. According to the Today Show story, the couple didn't know the answer until they cut into the cake.

Voice Mail Message

Put the news on your voice mail and allow family members to dial in to get the news.

Social Media Announcement

Use your social media page to spread the news. Let your family log in and check your wall. You could post a sonogram picture with an arrow pointing to the sexual features. Your family members may spread the news for you or call in with congratulations.

Photoshop a sonogram picture and add little bows to your unborn daughter's head or add sports equipment to the womb for your future slugger to play with prior to birth. You might tint the amniotic fluid pink or blue and send out a viral e-mail to family and friends or post to your social media pages.

Parent's T-shirt

Announce your little one's gender on a pregnancy tee. You could print a sonogram picture on a blue or pink tee for a subtle announcement.

Invite your family and friends to "Welcome our newest family member!" in a more creative manner with a celebration T-shirt. Decorate a regular tee with pink bows, ballerina tutus, dolls and other little girl's gear. For a little boy, you might decorate the shirt with toy cars, blocks, sports equipment, snakes and frogs. Your family and friends are sure to figure out the gender from your choice in decorative items.

Sibling T-shirt

Invite your older children to help spread the news about the new baby. Dress your older children in announcement tees. Place a picture of the older child with the slogan, "I'm the big brother/sister" on the shirt. Under big brother or sister's picture, add a sonogram picture of the new baby with the slogan, "I'm the little brother!"
