That's why, after two different ultrasound technicians felt confident that they could identify the gender a little earlier than the typical 20 weeks (I'm 17 weeks along), we asked them to write down their finds...without telling us what they saw! And we got busy planning our first gender reveal party!
With a great deal of help from my mom, mother-in-law, and sister-in-law, our dessert table turned out cute. The cupcake toppers were pink bows for the girl side and mustaches for the boy side. We also had chocolate dipped pretzels, M&M cookies, chocolate covered graham crackers (which were so pretty!), and a variety of pink and blue candy. For lunch we served pizza.
We asked our guests to wear pink or blue to represent their guess for the baby's gender. About 60% of our guests wore blue, 30% wore pink, and the other 10% wore both colors (cheaters!) I wore blue - mostly because I felt that if the ultrasound techs were so confident, it must be a boy. Michael wore pink - he's been claiming it's a girl from the very beginning.
And now, without further ado...
GIRL!!!! (Unless something changes of course....lol!)
