  • I know its exciting to find out but maybe you could explain to your doctor that your DH is coming back and push back your ultra sound date so your DH can go, I think Honestly that would probably be the biggest surprise of all for him getting to share that experience with you :)

    If you cant push it back ask if they can record it for you, we did that with my oldest and I still have it on VHS, I was able to let our family get to see it and you can even hear my DH's reaction when we found out it was a boy lol.

  • you can have the dr not tell you and write it on a paper and put it in an envelope and open it together

  • Aw yeah i like her idea.. or if you wait to find out the sex too and then schedule another ultrasound for when he's back... being to see his baby and share the memory with you will be really special...

    or buy some sort of new born clothing that says daddy's little princess or like little football star or what ever.. like some type of thing to represent him being a dad to a boy or a girl

  • Saw this in a movie - Next of Kin I think. Have a romantic dinner and have a teddy bear guest with a pink or blue ribbon bow tie.
