How did you tell people the sex of your baby?

Did you just tell them or do it some special way? 

For us, we had the ultrasound tech put the sex in an envelope and then we took the envelope to a bakery and asked the baker to put pink icing in the middle of the cake if it was a girl and blue if it was a boy. 

We threw a party and invtied about 30 of our friends. They all watches us cut the cake to find pink icing!! It was so neat and surprising. I loved it. 

Unfortunatly my mum is in Australia so she couldn't join us but we had her on skype when we were cutting the cake lol


How did you tell friends and family?

That's cute.  :D 

Being that I don't think gender is really a surprise since it's either or...  I just gave folks a phone  call so they know what color to buy.  LOL

I saw that in Food Network magazine this month, I thought it was so neat. I may do that next time! I just told everyone when I found out, nothing special.

My mom was with me at the doctor appointment when I found out. And since she makes AT&T look like 2 cans on a string, I never had to say a word. Everyone probably knew before I was even dressed lol

Umm... I don't remember how I told my parents with my oldest! lol I think I just called her, everyone else we just called.

My second my mom was babysiting so when we came home we told her.  And then we posted it on Facebook so everyone else knew.

That's so cute! We had family in the room when we found out with my daughter. With my son, we didn't announce the pregnancy until I was 16 weeks pregnant, at thanksgiving. It was our first year in the house so we had the whole family over and I excused myself from the table and brought back a bundle of blue balloons with one that said "It's a boy!"  Our kids are only 13 months apart, so people just thought I hadn't lost all of the weight from the first baby. They were all pretty shocked but it was exciting to be able to surprise everyone like that!
