Tomorrow is 2 weeks from the gender ultrasound. I am getting overly impatient!! I cannot wait!!!!! My family is divided, my IL's believe the elf is a boy, and my side believes the elf is a girl. I want a boy, and my in laws have taken this position because of the ultrasound pic, and my MIL guessed ALL of the grandchildren, so she's either super lucky, or she knows her stuff. Then on the other side, my sister HOPES for a girl, lol, and my "bf" (don't really feel I can call her that anymore) believes that she is psychic and just knows what it is. I hope she's wrong. There is nothing wrong with the belief in real psychics, but if your only ability is to tell the gender of your friends baby, then I think I can call your bluff. She's been driving me crazy too, so for ONCE I am siding with the in laws.
I decided to have a gender reveal party since my baby shower will be smaller. I invited woman, men, and children. It's like 30 people, which is way more than I expected. At first no one responded and I had already felt like no one cared, and now I can't get them to stop! I'm having colored popcorn, deviled eggs, chocolate covered pretzels (if I can find someone to make it), yogurt cups with fruit, cupcakes, and cookies. (all in pink and blue.) The guests are to wear pink or blue depending on their vote. I'm going to have them put ideas for names in a box, advice for a specific gender, and their favorite memory of DH or I depending on what gender team they are on. I also want to take a picture with everyone holding either lips or mustache on a stick, lol. To reveal, I'm going to have it written on my belly, I'm a ____. But for my mom and possibly the MIL, I am separating them. My mom wanted me to do an ultrasound pic with either DH or my face on it to show gender, so I'm going to surprise her with a card and have that inside. Something special for her that she isn't expecting. I'll probably post the card and stuff on FB to reveal to everyone else after the party. I don't know how I'm going to keep my mouth shut from that Weds to Friday night. Everyone feels like you owe them something. My sister wants me to tell her weds because she did with hers, but if she slips it will piss the hell out of my MIL and the group. I'm also worried that I'm going to slip, . I feel like I might be a little sad if it's a girl, and might not be as excited for this party, I know that will be a sign, but I don't think anyone will pick up on it but me. My DH will be super excited though. I love girls, but I wanted my little boy. We have so many nieces already.
AHHHHHHH!!! COME ON 2 WKS!!!
