Baby shower ideas


My wonderful friend has decided that she wants to throw me a baby shower.
It wont be for a good long while but that is no reason why I cant plan away.

There is a really cool idea I had never head of before untill reading this post on "This Mama Makes Stuff."

Its about having an "Its a..." party. The idea is that when you go for the 19 week ultrasound you get the doctor to write the gender of the baby on a piece of paper and seals it in an envelope.

At the party you get your guests to tie pink or blue wool or ribbon round their bellies to guess whether they think the small one will be a boy or a girl. At the end of the party you announce and everyone gets surprised at once.

Those who guess correctly get a prize.

I don't think I have Myl sold on the idea but I think it's a pretty good one.

P.S If you would like to guess the gender already I've got a poll on the left hand side that you can vote on!

I have friends who did their baby showers this way- what a great idea! BUT with that said, I've been waiting long enough (22 weeks, 3 ultrasounds, and we STILL don't know). I have another ultrasound next week, and if they can tell me the sex, I will NOT have the strength to wait any longer.
With that said, if you think you can do it, DO ITTT!
