TMT Gender Reveal – It’s A Girl

It’s the TMT gender reveal! – It’s a girl

 

I thought about doing a fancy gender reveal and honestly, we decided that we didn’t want to make such a big fuss! So instead I thought I would write a post about our scan and then share some of my favorite gender reveals that I have seen instead!

What most people forget is that the gender scan is also the anomaly scan which means there was definitely some natural apprehension going in because it starts to determine any abnormalities with growth, organs or conditions. The level of detail available at the scan was so much clearer than even 5 years ago and some of the things we got to see were:

  • All four heart chambers (including blood flow) – to check for holes and make sure it is beating and functioning properly
  • The placenta – We also got to see all three vessels through the placenta at a cross section
  • All four limbs/fingers/toes etc
  • The tibia – and measured leg length
  • The brain/head – measuring the cerebellum
  • Both kidneys
  • The stomach and checked for fluid (that’s a good thing)
  • The spine

and then of course, we found out it was a girl! – there is no doubt about it, we got a pretty graphic angle. This came as a shock to us because we have a little boy and we had convinced ourselves that there was no way it was a girl as they are less common in both of our families. Well clearly we were wrong and after a brief panic we realised we would have one of each (and that we were diving into the unknown again!)

So far the shopping has been great because we have to buy all new baby clothes (it’s been a while since the last one) and we are reading up on some of the differences between boys and girls and although it is a little daunting we managed to keep the other one alive so I think we will be okay! (i’mΒ sure I will let you know in a few frenzied “SOS” type posts if not!)

Just because we didn’t want to do a big gender reveal it doesn’t mean I don’t think they are a fun idea so with that in mind I thought I would share 5 of my favorites that I have seen! (if you have a gender reveal you want to share then pop it in the comments and I’ll expand my list!!)

5 Of My Favorite Gender Reveals

    Congratulations! Girls are wonderful. I have two daughters. I enjoy seeing the gender reveals on Facebook. They weren’t a thing when I had children.

  • Such an exciting time Charlotte however I’m sure like everyone you just want a healthy baby. At least you only have to think about a girl’s name. My daughter And her husband decided not to find out before the birth. Everyone is different.

    First off, congratulations!!! Secondly, I can’t believe I didn’t think to do a video gender reveal!!! It’s such a great idea. We had the worst time trying to get a surprise look through photography, and I think I’ll have to try one of these the second time around!

    Congratulations dear Charlotte. My first was a girl followed by a boy and then another boy. That was before ultrasounds were routine and we did not know the gender until the birth. How things have changed. How ever it happens it is a wonderful new life miracle.

    Congratulations on your new addition! I’m a boy mom myself and have loved the responsibility of raising a member of the next generation of men. I’m also still a toddler mom, so I’m not sure that I’m ready to go through it all again (just yet or ever)!

    how fun! I am currently working on a gender reveal post myself. We had a boy in September, and out reveal was me and my husband blindfolded and handed squeeze bottles of paint. It ended up being blue paint in ours, it was messy and fun.

    Oh, congratulations! This is so exciting for you! The videos are super cute. I have a friend’s baby shower coming up and she keeps telling me how excited she is to do a gender reveal first, I can’t wait to see what it is!

    I love watching ginger reveals I always get excited to even if I don’t know the couple. I wish gender reveal’s were thing back when my babies were little or before they were born but that was so long ago it really wasn’t a thing to reveal the gender besides saying oh it’s a boy or a it’s a girl .

    Love how people do those gender reveal parties nowadays! They can be really creative and cute and a fun time – but I also see keeping it simple. Lots of choices now!
