A bunch of my very close friends are expecting babies between now and May and it seems like I'm seeing a Facebook pregnancy announcement every few days. Though Jesse & I opted not to find out the sex of our baby before the birth, most people I know choose to find out in advance. Just the other night, I got a photo from a pregnant friend, grinning ear-to-ear and wearing a pink pashmina (I assume the blue one, not needed, was just out of frame).
In this Pinterest age, "Gender Reveals" are becoming more and more of an event and there's one thing that really gets under my skin. I HATE seeing gender reveals where people open a box and pink or blue balloons fly away. I get so fired up when I see these on Facebook or other blogs (poor Jesse has heard this rant a million times). Releasing balloons into the sky, no matter how nicely it photographs, is littering and terrible for the earth. The sea turtles, you guys!!
So here are some sweet and turtle-friendly ideas for your gender reveal that don't involve balloons:
How did you share the news? A full on party? Sharing via email or Facebook? Phone calls to your closest family and friends? Or did you wait, like us, and have your man head out to the waiting room with a simple "It's a boy!"? Let us know!
