I'm just finding out about this kind of party. From what I understand is that a party is given to reveal what gender the baby is.
When did the gender of the baby get so important here in the US?
Anyone been to this kind of party?
Good Lord, no! Why is it important? When I was expecting and was asked what I wanted, I said "a baby"
I looked it up and found out that there is such a thing. I guess that came about when people were able to find out the gender at an early stage.
Live and learn.

Ummm...okay. That may be a little bit overboard.
Fishing for presents?
Funny you should say that, anneliese. The first time I saw the name was on a picture board on the net. A lady had knitted a bear, and had both a pink and blue bow on it.
The subject of the post was Gender Reveal.
At least I know what to do now, if I'm ever invited to a party.
It's just another way of saying: gimmie, gimmie, gimme, only in the right color.
I wonder if they will also have a traditional Baby Shower?
Good grief. This is as ridiculous to me as giving the new mother a "push" present. What's that, you ask? The new daddy is supposed to give mommie-kins some expensive present right after she pushes the kid out. Like diamond earrings or whatever. Because of course every new mother needs a pair of expensive earrings.
Gimme gimme gimme, indeed!
Oh my, I'm behind the times because I have not heard of a "push" present.DH owes me three diamond rings, some 50 years late. That ought to give me his best "roll eyes".
Well, my DM received a strand of pearls for my birth. She had a very rough 9 months and a C-section. Yup, I was trouble from day one!
But a party to reveal the gender is just nuts. It will be either one or the other and there is no return policy if you don't get the gender you wanted. Frankly, parents should not know before the big day. Just my opinion.
I thought you meant us. Since screen names can be so gender neutral. Sometimes.
If you are going to know beforehand and tell other people, I think it can be fun. The ones I know about, the parents don't know ahead of the party either. The doctor puts the answer in a closed envelope and that is handed over to a bakery to make a cake with the cake inside either being blue or pink.
The ones I know about where generally family affairs and no gifts involved. Just a fun party.
p.s....love the new edit feature!
