Pregnant? Fun ideas for revealing the gender of your baby


Got to the stage when your skinny jeans are starting to get a BIT tight? Your baby belly is starting to show, and people are asking “Is it a BOY or is it a GIRL”? Well, this week’s Crave Maternity blog post comes to you from one of our twitter friends @EmmaJaneKaye who is expecting her first child in November.

We asked Emma – How did you reveal the gender of your baby to your friends and family?

“Finding out whether my baby was a boy or a girl has to be one of the most exciting milestones of my pregnancy. I was counting down the days from FOUR weeks pregnant!”

I wanted my family to experience the same excitement as me, rather than calling them over the phone telling them boy or girl! So I decided on a ‘cake reveal party’!

We decided to make a blue sponge cake and a pink sponge cake, iced the same to not give any clues away, and then with a drumroll, cut a big slice out of the relevant cake, in front of all the family!

It was PINK! and a baby girl 😀 everyone was so happy when they saw our pink sponge!

I’m no pro baker girls, but found this such an exciting way to show my friends if we had a little boy or girl and I know they loved it too!

If you have a fun idea for revealing the gender of your baby to friends and family, do tell us your story on our facebook page or our google+ page.
