One of the most exciting things for us, if not the most exciting thing during pregnancy is finding out the baby’s gender.
Hey, how are you doing? What a week we’ve just had. Thanks for coming to our blog, today we’re sharing with you how we found out and revealed the gender of our baby due this June!
What an exciting day it was, we vlogged the whole thing so we could watch it back in years to come and share with you lot how it all went down.
At 17 weeks and a couple of days, we booked in for a private gender scan with Ultrasound Direct: Baby Bond based in Mothercare, Leeds. It was £50 and well worth the money. If we were reviewing Baby Bond they would be getting a 10/10 rating for sure. Their entire service was excellent and they were all so friendly and as you’ll hear later in our reveal, they played their part too.
On the day of the gender scan, we were 17 weeks 6 days.
Our scan wasn’t until 5:20pm so we had all day to wait around. We decided what we’d do is go out and buy something to symbolize a boy and something to symbolize a girl, to make things more exciting. We bought a little ‘It’s A Boy’ balloon and a cute little comforter teddy thing, and the same items but for a girl.
We then left the items at home with some wrapping paper and set off for the scan. To make the whole thing more exciting for ourselves and for a baby gender reveal video, we planned for the sonographer to find out our baby’s gender but not to tell us at the scan. Instead, the lovely sonographer who played her part perfectly, sent a text from my phone to my sister revealing the baby’s gender. My sister’s job was to then wrap up the correct items we’d bought earlier ready for us to unwrap and reveal once we returned home.
It all worked perfectly and made the entire experience much more exciting and fun. We loved filming the whole thing and really loved the excitement that built throughout the day and continued the entire journey home from the scan.
Typically it took us twice as long as usual to get home after the scan with traffic. My sister was the only person that knew the gender of our baby for a good couple of hours before even we knew! The way home was amazing, we were so excited to get back and reveal what we were having.
Once we finally returned home we found the wrapped present and gave it to Corben to open. He tore open the wrapping paper to reveal that…
