Baby Gender Reveal Party Decor & Details

Good Morning everyone, Blake and I are so excited to finally share that we’re going to have a baby boy in April 2020. Even though Blake and I were convinced that it was a girl, we truly had no clue what the gender was. My assistant picked up the results from the doctor after I took a blood test and she was a vault for weeks. She wouldn’t even give us any kind of hints! I’m sure you could tell by my reaction that I was truly surprised.  You can watch the full video below on my YouTube channel. The video includes the gender reveal party along some fun interviews and behind the scenes action.

Old Wives Tales

On the day of the party, I listed some old wives tales gender prediction below for fun on my Instagram stories and took a poll. 70% of you said girl and 30% of you said boy! You can read through all of the old wives tales below:

  1. Extreme nausea means girl! I experienced plenty of that! In fact, I threw up every day for 6 weeks straight with all-day nausea!

  2. Adult acne means girl! I only experienced this from week 5 to week 9, but it has been fine since then!

  3. Graceful means girl! Clumsy means boy! Honestly I’m always clumsy
  4. Face weight gain means girl! I don’t personally see this, but others told me they think my face looks fuller!

  5. Craving salty means boy! Craving sweet means girl! Honestly, my only cravings been pasta, Chick-fil-A, apples and ranch (not all together) so idk what that means! Maybe boy?

  6. Moody means girl! Calm means boy! If anything I’ve been way more controlling than I normally I am, but I think that’s because I’m not used to having zero control over my body so I’m just trying to control everything else!
  7. Carrying high means girl! Carrying low means boy! I’m still only a little over 14 weeks so I kind of just feel bloated all over!

  8. Chinese calendar said girl!

  9. Fetal heart beat rate over 150 means girl and under means boy! At 7 weeks the heart rate was 142 and then at 9.5 weeks it was 179! So who knows!

All of these old wives tales are just for fun! In the end, we’re just excited for a baby no matter the gender!

Blake wore blue so we could we represent both genders, but his guess was a girl!

I can’t believe I’m going to be a boy mom! It’s so ironic because everyone who knows me knows that I’m such a girly girl so all you boy moms out there, your knowledge and experience is welcomed!  I’m not worried about Blake though, he was always meant to be a dad! He actually lost his dad when he was young so I’m glad that he still gets to experience that father-son relationship he so deserves! We can’t wait to meet our baby boy to give him all the love we have to offer and more!

These are the exact confetti cannons we used: Gender Reveal Confetti Cannons Package & Gender Reveal Confetti Cannon Bundle

My assistant tested them out at her home first to make sure they worked and were the correct color!

We played around with the confetti in the yard for a while before hosing it all off! It is biodegradable, but there are still a few pieces floating around the backyard! LOL
