Sooo for those of you who don’t know…my wife is pregnant with child #2! Yay!
After waaay too much guessing, speculating, and silly urban legend myths we finally found out the sex of our baby!
Gender Reveal Ideas:
As you probably know there are a ton of gender reveal videos out there. Actually I personally had no idea this was such a big thing until we started searching for gender reveal ideas.
Pinterest & YouTube are littered with them.
We wanted to do something a little different with ours.
In most gender reveal videos the Mom and Dad are finding out at the same time as everyone else – you know…the blue or pink cake, the box that opens with either blue or pink balloons etc.
Our situation had a bit of twist. It turns out that the scheduled doctor appointment visit (the one where you’re far enough along that they can tell you the sex of your baby) got moved up a week.
We decided not to tell our friends and family about this.
Instead we decided to document the entire experience by filming it and creating a special video in which the gender would be revealed at the end.
So after many hours of shooting video and even more hours of editing we finally had our
Oscar family worthy surprise video completed.
It was now time to visit the fam.
Most everyone in our family knows I’m always making some sort of video for the blog, my training site or something silly with our daughter. So it’s not unusual to ask for a quick view on the latest video.
So in a very nonchalant tone we simply said, “Hey guys check out this video”…
Some figured out what was going on after the first 5 seconds.
Others got the hint a little further into it.
The anticipation and suspense caused one family member to faint. No, not really. But wouldn’t that have been awesome!?
Sooo, what is it you ask? Well…you’ll have to watch and see for yourself…
