Because I’m so “old” we’ve been through a lot of extra tests with this pregnancy. One of them was the Harmony chromosome test at 11 weeks. Apparently, when they check the chromosomes from a simple blood draw they can also tell whether those chromosomes are XX or XY (boy or girl) very very early in your pregnancy.
When we told our friends and family a couple weeks ago that we are pregnant we decided to wait to tell them the gender. I don’t know why. Just for funnies.
But then it became too difficult to keep the secret and our daughter really wanted to know.
Being “old” and techy we knew a big gender reveal with balloons and / or cake a la Pinterest was not for us.
Instead we had our friend Precious design a cute iPhone wallpaper and we showed that to Charlie.
She can’t read so it had to be pretty obvious.
Here’s what the graphic looked like…
This is how we do
We are super excited to share with you what we’re having and how Charlie found out. Just 159 sleeps to go.
