I go in for my big sono on the 23rd and my hubby can't be there. This is his first and probably only so I am pretty sad he can't make it but with our schedules we have to do it this way. My sister is coming instead and she is very excited. So besides her and my doc I want Ryan to be the next to know gender and he won't want to wait until he gets home that evening. Do any of you know of a cute way to let him know the gender? I am thinking I may just take a pic of the sono and have them type it in and send that to him.

My dh was deployed with our first, so when I found out I went to the store and bought blue socks, took a picture with a ton of exclamations and smileys to email to him. I got to see him on the webcam when he saw it which was great.

Buy a little pink or blue outfit and send him a picture of that!

I would totally make him suck it up and wait so you could surprise him! There are so many fun things you could do to make it a fun surprise. I seen an idea where they put blue or pink filling inside of a cupcake so you had to bite into it to find out. Or you could wrap a boy or girl outfit up and let him open it. Could you meet him for lunch after the ultrasound so you could surprise him sooner than waiting for him to get home?

What of you DON'T find out? Have the ultrasound tech write it down an put it in an envelope... then open it together!

If you have a cell phone that takes videos? If so you could always have your sister record the us at the point of the gender showing (or the entire us) then send it to him via video message (like you do a pic message). I am taking my video camera on my us date (Sept 20) then going to show it to dh on sunday when I go to see him (he is out of town).

What kind of job does he have? If it's more of a lax enviroment send him balloons or something pink/blue themed. Or you could even go get something and drop it off yourself.

Thanx for all of the ideas! I kinda like putting it in the envelope to find out together but there are some others to consider too! No matter what, my sis will know the sex she is a family practice doc who delivers but she can keep it secret til we know. My DH works with heavy equipment wherever he is told to go so lunch or sending him something is probably out but really thank you for the ideas!
