2. Chewing Gum

Your mother may have told you it’s impolite to snap and pop your gum, but this is one occasion that’s different. You and your partner each chew a piece of pink or blue gum and be sure to leave the last bubble standing to show off your baby’s gender!

5. Painting Party

You’ll need help for this one. Ask a family member or friend you trust who won’t spill the beans early, to blindfold you and your partner. Then go to town with a bottle of blue or pink paint. Remove your blindfolds for the great surprise!

7.  Special Package

Ask your doctor not to tell you the gender of your baby, but to clearly mark it on your ultrasound picture. Then, take your photo to a department store where you’ll pick out 2 outfits, 1 boy and 1 girl. Ask the clerk to ring you up for whichever outfit matches your ultrasound picture. No peeking at the receipt! Then pick a special time to open your package, either alone with your partner or with family and friends. Be sure to have someone catch your reaction on film!
