Our Baby's Gender Reveal

By Angel Macaraig - Sunday, March 06, 2022

It was January 15, 2022 (PJ's birthday) when I had my second ultrasound at around 5 months of my pregnancy. I was so thrilled to go to the clinic because, at that point, there was a big chance already that we will find out about our baby's gender. 


The clinic staff handed me my ultrasound printout and results, including an envelope where the gender result was enclosed and sealed. Unfortunately, the clinic staff inserted the wrong printout, and the actual printout of the gender result was attached to my other results. Although I found out about the gender in advance accidentally, I kept the gender to myself for about a month as I still wanted to push through with the gender reveal party.



Fast forward to February 20, 2022, we held the party alongside my father and sister's birthday celebration (LOL, tipid!). The major challenge for me was to prepare the backdrop for this event. We initially wanted to DIY as it was cheaper to buy balloons thru Shopee or Lazada. I placed my order last January, but my order took longer than expected so we decided to just find a supplier for the backdrop and skip the hassle of setting up our own.

Since we just wanted a simple celebration, I looked for an affordable supplier and just set my budget to Php 4,000 or less. Luckily, I found Happy Hands Events thru Facebook Marketplace. Thank you, Happy Hands Events for the beautiful backdrop. 

We also ordered a cake from our go-to cake shop, Daniel's Bakeshop. They have been our trusted cake supplier from birthday to wedding cakes, so it was a no-brainer to purchase our gender reveal cake from them. Thank you Daniel's Bakeshop for the pretty cake.


Suprise! It's a GIRL! As if you didn't see it on my FB post... LOL!

I still look surprised though despite knowing the gender in advance. Actually, it was my happy face as I really wanted a baby girl. Ngiting tagumpay! haha!

Acting surprised? 🤣🤣🤣

It was really a happy day for us! Most of my fam and friends are "team boy", but sorry guys, we're having a girl! TBH, our baby's gender isn't such a big deal for us. Since the start of my pregnancy, I have been only praying for one thin
— a healthy baby.

Thank you, Lord, for the best gift ever. Can't wait to meet your precious gift. 


What's next? We'll finalize our baby girl's name. 😀
