Cupid’s Advice:

Your little bundle of joy is about to make his/her grand entrance into the world pretty soon. Yet, you still haven’t decided on whether or not to keep the gender a surprise, or let your loved ones know before the big day arrives. Cupid is here to help:

1. Come to an agreement: Before you make any decisions, you and your partner need to talk about what you both have in mind first. You need to figure out how and when you’ll reveal the news to your family and friends. While you may be ready to share the gender information as soon as possible, your significant other may want to wait a little while longer – hence the need for a discussion.

2. Can’t contain the excitement: You’re ready for all of your loved ones to hear the exciting baby news. It’s OK to spill the beans if you just can’t keep quiet about it anymore – as long as your significant other is cool with it as well.

3. They already suspect: You might not have done a good job covering your tracks when it comes to keeping the gender of your baby a secret. Have you been doing a little last minute shopping with some of your friends? Have they noticed you’ve been buying more pinks than blues, or vice versa? If this is the case, you might as well let everyone know the deal – your family and friends probably already know by now anyway.
