Ultrasound Party: Would you hold one?
An ultrasound party is exactly how it sounds, a party centered around the expectant mom's ultrasound session.
Some people are blasting it for being another example of this generation's penchant for oversharing, while some are embracing it. I'm embarassed to say that I'm part of the latter group:p
Thanks to improved ultrasound technology, parents-to-be can now invite friends and family to share in an intimate viewing of baby in utero.
With the exception of two women in lab coats and a buzzing console next to the chaise lounge, the Enderles' party was like any other family gathering. Drinks, snacks, friendly banter. Once the machine was ready, though, Kimberly asked husband Jonathon to corral the guests around the two monitors and hit the lights.
It's usually just me, my OB (a.k.a. my mom) and the baby daddy during my ultrasound session. Baduy!
Ok, but hear me out first.
My friends and I are always up for any excuse to get together, gab and enjoy good food in each other's company. And an ultrasound party seems just as good an event as any to get together.
Would you like some champagne while checking out the baby? I know I would:p
Of course, I don't imagine that the actual ultrasound will go on for 30 minutes or so because really, even as a first-time parent, I have to admit it gets boring after a few minutes:p
So what I have in mind is a party with my favorite people in attendance, bottles of bubbly (but only water for the mommy), yummy food, delectable dessert and lots and lots of laughter. The ultrasound bit will only be secondary to the general merriment pervading the occasion.
Good idea right? :)
