My thoughts on hosting a gender reveal with baby #2 wasn’t even a choice! I wanted one with Angelo but it wasn’t possible due to all the pressure I was already put under finding out I was pregnant and a bride to be.
In the mist of planning a wedding I wasn’t in the mood to plan a gender reveal as well or put my mother or anyone else close to me to do so. My mother was my “wedding planner” and granted every wish/detail I wanted plus more. That woman is amazing and seriously does anything to make her kids happy. I had a total of 300 guest at my wedding; don’t ask me why. I regretted it the day of, but my family is huge plus my husbands and friends. It was amazing regardless. Everyone had the time of their lives which made me really appreciative of all the hard work my mom pulled off.
Any who back to the idea of hosting this very special day. I get off track easily haha. The idea of a gender reveal for baby #2 was a must. Our families were anxious to know the sex from the start that I announced I was pregnant. My in laws were desperatly hoping a girl because there are none in the family. My husband only has a brother and most of their cousins are boys. The men in their family have only had babyboys and the women as well. My family were also routing for a girl this time. Although most thought it be another boy lol. Everyone was just excited and ready to welcome a little fashionista to the family.
The choice of revealing the gender was a baseball theme. We planned for it to be hosted at a baseball field that my husband plays at. We were only doing a gathering with family and close friends. I was on the hunt for a custom baseball made with the color of the gender inside to reveal. My husband would bat the “ball” and it would explode in the air with either pink or blue. I came across a Etsy shop who was able to make this happen. I will link her shop down below for anyone interested! She makes golf balls as well. Plans became switched up and we ended up hosting the reveal at my mothers boyfriend buisness, which worked out regardless.
WHO KNEW THE GENDER?
The idea was to keep the gender a surpise for both my husband and I. We had a constant battle of bets on the gender lol. I was sure it was a girl and he was sure a boy. He wanted another boy.
The day of the ultrasound he didn’t even give me the chance to tell the sonographer “please place the gender in an envelope” 🙄😑. Right at the time when she asked was because the baby was postioned with legs open! She said well daddy you are having….. “A GIRL”!!!
I didn’t act surprised and just screamed out “I told you so”! He was in shock! He couldn’t believe it haha. It was funny to watch.
We sat in our car and promised not to tell anyone until the reveal party. I did tell my bestfriend, because she was initially suppose to make the baseball for me.
That day came. We wore denim/blue not to throw people off but because it was the only shirt that actually fit me correctly lol. I wore a PinkBlush maternity top that was so comfortable. He wore denim and sneakers. We got in postion and finally revealed the gender to our new baby bug. In fact girl and in fact our families were filled with joy! You can see for yourselves in the video down below. Haha
So all of my kids names have been picked out since I met my husband 10 years ago and I’ve always only wanted two children; boy and girl. Angelo Armani is my son and now for this little lady I am able to give the name Scarlett Rose.
I can’t wait to hold her in November. ❤

Hi dolls! This beautiful floral printed maternity maxi from PinkBlush Maternity is one of my very first maternity pieces. This 3/4 sleeve maxi is seriously probably the most comfortable piece of clothing in my wardrobe at the moment. This baby has mama growing at the speed of light and it is no joke! I can seriously say by the second month of pregnancy I outgrew anything from the waist down. This has been a great surprise since with my first it was completely different.
The material on this maxi is polyester mixed with spandex which helps with a growing belly and should fit throughout my entire pregnancy. The most amazing part is I could use this dress right after pregnancy for nursing! It is a wrap dress so the top is very flexible to nurse in for the simple fact it has a v-neckline. Although it has a 3/4 sleeve the material feels and is very breathable which is great for these hot summer days in Florida.
You can purchase this comfy maxi here! Mine was a size small. If you have a bigger bust I would size up. I don’t believe you have to be carrying in order to wear this piece because it seriously would look great on anyone!
PinkBlush and I have collaborated to host a giveaway of a $75 gift card to all my readers. Please head on over to my Instagram account @deearivett for all info to enter 😊. (This giveaway is open to everyone)
