Oh thank God there is a new trend in parties we can throw for pregnant women!
I was really starting to worry about party planners. I was beginning to think they were hurting for business. I mean how were they earning their keep once kids didn't need elaborate first birthday parties or potty parties anymore?
I was also so concerned for those pregnant moms out there who were feeling like they weren't getting quite enough attention. Let's see, they peed on a stick and posted the results on Youtube, had a gender reveal party where they released doves that had been dyed pink or blue into the sky and a boring old baby shower (everyone and their grandmother had a baby shower!). These pregnant moms were suffering from lack of adoration and needed a little pick me up.
Lucky for pregnant moms the party planners have been working over time on a new idea. There is a new party in town.
The Ultrasound Party! That's right, girls! Just pay your local ultrasound technician a cool $350 to come to your house and show everyone your unborn heir on the big screen. Pour some drinks for your closest friends, family and random cousins and gel up that belly so that everyone can say, "Is that a foot?" and "Wait, what am I looking at exactly?"
Before I get invited to one of these shin digs I just have some questions for the hostess that I need to get out the way:
What does the cake look like? I hope not a fetus. I won't be able to eat that and I love cake.
What am I supposed to do with my keepsake photo of your unborn child? I can barely keep track of the ultrasound pics of my own kids.
Really? You framed the keepsake photo of your unborn child? For everyone?
Do I need to bring a gift? And if so, what? Wasn't the shower gift I gave you enough? And the gender reveal party gift? Remember, I had to bring a girl gift and a boy gift because we didn't know what the baby was either until you released the doves?
Oh, one more thing. I was supposed to get my IUD checked by ultrasound a few months ago and I didn't it done. Could I just pay your tech under the table and have her check me real quick?
