Trevor and I both searched online for different, fun ways to do a gender reveal and we both came up with 3 that we liked. In our list of 3, only 1 overlapped on both our lists and that was spraying each other with water guns either filled with blue or pink paint. So, that's what we decided to do. We also decided that we wanted to find out when everyone else did, so we were not going to find out at the doctor's office.
I had a doctor's appointment on the day I turned 17 weeks pregnant. We weren't sure if we would be able to tell then, so we didn't plan our gender reveal too many days ahead of time. The appointment was on Wednesday and we did our reveal the following day.
I had ordered the water guns on Amazon a couple days before and after our appointment we went and bought pink and blue paint, since we weren't sure which one we'd need. We sent out a text message on Wednesday right after our appointment to family and LifeGroup and we're just excited to have whoever could make it there.
Here are some fun photos of the reveal!

After the reveal we went inside and ate ice cream and hung out for a bit. I had to shower first because I was literally soaked from the neck up in blue paint!! I think I even had blue paint on my teeth (thanks Trevor!)
