¿Cómo planificar un gender reveal?

Estoy feliz de estar de nuevo por acá y, sobre todo, de estar compartiendo un momento tan bonito de mi vida con todos ustedes. El embarazo me ha hecho ser aún más consciente de lo bonita que es la vida, realmente me siento muy agradecida por todas las manifestaciones de cariño que nos han llegado.

    Hoy hablaremos sobre uno de los momentos más emocionantes y emotivos de todo embarazo: la revelación del género de nuestro bebé. La celebración del gender reveal es una práctica que se ha vuelto muy común últimamente; es una manera original y divertida de darle a conocer a nuestros familiares y amigos si tendremos un niño o una niña.

    Ahora bien, ¿cómo empezar a planificarlo?

Lo primero que debemos saber es si nosotros -los padres- queremos estar al tanto previamente del género del bebé o si deseamos que sea una sorpresa también para nosotros. En el caso de esta última opción, debemos contar con un amigo cómplice quién será el que sepa si el bebé es niño o niña y nos ayude en la elaboración de la sorpresa.

En nuestro caso, nosotros preferimos no saber y dejar que la sorpresa fuera total. Pero es importante saber que, independientemente de lo que elijas, será un momento hermoso y digno de recordar.

Ahora, una vez que ya tenemos decidido este paso, es momento de pensar en el tema. Una buena opción es basarlo en los gustos/hobbies/profesiones de los padres, por ejemplo: si el padre es futbolista y la madre bailarina sería muy divertido hacer juegos y dividir a los bandos, también planear el tema y la decoración en base a esta temática.

En cuanto al lugar…nosotros decidimos hacerlo en un viñedo, un espacio que amo, donde me siento cómoda y en donde mis seres queridos -no embarazados jajaja- pueden disfrutar de un buen rato y de un delicioso vino. En este aspecto es importante pensar en todo, José y yo le dimos especial importancia al clima debido a que nos encontramos en pleno invierno, tuvimos que encontrar un lugar y una temática que fueran aptos para celebrarlo tanto en espacios abiertos como en interiores.

Por ello, la idea de pintarnos las camisas nos pareció genial. Una opción divertida, sencilla, emocionante y fácil de hacer. Recordemos siempre que lo importante es disfrutar cada momento del evento, de nuestro embarazo y, además, facilitarnos un poco la vida.

Pienso que todo Gender Reveal es, ante todo, un momento para compartir. Para disfrutar nuestra felicidad con todos los seres que nos aman y están tan contentos como nosotros mismos. Siempre y cuando nos sintamos cómodos, contentos, bien acompañados y en armonía, todo irá bien.

Además, no puedo dejar de mencionar al maravilloso equipo de Love on Paper (@loveonpaperdc) quienes me ayudaron con todo lo relativo a la decoración, captaron mis gustos a la primera y se preocuparon por brindarnos un día mágico. Si tenemos la oportunidad, recomiendo totalmente trabajar de la mano de un equipo que nos ayude a planificar y a llevar a cabo este día mágico.

Y, por último… no está “bien” hacer un Gender Reveal y no está “mal” no hacerlo. Vivimos en un mundo donde se idealiza el embarazo y, en ocasiones, se nos presiona para cubrir una serie de expectativas. Renunciemos a esto. Disfrutemos los momentos como vengan, como queramos, respetando nuestros gustos y necesidades. Si lo queremos celebrar muy bien, y sino también. Lo importante es que tanto nosotras como nuestras parejas nos sintamos cómodos con las decisiones tomadas, ¡el embarazo es un momento demasiado hermoso como para no valorarlo!

#ad You guys already know that with Maya, I am exclusively breastfeeding for now, and I am also giving her milk in bottles. I've been using the @babybrezza bottle and breastmilk warmer, and I can't tell you how great it is or how much I love this product! It is very easy to use, it is fast and effective. In addition, it guarantees that the nutrients of the breastmilk are retained.🫶🏻❤️

I highly recommend it, it is a safe way to heat our babies' food and it saves us a lot of time. My life definitely changed after trying it!

I love recycling and actively contributing to the conservation of the planet.🌍❤️ Therefore, it is very important to me that my daughters learn the same. It doesn't matter if we're in the house or out, we're always looking for recycling bins and Mia is happy to recycle with me.🗑️ Teaching by example is the best way! Plus, we can get amazing and very helpful recycling tips in Palm Beach County at SWA.org/RecycleRight!♻️

Tell me, how do you teach your children to recycle? At home we always talk about it and make it fun and important for the planet! ✨🌿

Mental health is really important, and as mothers, we must prioritize it even more.👌🏻❤️ I participated in an amazing live chat with @baptisthealthsf and we talked about the importance of prioritizing our mental health as moms and using all the resources we have available. You guys already know that my experience with this second pregnancy has been different, with new challenges, but let me remind you that it is important to take time for ourselves, be kind to ourselves, not put so much pressure on ourselves and most of all: we must learn how to how to ask for help.✨ That’s it. Help is there and we just have to ask for it! It's perfectly normal to feel overwhelmed and not be able to deal with everything at once. Social media makes us feel pressured, but I like to talk about real motherhood, where not everything is perfect, and there are difficult moments: not everything is perfect all day, there are difficult moments too. So love yourself a lot, enough to prioritize your mental health. And as I always say: happy mom, happy baby, and happy home.💖✨ You got this! #baptisthealth #BaptistHealthchat #maternalmentalhealth

Primer mes de Maya.❤️🌸

Agradecida con la vida por tenerte aquí, esta experiencia ha superado mis expectativas mil veces. Pensé que est- etapa sería diferente (quizás más difícil) y la verdad ha sido muchísimo mejor, creo que es normal como mamás tener este pensamiento de “No sé cómo lo voy a hacer”. Pero trato de recordarme todos los días que debo confiar en mi instinto, y que mi calma, las calma…

estoy amando la experiencia y disfrutando cada minuto.❤️

Sin duda Maya era una adición que le faltaba a nuestra familia, así que gracias princesa por habernos elegido.👨‍👩‍👧‍👧

I am happy to be here again and, above all, to be sharing such a beautiful moment of my life with all of you. Pregnancy has made me even more aware of how beautiful life is, I really feel very grateful for all the expressions of affection that have come to us.

    Today we will talk about one of the most exciting and emotional moments of any pregnancy: the revelation of the gender of our baby. The celebration of gender reveal is a practice that has become very common lately; It is an original and fun way to let our family and friends know if we are having a boy or a girl.

    Now, how do you start planning it?

The first thing we need to know is if we – the parents – want to be aware of the baby’s gender beforehand or if we want it to be a surprise for us as well. In the case of this last option, we must have an accomplice friend or family member who will be the one who knows if the baby is a boy or a girl and helps us in the elaboration of the surprise.

In our case, we prefer not to know and let the surprise be total. But it is important to know that regardless of what you choose, it will be a beautiful and memorable moment.

Now, once we have decided on this step, it is time to think about it. A good option is to base it on the tastes / hobbies / professions of the parents, for example: if the father is a soccer player and the mother dancer it would be very fun to play games and divide the sides, also plan the theme and decoration based whichever theme you decide on.

As for the place, we decided to do it in a vineyard, a space that I love, where I feel comfortable and where my loved ones – not pregnant hahaha – can enjoy a good time and a delicious wine. In this aspect it is important to think about everything, José and I gave special importance to the climate because we were in the middle of winter, we had to find a place and a theme that was suitable to celebrate it both indoors and outdoors.

Therefore, the idea of ​​painting our shirts seemed great to us. A fun, simple, exciting and easy option to do. This idea allowed us to always remember that the important thing is to enjoy every moment of the event, of our pregnancy and, also, to make life a little easier.

I think that all Gender Reveal is, above all, a moment to share. To enjoy our happiness with all beings who love us and are as happy as ourselves. As long as we feel comfortable, happy, in good company and in harmony, everything will be fine.

I cannot fail to mention the wonderful Love on Paper team (@loveonpaperdc) who helped me with everything related to decoration, captured my tastes the first time and cared to give us a magical day. If we have the opportunity, I totally recommend working hand in hand with a team that helps us plan and carry out this magical day.

And finally, it is not “right” to do a Gender Reveal and it is not “wrong” not to do it. We live in a world where pregnancy is idealized and sometimes pressured to fulfill a set of expectations. Let’s give this up. Let’s enjoy the moments as they come, as we want, respecting our tastes and needs. The important thing is that both you and our partners feel comfortable with the decisions made, pregnancy is too beautiful a moment not to value it!
