Pregnancy news, 30/03/17
Binky and Josh broke the news on Monday night’s episode of Made in Chelsea. The grand gender reveal (emphasis on grand) was made at a lavish party where the pair was surrounded by pink and blue refreshments, flowers and balloons.
The guests were invited to place their bets on whether they thought the baby was a girl or a boy but the guessing was soon over when the mum- and dad-to-be were showered in pink confetti.

Finding out whether your baby is a boy or a girl is a really personal decision so don't feel pressured either way.
If you do want to know the gender of your baby you can typically find out at your second scan (also known as the ‘fetal anomaly' scan) at around 18 to 21 weeks. Let your sonographer know whether or not you want to keep it as a surprise.
It's also good to note that it's not always possible to determine the sex, and the primary focus of this scan is to check if your baby is healthy and growing.
