New Frontier in Pregnancy Oversharing: The Ultrasound Party

Photo: Brandi Simons/

Think that the ultrasound photo shared on Facebook by your pregnant friend is a bit much? You ain't seen nothin' yet. There's a new frontier in the world of pregnancy oversharing ... welcome to the ultrasound party:

Thanks to improved ultrasound technology, parents-to-be can now invite friends and family to share in an intimate viewing of baby in utero.

“It’s our opportunity to see those little fingers and toes again,” said Kimberly Enderle, a 29-year-old Rogers, Ark., mom due in February who decided to host an ultrasound party just for fun.

With the exception of two women in lab coats and a buzzing console next to the chaise lounge, the Enderles' party was like any other family gathering. Drinks, snacks, friendly banter. Once the machine was ready, though, Kimberly asked husband Jonathon to corral the guests around the two monitors and hit the lights.

Suddenly there was a baby on the screen.

You know what they say. There's no party like an ultrasound party! TODAY has the story: Link

I've heard of these parties. There's a company in my area that offers them. I suppose that if a mother is getting an ultrasound scan for recreational rather than diagnostic purposes, it's not a bad idea. But a party would be the wrong place to learn about a gestational problem.

This reminds me of my favorite scene from one of the first episodes of Friends, when the gang are all looking at the video of the ultrasound from Ross' ex-wife...
Joey: "What are we lookin' at, again?"
Chandler: "I don't know, but I think it's about to attack the Enterprise."
