Boy or girl? U.S. parents go too far in gender reveals

A plane crash in Texas, a deadly explosion in Iowa, a massive fire in Arizona -- elaborate baby gender reveal parties, a growing trend among parents in the U.S., have taken a nightmarish turn.

With the rise of social media, gender reveals have become more and more sophisticated and "extreme," according to Carly Gieseler, a professor of gender and media studies at City University of New York (CUNY).

"We've gotten to the point where you have explosions and fireworks, skydivers" appearing all over Instagram or YouTube.

And specialized businesses have begun to pop up, all too eager to meet the demand.

It complements another American custom, that of the baby shower -- a party, primarily for women, where an expecting mother is showered with gifts of baby supplies.

Even the woman credited with inventing the trend -- lifestyle blogger Jenna Karvunidis, who wrote a blog post about her party in 2008 when she was pregnant with her first daughter -- today feels she created a bit of a monster.

"Who cares what gender the baby is?" Karvunidis asked in the post, which has racked up more than 35,000 likes.
