Not really but I did say after the baby came that I would like this http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001BDQQ76/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&m=A1LQ759O23Q0NG
It is the Willow Tree, Our Gift, New Parents Figurine. He bought me the "Home" figurine when we found out we were expecting and we have had the together one since we were engaged. So I want to complete the set. It is more sentimental than anything
I've never understood this...
I consciously made the decision to have this baby, and my husband has been an active, equal partner in this pregnancy. I don't understand why I deserve a present. (If anything, he probably deserves one for putting up with me, pampering me, and being overall a great daddy-to-be!)
To each their own, but I don't need any more of a present than my sweet baby and the love of my husband.

No- isn't that what Mother's Day is for? I fully expect to get something to then. . . but not a "push present". As a PP said-- the baby is gift enough for me. :)
Nope. I have told DH that he will be going to get take-out for the first meal after delivery so I am spared hospital food- I'll take a nice cheeseburger as a push present
i told my hubby to skip the push present and i'll take a maid
I didn't think he'd get anything, but just in case I told him not to. My gift is him taking off work and adjusting to all of this with me.
I do want a pendant with LO's birthstone, and I saw some really nice ones last week. I think I'll pick it up for myself or request it as a gift for some occasion. I don't think that's a push present though.
My SO doesn't even know about push presents. If you want to do it, go for it. That's between you and your husband.
Personally, I think it's ridiculous. It's not his fault that he doesn't have the anatomy to carry or birth a baby. I don't feel like I should receive something special for having the anatomy to carry and birth a baby. SO is already jealous that I "get her all the time". And I have a feeling that seeing him hold our daughter will be much greater than any present anyone could possibly buy me.
DH doesn't have anything to do with this, but with DS I bought something special to hand down to him (he can give his wife if he wants) some day.
I am thinking about doing the same thing w/ DD, but I haven't decided yet.

This. My sister asked my DH (unprovoked by me) if he was familiar with push presents. I've got my eye on a birthstone ring for the month LO is born in, butI would rather it be mothers day. No push present necessary.
I certainly do not knock anyone for doing push presents but I am pretty sure my husband doesn't have a CLUE what that is :) And I am okay with it.
I could be wrong but as a FTM, I picture that when the gift would be handed to me, I would say thank you, and then throw it to the side to cater to my little one. :) The best gift I can envision is being a supportive, helpful, caring spouse during our transition into parenthood.
My husband found me that one at Cracker Barrel. It's sitting on my piano right now.
Apparently my husband gets "educated" by his coworkers. He was the first one to mention about the babymoon and now a push present.
Personally I think the push present is another marketing idea, but I think I will get a ring with baby's birthstone: amethyst.
Amethyst is symbolic of spirituality and piety. Also symbolic of protection and the power to overcome difficulty. It is said to strengthen the bond in a love relationship too. It would be nice for me to wear it (to enhance our marriage (heehee)) and hand it down to my daughter.
I guess it doesn't have to be a ring or anything, but I couldn't think of anything else? In addition, I do want to get something for my husband too. If so, what should it be?
