    Me either.

    Plus, my birthday is a few days after my due date so if there is anything I really have  to have (unlikely) I will ask for it as a b-day gift.

  • uhmm yeah....

    I am getting.... a baby ;)

     

    I will be buying myself an updated necklace from the vintage pearl though once baby comes :)

    I hadn't either.  MH found it on the internet also.  I've only known one person IRL to get a push present.  But, I figure if a man wants to get his wife something, then there's no harm in it..  it seems sweet :)

  • Not really, but as a combo b-day and baby gift, my folks are going to pay for us to have laundry hookups installed in the bathroom in our den downstairs, so I won't have to go down two flights of stairs, into the garage and down another flight of stairs to do laundry in the basement anymore! I'm terrible excited.

  • Oh Lord - those are HUGE around here. HUGE. In fact, i know very few women who DONT get them...other than me.

    1. My husband is foreign - so he had no clue and more importantly

    2. We were broke....and I would have killed him

    He did get me for xmas a hand-stamped silver necklace with the girls initials which i LOVE and know cost under $40. Call it what you want, but I'd love a third stamped disc to add with this baby's letters!!!!

  • Since I'm not actually pushing a baby out....no! LOL
    I'm having a repeat c/s and my baby is what I'm looking forward to having, not some present.

  • Ew. No.
    I'll be having a csec so I guess he won't have a reason for a "push present" as I won't be pushing!

    This.  I think it is a little silly but I agree that anytime a man wants to give his wife a gift, it is sweet.   However, it is only sweet if he thought of it himself!  If mom-to-be tells him to get a her a push present and/or what to get her, oh. hell. no!

  • Just curious, why are peoples responses to this "eww"? How is that gross or eww? And what is so terrible about a small gift for a woman who had one hell of a 40 week ride?

    Yeah, definitely!  It's also a no-no if the financial situation doesn't allow for it.

    It is one thing if the guy gets something on his own.  But a lot of ladies seem to expect, even demand, something as a reward for having a baby.  Most want jewelry.  I think that is gift grabby, selfish, and petty.

    Of course!  Anytime you're asking for gifts it's grabby and selfish.  But it's not fair to generalize that everyone that receives a push present has asked for something.  (Not saying that YOU are generalizing this.. but it seems to be a pretty common generalization.) 

    I have never once brought up the push present thing to MH because I thought it was silly and just another expense, but I thought it was sweet that MH did the research and brought it up to me and is trying to think of cute ideas.

    I agree. It's never something I would ask for or expect but i have had friends who have been surprised by their husband with little gifts. It's nice when its something related to the baby... Like monogrammed charms. JMO
  • I like presents!  It would probably be smarter for daddy to wait about a week after I give birth when the postpartum depres sets in.  I'll be all about baby that same day!

  • Honestly I wouldn't be upset if DH got me something small and inexpensive that would remind me of the special first day with LO. Especially if it was something with LO's initials or maybe a book or something? However, I would never ever ask or expect something since I usually get things I need rather than want. Also, if it wasnt't baby related and it was expensive (like fancy jewelry) he would be returning it. 
  • I agree that a gift on demand basically looses the meaning behind it and is a bit crazy. But otherwise, that's a wonderful idea. When we found out in pregnant, DH got me a baby carriage for my Pandora bracelet. Something small and adorable, but it meant so much :D

    That is adorable, I get so excited when DH brings me string cheese I can't imagine the reaction if it were something meaningful lol. What a good DH :)

    I actually never heard of this until today :P Not sure if its considered a push present since my birthday is a week before my EDD but DH will be giving lots of presents at that time :) Who needs an excuse for presents!?

  • I haven't read the other responses but I'd consider him changing diapers for a week as a push present since I have to get up every 3 hours to feed.
