    I’m expecting foot rubs, massages, and a pedicure. Oh wait I’m already getting that (heheheeh)…

    I’m not expecting one. Especially with LO being due in December right before Christmas. I think our first Christmas as a family will be the best present of all!

    Absolutely not. If I received one from him, I would accept it. I am sure he will be very helpful as he is right now around the house if I were to get pregnant. He is a gift to me everyday – I don’t want him to blow a bunch of money on me, no thank you.

    No way, something about it just doesnt sit right with me. The whole, “I pushed a baby out of my v-jay so I deserve a present”…um,surely in most cases, having a baby is a mutual choice. If we ever do get pregnant, I know that the end game is going to be me pushing a watermelon out of my hoo-ha, and Im ok with that. I dont need a present. Besides, DH wont be getting a present for me probably keeping him up all night when I cant sleep, running and fetching when I get cravings, and manouvering round the land mines that are pregnancy hormones lol.

    I am getting one.  A silver bar necklace with both children’s names (or initials) on it.  Nothing extravagant but I love it.

    This delivery is costing us approximately $4500. So all I want is DH to be there, encouraging me and supporting me. His love and help around the house and with the baby will be more than enough.

    I doubt Fiance has any idea what that is, and I’m not going to tell him. I think its kind of silly, to be honest. We would already be spending tons of money on the kid, I wouldnt want him to spend money on anything else that wasnt needed.

    I wouldn’t expect or ask for one, but DH has already said on his own that he would like to get me a ring or necklace with the baby’s birthstone as a sentimental item to commemorate the birth

    I’m due next month and am not expecting this…although I am due on mother’s day, and I definitely want a mother’s day present! So kind of, I guess.

    Definitely not! I don’t even think DH has ever heard of this. Even if he has, I wouldn’t be expecting anything.

    I would never expect a “push gift”, and tbh I find it unnecessary and just strange, but this is my opinion. I would feel awkward accepting a gift for “pushing out a baby”…

    Does a beer and sushi count? If not, then no. I definitely do not expect one.

    Nope, I had never even heard of this before wedding bee. My husband did mention wanting to gift me an elliptical/bike when we move into our new home and have room for it, though (but he already mentioned it so not much of a suprise) that is more of a “yay we bought a house and have room” gift than anything, just happens to be around the same time I’m due.
