    No I think it’s silly. For PPs who said it’s ridiculous to say the baby is gift enough … I don’t agree at all.  Yes we do the work in labor/delivery but if it wasn’t for DH we wouldn’t even have that opportunity.  Thanks to DH I can take my full 12 weeks off and not worry about those weeks that are unpaid.  I am 37 and pregnant thanks to my very best friend… I always dreamed of being a mommy so yes.. our baby definitely IS my gift. 

     

    I just don’t understand why some think they deserve a present for doing what women have been doing since the beginning of time.. only  once upon a time they did it in the middle of a field alone with no assistance or epis LOL!!!

     

    I’d rather any gifts be given to our baby boy:)

    @redsmarties:  I’m expecting a hard cider, a frozen margarita, and a platter of sushi.

     

    ROFLMAO I LOVE this!!!!!

    We were just married last St Pat’s day and still have a bottle of champagne from our wedding… obviously couldn/t drink it on our anniversary since I’m “with bean”… so I’m looking forward to that at the hosp or as soon as we get home. DH isn’t a champagne fan so most of the bottle will be for me:)

    I have asked my husband to bring me a COLD (not heated!) footlong Italian sandwich with the biggest coke zero he can find after delivery. Actually, begged is probably the right term. Does that count, haha? I’d rather have that right now than jewelry!

    I hate the whole term and it’s becoming a trend that in my opinions spur unnecessary mindless consumerism.  If my Fi got me a small gift because he felt like it fine. I mean whats next, your sperm worked great and you knocked me up presents?

    @StaceyA:  I didn’t know you’d gotten your BFP, my long-cycled compatriot! I’m so happy for you! Congrats — I hope you have a wonderfully smooth pregnancy! ๐Ÿ™‚

    DH is very generous and loves giving gifts (we both do) so yes, I do expect one and no, DH doesn’t think I’m being selfish or extravagant for wanting one. He claims that a very extravagant wedding gift that he got me counts towards a push gift as well, but he’s a softie so I expect he’ll come up with something. Haha.

    I find the whole concept of a push present to be quite odd.  So no, I certainly don’t expect a present for having a baby (a choice that DH and I are making together).

    I don’t expect one but I know Fiance will get me something little to celebrate the day. Also, wine. Lots and lots of wine.

    Not pregnant yet, but DH would have no idea what a push present even was, and I doubt he’d get one- and honestly, I don’t expect or want him to.

    I sent DH a link of what I want for mother’s day and he said something like “If I get that I don’t know how good of a present I can get when you deliver”.  I was like, “a push present?! How do you even know what that is?!” lol.  A friend of his got his wife a push present, but that was a few years ago, guess he remembered!  I think I might get a little something, but I’d be perfectly fine just getting the baby! ๐Ÿ™‚

    My husband gave me exactly the kind of engagement ring and wedding band I wanted when we got engaged and married, so I don’t really need any more diamonds right now.  While not exactly a push present, I have told my husband that for my first mother’s day, I want to go to the grand buffet brunch at the venue where we got married.  It’s a little pricey, so not something we would do every year.  The baby will be about 8 months old by then, so it’ll be a nice treat.  

     

    The only other thing I would ask for as a push present would be a cleaning company to keep the house clean after the baby was born so I don’t have to do it.
