Did your DH/SO give you a "push" present?

My nephew's girlfriend is pregnant and is expecting a push present. Sigh.

Is it just a sign of this "me" generation?

What's the me generation? No, I never received a push present.

 WTF is a push present?  I'm guessing since I don't know what it is, that means I didn't get one. lol

The "me" generation is this group of young 20-somethings who think that the world revolves around them and that it is all about me, me, me.  They see it, they should have it.   They'll certainly make interesting moms, since a baby is all about me as well.

a "push present" is a present the SO/DH gives the mother when she has a baby?  isn't that right

no, I didn't get one...the baby was the best present ever?  who would want more than that?

the miracle of birth- esp. how I had my boys- with a midwife at a birthing center is so GREAT...I could never ever ask for anything more

I'd only heard about "Push Presents" here on CafeMom. I think my Babies were present enough.

Me too. I didn't get or want a push present. My babies were the best gift my husband could have given me ♥

I do not appreciate this generalization.  I am 27, got married and had my first child at 19.  I have never been this way.  My husband and I have worked for everything we ahve and have never been handed anything at all.  I am a great mother and my world does revolve around my 3 kids.

I did not get a push present - personally I find them a bit ridiculous.  With that said I also did not push any of my babies out.
