a push present is a present to mama for giving birth... my would be slice presents since I had c-sections and if we did this I'd still be waiting for both of mine LOL
It's basically just a present from dad to mom as a "thanks for growing and delivering a beautiful baby for us to love".
We don't make a big deal of it but my hubby has always gotten me something. I didn't expect it with my first, he totally surprised me. I got a loose stone on our honeymoon and he had it mounted and put on a chain for me.
Our 2nd one, he got me a locket.
For this baby, I've asked for a birthstone necklace to represent all 3 kids. I'm due 5/4 and 5/30 is our 10 year anniversary so this would also be an anniversary present.
I had no idea that it was (normally) specific to your SO. I'm a single momma. My mom & aunt were in the delivery room with me and suprised me with push gifts. It's probably just my prego emotions, but reading that it is normally a gift from your SO as a "thanks for growing this baby for us to love", made me get so emotional. My mom and aunt did that for me, and it was very special. I still have both items.
I don't get a "push" present when they are born... but a few weeks later I do get to pick out a birth stone ring :)
