No, and (no offense to anyone) I think it seems a little ridiculous to get a present for having a baby, and almost like.. condescending, like it's something you might not be able to do and since you did you must deserve a reward. IDK. My "present" will be my baby
The baby is a great present, but sometimes you get the present before the baby comes during a super long labor... it's a cute idea that some people do
I don't think I will be this time. Last time labor was on my birthday and the day after, so I think any presents were done for birthday. My midwife did send me and Dalton a birthday cake though and that was super cute.
I would like to get a mother's ring, and I think that would be a neat push present.

It sounds weird and I cna see where Mana is coming from but I did ask for one. Its nothing extravagent or pricey (and I hope bf doesnt turn it into a big deal).
For my bday I got this small (but GEORGEOUS) yellow gold necklace with a heart and the heart is a ruby. I call it my baby necklace. I wear it all the time and dont take it off. It reminds me of how special she is. Its not much but it was the best he could afford and he picked it out with love for me (and her). I have asked for a pair of very simple stud earrings that are also rubies (and yellow gold). I want to match the necklace.
And I plan at a future special milestone date to give both the earrings and the necklace to Baby S.
