    Just wondering if you got one and ifso, what?

    DH bought me a voucher for a half day full of pampering, massage, facial, mani and pedi! Once LO is old enough to cope for a few hours without his cow, I can't wait for some pampering!

    I guess I'm lucky to get a push present when I didn't really 'push' :haha: (I had an emergency c sec)

    No present for me either...however I do have beauty voucher that Mil gave me for my birthday just before LO was born...the cynic in me thinks she gave me it so that I'd get her to babysit while I went for treatments.

    I got some flowers which the hospital confiscated. :cry: I was in my own room at the far end of the ward so I didn't see why I couldn't have them. The hospital was 2.5 hours from home so I was alone pretty much all day every day for 5 days. Can't believe they took my only gift away! They said flowers and balloons were forbidden as an infection risk. Why aren't cards, teddies, chocolates and clothes an infection risk. :shrug:

    With my first I got a bunch of flowers from hubby, but really they were from my mum and dad! After my second, my hubby gave me a photobook he had made full of pictures of me and my son. It was so lovely x

    No present here. DH did cook me my favourite meal (pasta with spinach and blue cheese sauce) the night I got back from hospital. Which was thoroughly enjoyed after three days of hospital food and nine months of no blue cheese!

    I don't refer to it as a push present, because in my family it's tradition to buy something for your children when they have their first child, so my mum was going to buy me a piece of jewellery to mark the occasion, but not with subsequent children.

    But for some reason my mum totally forgot about it, and I buoght myself something instead :) I bought an eternity ring to wear with my wedding and e-rings. The eternity ring is diamond and emerald; diamond because my LO was born in April and emerald because she was due to be born in May, and those are the birthstones for those months. I only recently realised that that ring is very unique to my little girl, and for that reason I'll have to buy myself another eternity ring when I have another child.

    :rolleyes: Oh, the chore...

    I'd never heard of a pushing present until i read about it on BnB! Mentioned it jokingly to my OH when in hospital & on the way home, he stopped off at Sainsburys and bought me a bunch of flowers (last of the old romantics.... lol!).
