I wouldn't expect anything but I already know that OH will get me something simply because that's the kind of guy he is. Doesn't make me selfish or grasping for accepting I hope

DH gave me one of my dream cars I did not expect it nor want it(and it was not for him as he HATES my taste in cars).
I do not get the idea of gifts but he would be upset if I told him I was annoyed at him for it. He said I "deserved" it. I loved that I got it but I would have preferred to buy it myself.
The thing I do not get is why mum's get so much attention and the dad's none or almost nothing.

I hate the name, "push present" but if you other half wants to give you a present to mark the occasion, whats the fuss? If your hubby gave you a piece of jewellery or something like that to celebrate having a baby, i'm sure it would make you smile every time you looked at it. Same with any kind of present, don't expect it, but enjoy the sentiment if its given.
My partner jokes that if we finally have a baby, after all the crap i've been through with ivf, he's buying me another diamond ring for the other hand.

I got a gorgeous ring. It will become an heirloom and will be passed down through DD.
It wasn't just about me, it was about the creation of our family and giving that family a legacy.

My exH gave me a sapphire and diamond ring with the birth of DS1. It is the only piece of jewellery I will still wear from him. Because I feel like it is not from him but a connection to my son. I picked it anyway

I'm kind of perplexed why some are so angry about other women getting gifts from their partners and family after their baby is born Fair enough I see the point one shouldn't demand, I'm not keen or demanding, narcissistic people.
But really, if you don't want flowers or some body butter or a set of earrings and want it to be all about the man, you are well within your right to refuse gifts and go buy something special for your partner
I'll be appreciating my body shop pack and pretty set of lillies thanks I'm a low maintenance girl anyway, I don't want anything huge. Just pretty flowers. That's me though...
