Fergie Will Get a Push Present

Fergie will have more than just a new little baby to look forward to when she delivers her son this fall. Her husband Josh Duhamel is planning to get her a push present. He said recently, “Yes, I will be getting her a push present. I just don’t know quite what yet. You got Christmas, you got birthdays, you got Valentine’s, you got Mother’s Day, you got every other thing in between … I don’t know who came up with this push present idea, but I think it’s probably a female.”

I am so perplexed at who came up with the idea of a push present. I don’t remember hearing about them when I was pregnant with my first but know that they were a “thing” while pregnant with my subsequent babies. Quiet honestly I think push presents are pretty ridiculous.

I think as women we often use pregnancy as an excuse to get whatever we want whether it is from preferential treatment on a crowded subway or expecting a significant other to trudge to the grocery store at three in the morning to get ice cream. I guess a push present is just another way to demand something in return for giving birth, something women have been doing since the beginning of time.

I didn’t need a present from anyone just because I did something that was natural to me and something that I had to do regardless of whether or not my husband bought me some small trinket. I know that I may be in the minority for my opinion but I honestly am just not a big present person. My husband and I don’t even get each other presents for Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, or Father’s Day. I guess in my mind, the gift of having a new baby and the diaper changing, night feeding, and care that my husband provides after giving birth is enough for me to feel appreciated and loved.

Do you expect your partner to give you a push present?

    I wanted a mothers necklace after having my 2nd child. Why? Because after 12 weeks I was back to work and I wanted something to hold to remind me why I was working and to make me feel something tangible while was at work. I love my kids I wanted a token to make me smile during a busy day.

    i hadnt heard of them until after i had my son and dont think they are necessary. no present could compare to the gift of holding my son in my arms for the first time.

    ive never even heard about it until now, but i certainly see no point in them. flowers to make the mommy smile, or something for the baby sure… if someone wants to get me a “push present” they can get me some good sushi made with raw fish sence i cant have that at the moment lol. but really, a present because you evicted a small person from your insides doesnt seem necessary, because holding my baby, and being able to properly bend at the waste again will be present enough for me 🙂

    I think they are silly. If my husband insist then he better get something I didn’t get from the registry.
