DH bought me a beautiful bangle - white and yellow gold one. He brought it into the hospital the morning after I had DD, bless him. He'd been to the jewellers the minute they opened that day.

My dh got me a eternity ring week after ds was born.

jampots Wed 13-Apr-05 21:18:30

nope - not even a bunch of flowers

Flossam Wed 13-Apr-05 21:19:22

I had to wait a while, and drop several hints, but I got a white gold diamond and tanzonite ring as a lovely surprise a few months after DS arrived. It's all lovely and sparkly!

No! tightwad!

nikcola Wed 13-Apr-05 21:21:39

A huge beautiful bunch of red roses.

Nothing worth having, no! I had an arrangement of dried flowers after having ds and I don't think I had anything after having dd. Mind you, I rarely get birthday, Christmas, Mother's Day or anniversary presents. I used to drop hints, but they got ignored and now I don't bother. If I really want something, I'll get it for myself. It goes on the same Visa card bill, no matter who buys it!

he went to the supermarket and bought all the things he knew I'd craved whilst pregnant like booze, pate, stilton etc

emmatmg Wed 13-Apr-05 21:26:48

DS1, a bunch of flowers, a baguette and a tub of pate.

I'd been craving it all the pregnancy but could eat it. He took me to sainsburys on the way home from the hospital to buy it

Ds2, flowers I think.

Ds3, nothing.

prawn mayonaise sarnies! - oh and a bunch of flowers from the petrol station.

snafu Wed 13-Apr-05 21:31:32

Nope. And nothing for my 30th birthday a couple of weeks later, either.

A beautiful 1.25 carat 3 stone diamond ring.

Spent a lot of money on it, but to us it was thank you for this one, sorry this one gave you heart failure/disease and really sorry we can't have any more. P.S I love you.

Paid in excess of 2.5 k for it on a Saturday, DH was made redundant (post September 11th)on the Monday.

Oh Happy Days

bubblerock Wed 13-Apr-05 21:44:58

I didn't get anything either - no flowers - I'm STILL waiting for my eternity ring also!!!

Yes DH you can read this post over my shoulder ...

beansprout Wed 13-Apr-05 21:45:06

No, but with ds and dp, I couldn't want for anything else

mmmmchocolate Wed 13-Apr-05 21:49:47

My DF got me a days pampering in a health clinic, was heaven....

franke Wed 13-Apr-05 21:57:17

Got back from hospital with dd having had a fairly difficult birth and cs. Dragged myself up to the bedroom fell into bed....WTF....landed on a box with a beautiful necklace in it. I think I was fairly grumpy about it at the time, but it is my favourite piece of jewellry. When ds was born I got another necklace - love it too. Neither is particularly ostentatious, just really thoughtfully chosen.

mummytosteven Wed 13-Apr-05 21:58:00

nope - an eternity ring is intended tho - (yes, I know 13 months on!!!) idea being we go back to Whitby where I got my engagement ring (black jet teardrop) and get a jet eternity ring from the same jewellers (get them to make it if necessary)

Evesmama Wed 13-Apr-05 21:58:55

dp bought me an eternity ring when we found out i was pg.
in hosp morning after, i got flowers, card, mars bars and red bull, oh and two great big pre packed sandwhiches(i had nothing to eat all day then a scabby slice of toast after i had had her!!!!)

binkybetsy Wed 13-Apr-05 21:59:59

No but I bought him a stunning RADO watch! What a jip!!
In fact I'm going to go and peck his head right now about this!!!

Evesmama Wed 13-Apr-05 22:01:57

ooh and dp went out sat morn for things for bubs and baguettes and pate for me

Preggars Wed 13-Apr-05 22:03:02

I was very spoilt and got some diamond studs.

tiptop Wed 13-Apr-05 22:04:52

Being the wicked sort I am, I think we should have all the lovely, thoughtful presents on one thread with no "I didn't get anything" posts on it and then those of us that want to, could print it off and show it to our skinflint dhs/dps!
