Default Does pregnant wife get a Mother's Day gift?

Wife is 12 weeks pregnant with first child. Does she get a gift on Mother's Day? What did you all do? Do you guys even get your wife anything, or are you like my dad and say "She ain't my mother."? Any other suggestions on what to get? Possibly have an ulterior motive as Father's Day is next

It never hurts. A thoughtful card would probably go farther than anything else imo

12 weeks pregnant? Imo no, I wouldn’t get her anything. I didn’t when my wife was pregnant with our first. Maybe a card to keep you out of hot water if you are worried about it.

Until that child is old enough to have ideas for input and in the even you donít want to live it down for the rest of your life, get the gift.

And Fatherís Day follows mothers day unfortunately. . .

Only if you want to live.

There are some really nice James Avery charms that would be most appropriate:

https://www.jamesavery.com/products/...70705efc00028b

Some, like the one I provided a link to can be engraved with the baby's name or initials and the birthdate after the baby is born. I predict you'll get major brownie points for this.

Congratulations and best of luck,

Dave

Quite a bit of "yes" votes... Just threw some socks in the Amazon cart... non-slip hospital socks that say "Ready Set Push" on the bottom. Also I think junior may get her a prenatal massage...boy can't wait to have the kid pay me back + 16 years interest on that one.

Thanks y'all.

Take the advice given! She's twelve weeks in, chances are the hormones are gonna overflow the container any minute now, when that happens you'll wish you had a couple of extras laying around, just in case!!
