Mother's Day Gift When You're Expecting?
Thu, 05-09-2013 - 11:46am

Nearly 60 percent of first-time pregnant women expect to receive a gift on Mother's Day, but the same percentage of first-time expectant dads are "clueless," according to a survey of 400 expectant first-time moms and dads by marketing firm Eric Mower + Associates. Half of dads-to-be said they didn't think their partner expected a gift, and 11 percent responded "I have no idea."

What do you think?  Should first-time expecting mamas receive a Mother's Day gift? Would you be hurt if you didn't receive one?

Not so much a gift but acknowledgment of what you are going though because you are considered a mother now, not in nine months :-)

that's funny-  When I was pregnant with my first on Mother's Day, I only had a few weeks to go.  I was upset my hubby didn't do anything!  And what really bothered me was I didn't get a Mother's day, but the baby would be born before Father's day!  My uncle of all people was the one person who did give me a Mother's Day card that year.  And he never did since, lol
