Here's Your Baby, Now Where's My Bling?

The very idea of "push presents" sounds too much like a Sex and the City episode gone wrong. Don't get me wrong; there's a great sentiment behind push presents. If a man does something to recognize the emotional and physical stress of carrying a child of his own volition, it's a lovely gesture. But new mothers shouldn't let a trickle-down trend from Hollywood lead them to expect diamonds and sapphires, and new fathers shouldn't feel pressured into giving them.

Except that pregnant bellies have been around since the beginning of time. So not that new, or unusual. Here are some gems women rocking bellies of any size will likely hear on any given day.

I'm an Entrepreneur and I Have it All

My life has been "busy" and a lot of work for quite some time now, and that's something I don't want to change. I still take the necessary time to unplug and fill myself and my family up, but cannot deny that I also thrive off of creating and growing in business. That will likely always be part of me, even with a new baby at my side. My work is very much tied into what I want to create for my family to benefit from. I have complete respect for the women who grow up with a complete focus on wanting to stay home and raise a family... but for me, part of what I want to represent to my children is showing them that they have the ability to "have it all."

As I sit here, almost seven months pregnant, I'm faced with thinking about what the future holds for generations to come. I want to teach my children to do the right thing -- always.

Delaying Childbirth Is Risky, But Worth it For Some

Recently the medical community has become concerned that many women overestimate their chances of conceiving if they delay childbearing into their late 30s and 40s. To be honest, the way this issue is being dealt with irks me. Should we really be encouraging women to settle down before they are ready, and marry, not for love, but to ensure they have adequate time to procreate?

Tick Tock Biological Clock

Isla Traquair

I am an absolute typical example of a new breed of women. Been married, divorced, very independent, love my job, enjoy my freedom and subconsciously take it for granted that I will have children at some point. Is it wrong to want to be settled, secure, with a house and garden before we decide to reproduce? Morally and socially, no, but biologically we are taking a big gamble.
