All the reminders

Hey everyone...

a little background first. I found out we were pregnant last year in November. We started house hunting and bought a new home in January. The owners wanted a May 1st closing , which seemed perfect for my July due date. Unfortunately, we lost our daughter, Lucy in February.

Last week we finally moved into our new house and as much as I love it, it has been incredibly bittersweet. The previous owners had a baby, so there is a nursery and we moved the boxes of stuff we'd already bought for Lucy. Everything reminds me of the plans we had and I've really had to face alot of the pain I'd been pushing aside. A good thing, but exhausting and a little sad.

I wonder how everyone here deals with these reminders. I've decided to keep the nursery as it is (we are TTC again). For me, it's a symbol of hope and a way of honoring those dreams we had. Does that seem crazy?

PG and TTC MENT

No that doesn't seem crazy. I kept all my stuff from my first loss and now that I'm pg again I just went through it the other day. The first baby was a girl and this one is a boy so I did have some stuff that I gave to my friend since she is having a girl. I'm sorry for you loss and wish you all the luck in TTC! Congrats on the new house even though it comes with mixed feelings - stay positive and look to the future!
