    Question How do you remember...(m/c ment)

    It's been a week since I miscarried and I really want to do something special that will help me remember the short time that I had together with my baby. I've been trying to think of ideas and I haven't been able to come up with one that would work or that I feel is good enough. I don't have have an ultrasound picture or anything like that to use. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas or suggestions? I would also like to say that we are all incredible women and the pain that we suffer is like no other, but we are strong and we are so lucky to have each other for support and understanding.

    I'm really sorry for your loss. Maybe you could name your baby and write some special thoughts to him/her and put them in a special keepsake box. (((Hugs)))

    I have a beautiful necklace that I wear everyday. If you think jewelry would be an idea that might work for you, go to www.labelledame.com as this site has amazing jewelry for however you may want to remember your angel.

    My husband and I found a rock for our garden with a lovely saying on it. There are a ton of memorial websites with ideas on how to remember.
    I bought a necklace from Red Envelope with one pearl in a heart to represent my little girl. It is a beautiful piece and it isn't outright obvious that you lost if you are not ready to talk about it.

    I am sorry about your loss. The women on this site are wonderful though.

    I have a necklace from labelledame.com for both of my angels. Also, i like the planting a tree idea. We have a star in Zanes name too.

    Anything you do will be appropriate, because it will be special to you. We remember our babies in everything we do, every day.

    Some of the things we have done (or given to us)

    Celtic rings made with his name
    A tree
    A garden rock
    A star (my parents gave us this for Christmas)

    One of the ladies on here gave me the idea of getting a houseplant (because unlike a tree, you can take it with you if you move), and I think we are going to do that.

    We are also planning a ceremony of remembrance at our church.

    I have a keepsake box where I printed off the few journal entries I made, some of the pm's I had at the time, a little toy that we had picked out and the cards I got. We also got a cherry blossom tree, tried to pick one that would flower in the month Boo would have been born. As it turned out this year, it flowered the day after my EDD, so pretty darn close. The tree is in a large patio container as we are certain we wantt o move soon. When I find the house we are likely to stay in for a very long time, I want to plant it into the ground.

    For next years anniversary, I would like to get some kind of jewllery with the birthstone for March

    I bought a necklace that had what would have been my baby's birthstone. It really brought me a lot of comfort in the months following my loss. Now if just makes me happy to wear it - to think of our loss and to remember, and to feel close to her.

    Default Thanks

    Thanks, those are all wonderful ideas. I think I have decided what to do now. I'm thinking I will get a piece of jewellery that is an angel with the birthstone for May and I also think I will start a keepsake box. I like that a lot. I would like to plant something, but I don't own a house yet. I think I will do that one day when we do.
