Hey girls. I ordered my self a loss necklace. Since I lost the baby about six weeks ago, I've been, obviously, very unhappy. I think I figured out, at least patially why. I've been trying to act like it never happened: like I was never pregnant and never lost a child. I've been hoping that the whole thing will just "go away". When you guys suggested honoring the memory of my lost baby, I thought you were crazy. I'm sorry, but I did I couldn't understand why you would want a symbol of your saddest moment displayed everyday to remind you every day of your loss. I thought that the last thing I needed was tangable evidence that I have a reason to be this sad. But, it's been over a month now and the crying everyday has dwindled to a few times a week. I'm no longer thinking only about the baby. Life has started to go one. And you know what? I'm a little annoyed with that :confused: No one but me seems to even remember that less then two months ago, I was preparing for motherhood. My life was layed out for me and I was so excited. Now, everything EVERYTHING is different. It's okay that everyone else had moved on. Really, it is. I get that. That's exactly what I wanted to do. But, every now and then, I want to have my loss and the child I never got to meet, acknowldged. I don't want a big to do. I coudn't handle that anyway. Anything too much just makes me wallow again. But, I do want something that I can pull out and see and touch that will halp me to cope. A necklace is perfect. I can wear it on days I want to remember and I can hide it away on days that the pain is too much or when remembering makes me uncomfortable (these emotions eh girls;)) I just thought I'd post about my little experience in case anyone elase was feeling the same way. I haven't read anything like it yet, so i thought I'd throw it out there for support for anyone who feels the same way. That's what I love and need so much about this board. The way I can always fine someone who knows EXACTLY how I feel. Thanks girls.
