I just feel so sad today and thinking what I could do to make a momento for my baby .I didn't get any pics as she was very tiny..right now I want to knock myself out cause I gave the baby to the doc to send to pathology and now I wish I hadn't so I could have done something so I could know where she is.The not knowing is killing me.I feel like a bad mother for it.I pndering all day what I could have done different.
::Hugs:: I'm sorry your having a rough day As far as a momento, there are tons of ideas out there and also a lot of websites to get things from. I'm sure someone will have other ideas. What I did is bought a necklace with a tiny little gold ring as the charm. I wear it often but not many people know what it symbolizes. I hope you can find something perfect for you. I'm so sorry for your loss.
I am so sorry for your loss. I know that even now I look back and ask myself why didn't I .....(fill in the blank). I went to this site www.labelledame.com
they have amazing memorial jewelry there. Mine is a very discreet necklace with blue quartz, rose quartz, and three crystals. One crystal is brown(topaz) for month of conception, one is green (peridot) for month of EDD, and one is red (ruby) for month of birth. It also has a small forget-me-not flower with it. They have so many different ways to cherish and remember that I recommend taking a look when you are ready.
I know that we are going to have our regular Christmas tree and that I think that I am going to have a mini tree that has nothing but angels on it this year and maybe every year from now on. Later, I am also going to get a memorial tattoo (as is DH). There are so many ways that you can remember and memorialize your precious angel.
I can only say that whatever you end up doing, it will be the right thing for you. I wish you peace and serenity.
Dont feel bad! The truth of the matter is that no matter what we do to remember our babies we will always feel lacking! Nothing we can do now will make up for a lifetime of that missing part of us.
Shelly and Carey have some brilliant ideas. I got a necklace from labelledame.com with Zane's name on it and two footprints on the other side, it's shaped like a heart. I just ordered one with Ada's name on too. The memory box is a great idea. Put in it anything that reminds you of your time with bub.
