Have you bought anything to honor the angel you lost?

I'm going to get a nice picture frame and put a picture of the ultrasound, plus the blessing certificate and a picture of me when I was pregnant.

I wanted my mother in law to make the cross stitches that my other kids got when they were born, she told me that I should move on and not dwell on it...so I haven't bothered her about it since. I haven't thought about what I could possibly get to remember the baby by. I keep thinking I want to give the baby a name, but I have yet to do so. I will have to think about something that will help me remember.

I'm sorry that she would make one for you, Cindy :(

Not everyones taste but I got a heart tattoo after my 1st pregnancy... it's more like thick coloured heart outline, and then the center is just plain ol' skin... signifies the little empty part of my heart...

After my first miscarriage, I got a swallow with a halo....

I think I might get another similar one now after my most recent...

they'll always be with me just like the memory of my baby.

I think this is such a wonderful idea! I've been trying to think of ways to remember my recent m/c as well. Mine occured about 4 weeks ago, although I only found out last Wednesday. I think that the Christmas ornament is perfect, especially since I lost mine so close to Christmas too.

I recently purchased a pregnancy loss awareness bracelet from http://www.hopeofmyheart.com/ On the outside is a ribbon--on the inside is a hidden message " I'll hold you in heaven" followed by the dates of my miscarriages. It helps me to have a visual reminder- I know I'll never forget, but I wanted some way to keep the memory close. These past few months I've been thinking about them a lot, and since getting this I've felt more peace. Even though it's been a while since the miscarriages(2/04 and11/06) I still feel a void.

What a great idea! Does it make it harder for you to see the reminder daily? I ended up finding an Angel ornament for the Christmas tree and will remember every Christmas I take it out. Right now it's so hard for me to see pregnant women, babies or anything else, since it was my first. For me I think it would be hard to be reminded every day?

I know the question was not at me but I also have a necklace and a sillyband I wear everyday. The sillyband is the same one we put in the baby's little coffin. I never liked them before that day. Now I have a stock pile of them just incase this one breaks I can replace it quickly. My husband found Noah's ark silly bands and we named our little guy Noah so that is why I now wear one. My necklace at first was a set of hands. They where close to the size my little ones hands were. The hands were the first thinf I noticed when I had our baby. So that is why I had the hands first. I never had those off until they broke. Now I dont know anyone that can fix them (that I trust).

Seeing the bracelet doesn't make it harder to deal with now. I think if had just happened, maybe. I know it was hard for me as well to see pregnant women or to see a newborn. I remember having to go back to the ob/gyn for a follow up, it all I could hear were the Doppler sounds of heartbeats. That was a rough day.
