hi everyone, i just wondered in which ways were you remembering your lost baby or babies?
i really like the idea of getting a tattoo to remember, already have one tattoo so they are something i would get. thinking of maybe having miscarriage awareness ribbon or flower associated with december with the date possibly.
I've got a pendant which I wear every day - it's a peridot heart which I bought after my first miscarriage as the baby was due in August - peridot is the birthstone for August.
I've also got prints of the flower associated with each month I lost my babies. I've got them in a frame and they're above our bedroom door. I've got violets for my first (lost in Feb), gladilolis for my twins (lost in August) and Lily of the Valley for my daughter (lost in May)
I have a crystal heart and 3 crystal butterflies - sadly the store I bought the butterflies from have discontinued them so I can't get one for my daughter.
I have the Baby Loss Awareness ribbon and I wear it during Baby Loss Awareness Week in October.
I found a Christmas Decoration this year which I instinctively knew I should buy to remember my babies at Christmas time. It's a gold bell decorated with four amber crystals.
I have a memory box in which I keep all the (good news) scan pictures, a little teddy bear my mother gave to me, a card from a colleague with words that meant so much and the little pregnancy book I was filling in when I was pregnant with the twins.
I bought a few things after we loss the baby.I'll share just a few things with you. I wear the baby loss awareness pin on my jacket all the time. I have a baby awareness sticker on my car. I have a windchime angle that has a few words on it for a loss in our bedroom window. I have a suncatcher in my living room window. I bought a keepsake box and put the scan pics and the couple things we bought for the baby and a few other things. I also bought the awareness wrist band. I have a necklace I wear which is called baby tear. The birthstone is the month the baby was due. I friend of mine made a bracelace with the name peanut. That's what we called the baby our little peanut. My husband also has a necklace she made for him.
