I am currently mc and I am about 4 1/2-5 weeks along. I am in my 3rd day of mc but its only been 2 days since it has been confirmed. In fact, the day I found out I was pregnant, I started to mc. Even though my baby wasn't planned nor do I know the gender of the baby, would it be a bad idea to name him/her? My OH and I both refer to the baby as a "him" (I am not sure why but it sounds better than calling the baby "it" like the doctors do.) so maybe a unisex name that means something to the both of us. Is this a crazy idea or is this something that many women who suffer mc do? I want to give my baby some validation that he existed and was loved deeply by both of his parents even though we didn't get the chance to meet him. I have never gone through this before and I am still going through the process of mc so I am a roller coaster of emotions. Sorry if my post doesn't make sense, I just want to know if I should name my baby?
It makes sense. I have known a few people who have picked names after a miscarriage. I didn't because I feel like for me it would make everything harder. But if it helps you to greive then there is nothing wrong with it at all.
I agree with previous poster - if it helps you, then do name your lost little one -- I couldn't (I call the baby, my LLO (lost little one))! And don't worry about what is right or wrong, it is whatever is best for YOU....
We had just called the baby sproglet when we found out and thats what he stayed! (never knew if was a boy or girl as missed mc at 8weeks, just a feeling), you just have to do what is best for you look after yourself
hey amore93, name the baby if it will make you feel better - my baby has a nickname too he got it while he was still there, and it just makes it easier for me and my bf - "it" is so horrible to us, feels like it was just some undefined mass instead of a person. good luc with your recovery!
I gave my baby a proper name (first and middle) and she was just 5 1/2 weeks along. I don't care what anyone says, our babies deserve a name and identity too - it also helps others see the baby as your child, not just "a miscarriage". I think it's beautiful and I'm so sorry for your loss.
