I miscarried at 6w2d about a week ago. I am all over the map with emotions. Sometimes I'm just fine...even happy, and optimistic, and sometimes I cry. Its been 6 days since the miscarriage, and I still get upset so I decided to do something about it. I think the only way to give myself a little closure (beside getting pregnant again) is to remember in some way, what I had and lost. I went to and looked for a small necklace to honor my little bean. I found something that was perfect for me, and subtle. Everyone else will think it just another cute necklace, and only I will know the special meaning behind it. I think this may help me in some way to move on, but never forget.

I hope all of you find some closure of your own. :angel:

Sorry for your loss. I had a loss at 9 wks 3 days last month. I bought a butterfly toe ring to remember our little one. I also wrote my little one a letter and made a little keepsake box that I put it in, one of the positive pregnancy tests, a pair of baby socks I had bought, the letter I wrote telling dh we were pregnant. I think it helps to have/.do things like that

I'm sorry for your loss as well. :hugs:

I did the exact same thing that delightfuldoula did with the memory box, almost exactly.

I then went to amazon and bought a charm that was a mother and baby, but I didn't really like it when I got it - it looked nothing like the picture. So that charm went into the baby box. Then I found just what I wanted - a silver angel with the March birthstone in the center of it (when my baby was due). It was perfect and I wear it almost every day.
