Miscarriage/Pregnancy Loss

Memory box

This might seem really silly but something my husband and I decided to do is put together a memory box of items that we had collected for our baby.  For example: we had bought a onesie at Target, we had taken a few belly pictures, we took pictures of the pregnancy test, a few sympathy cards we received, etc.  We are doing this so that we will always have something to remember this baby by.  It is really helping us cope and I thought I'd share in case anyone else wanted to do something similar.  Hope everyone is doing okay.  I'm so thankful for this board.

Re: Memory box

  • I don't think it seems silly at all. I am glad you are finding something to help you begin to cope.

  • Not silly at all.  My sister did the same thing when she m/c with her first pregnancy at 9 weeks.  That was almost 13 years ago and she still has it.  I didn't have much and refused to accept or buy anything for the baby until we heard a heart beat which we never got to hear.  So, all I have is my pregnancy journal that I got from my OB which I had started writing in and a sympathy card I received from a friend.  I put them in my box of wedding cards for now until I get something better to keep them in.  I also have a pregnancy blog that I started and kept private until we'd told everyone about the pregnancy.  That has since become an m/c blog which I may or may not make public one we have a healthy pregnancy.

    I'm sorry for your loss and am glad you have found a healthy way to memorialize and remember.  *hugs*
