If you had a ultrasound of a living baby before your loss, what did you do with the picture(s)? I stuck mine in a drawer in my jewelry box, I don't know if I will ever be able to throw it away, it will probably sit in a random box of pictures forever...

  • I'm very sorry for your loss, I had several sono's as I did fertility treatments, I had even started a pregnancy journal. This was my first pregnancy and I wasn't ready to let go, as part of the healing process I bought a box that would fit the journal and placed it along with the pictures and a letter I wrote to my baby. I'm not done with this journey and some day I will want those pictures and memories to remind myself just how far I've come.
  • I am in the process (it's taken a few attempts) of journaling on the back of the sonograms. We had a few done (suspicion kept creeping in that this baby wasn't going to stay with us) and I thought I'd have enough space to detail my cravings, feelings, memories of this pregnancy, as well as write little things DS did to interact with "his baby". DH also asked to write down some stories of crazy mood swings or ridiculous pregnant brain moments. Based on how much we all have to say, I'm pretty sure it'll turn into a lengthy letter expressing our love for our bitty. I think I'll store these along with DS's ultrasounds and hospital records... just because I'm not sure where else to put them. I'd like to think I'd do the same with their birth records if they'd made it full term. 

    Hope that helps! *hugs*
  • The only ultrasound I had was in the ER so I don't have one. I wish I did. On my dresser is a 7 week sticker I made for belly shots.... I can't. Throw it away

  • I had 2 u/s pics from very early one - 5w2d and then 6w2d (when we saw a hb).  They are sitting on top of my fridge right now.  I took them off the fridge when I learned I was miscarrying.  Not really sure what to do with them.  Don't want to get rid of them, and don't want to look at them right now.

  • When I was pregnant with my (living) son I had loads (and I'm talking probably about 15) ultrasound pictures! I'm high risk for a medical condition and had 6 scans done and I'd get a few pics at each one. I put them in an album and wrote the date and how many weeks I was. I've had two losses since and had a few pics from each when we saw a heartbeat. I put them in the album with the date and gestation. I also have pictures from my last scan with both losses where there was no heartbeat, but I could still see my babies. I didn't want to throw them away so I added them in, along with the date and gestation I should have been (both were mmc) and wrote it was the day we found out our angels grew their wings. I treasure my scan photo album as it's all I have of my two angel babies aside from pregnancy tests and my maternity notes which I also can't bear to throw away. I'm very sentimental lol
